Nigeria: Buhari's Director of Music, Rarara Denies Report of Assassination Attempt

A popular Kano Musician and National Director of Music for the Buhari 2019 Presidential Support Committee, Dauda Kahutu Rarara, on Wednesday denied reports of an assassination attempt on his life.

Rarara who spoke with Daily Trust's reporter on phone said he "knew nothing of it."

The rumour started making the round on Tuesday night that some unknown gunmen have attacked the musician in his studio along Zoo Road in Kano.

The rumour added that the musician narrowly escaped before they set his studio ablaze.

"It is all lie," he said.

"I knew nothing of it. Bashir, are you new in Nigeria or Kano? People out of their ulterior motive said a lot of lies about me.

"They said I died, they said I had an accident and my leg and hand have been amputated; they said my house was burnt down because I sang a song against Kwankwaso and Shekarau. Nothing is new. It was all lie," he said.

The singer further said he is safe, sound and healthy.

"I am safe, sound and healthy; I am now in the studio composing a special song for Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano state that would be use during a special programme in Gama Ward where gubernatorial election would hold on Saturday," he concluded.
