Some of the allegations levelled against the SSA, according to a statement jointly signed by the Coordinator Elect of NANS, Zone A, Comrade Umar Faruk Lawal, and Chairman of the CPC, Comrade Mohammed Yusuf, bother on criminal intimidation, destruction of property, disturbace of public peace and sponsoring of rioting thugs armed with deadly weapons, during a recent free and fair election won by Umar Faruk of IBB University, Lapai, Niger State, and emerging as Cordinator Elect of NANS Zone A.

The duo also demanded that the SSA and Usman Ayuba must take full responsibilities and pay for the damages of the destroyed properties.
The winning Coordinator Elect who claimed he has pictorial evidence also alleged that Usman Ayuba has paid some thugs to kill Mohammed Yusuf, CPC Chairman, on this same issue.
Faruk said Usman Ayuba must desist from parading himself as the coordinator of NANS Zone A, adding that “his failure to do that will amount to mobilising Nigerians to do the needful on the matter”

The election involved 10 states and was held at Abdulsalam Abubakar Youth Centre, Minna, Niger State.
However, the valuation of the destruction unleashed by some hoodlums the SSA mobilised was put at One Million, Two Hundred Thousand Naira (1,200,000) only.
However, copies of the petition have been recieved in the offices of Inspector General of Police IGP and Director General of Department of State Service DG DSS.
