Murtala Sule Garo, deputy governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano State has accused Al Hassan Doguwa, majority leader of the house of representatives, of hitting him with a teacup.
The incident was said to have occurred at the home of Garo on Monday, BBC Hausa reported.
The house of representatives member was angry that he was not invited to the meeting as a stakeholder of the party in the state.
The deputy governorship candidate alleged that Doguwa threw a teacup at him while demanding an explanation for his exemption from the meeting.
When he invaded the meeting, he started disagreeing that he was not involved in the meeting because it was a time of sharing money but when it comes to the difficult task of the party he will be invited,” BBC quoted Garo as saying.
“Mr Doguwa accused me of destroying his banners which I denied, he grabbed a teacup in front of the deputy governor and threw it at me.”
But the house majority leader said the allegation that he attacked Garo with a cup is false.
“Contrary to what people are saying, I did not throw a teacup at him,” the lawmaker told BBC.
The party at the state and federal levels is yet to comment on the development.
