The campaign team of the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, was attacked in Katsina State while on a state-to-state tour.
In a statement issued by the Head of Media for the Obi/Datti Presidential Campaign Council, Diran Onifade, it was reported that hoodlums threw heavy stones at the car carrying Mr. Obi, causing substantial damage to the vehicle.
Fortunately, Mr. Obi and other occupants of the car were unharmed. Additionally, stones were thrown outside the Muhammad Dikko Stadium which damaged several vehicles, including those of the campaign’s official stage crew.
Onifade suspects that the attacks may have been premeditated by desperate politicians who had been deluding themselves with the false claim that they had the northwest in their pockets, but are now shocked by the show of force of the “Obidient movement” in the region.
He calls for security agencies to investigate the attacks to prevent future occurrences and commends the people of Katsina for their support on Monday.
