Ola ‘Kiya, Reporting

THUGS have reportedly attacked the convoy of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, injuring no fewer than 74 persons in Maiduguri.

The 74 persons have been hospitalised while several vehicles were vandalised in the wake of the melee.

The PDP presidential campaign spokesperson, Dino Melaye, disclosed this during the party’s rally in Maiduguri.

He said that the act was to try to stop their campaign in the state by deploying thugs to attack them.

“They deployed their thugs to attack our convoys with stones, sticks, machetes as we left the Shehu’s Palace to come to the Ramat Square, all in an attempt to stop our rally.

He lamented that the thugs were deployed in many strategic locations to attack “our supporters

“But we want to assure them that nobody can stop us.”

Melaye, however, did not identify the faces or sponsors of the attackers on PDP’s campaign trail.
