Thugs Did Not Attack Atiku’s Convoy, Borno APC Says 

Muhammed Abubakar, Reporting

THE Borno State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has refuted there was an attack on the convoy of presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, in Maiduguri on Wednesday.

The APC state party Chairman, Ali Bukar Dalori, in an interview with journalists in Maiduguri, described Dino Meleye as a liar and always not upright with the truth.

Stonix News had reported that the Spokesman of the Atiku Campaign Organisation, Dino Meleye, had, while addressing mammoth crowd at Ramat Square, alleged that APC thugs attacked the convoy of Mr Abubakar along Shehuri ward after paying homage to the Shehu of Borno, Alhaji Abubakar Garbai Elkanemi.

According to him, no fewer than 74 who were injured were being hospitalized in hospitals.

But Dalori said “I am disappointed by the allegations made by Dino Meleye that some APC thugs attacked Atiku’s convoy while in Maiduguri for their Presidential Campaign rally.

“We all know that, since Governor Babagana Zulum took over the mantle of leadership, in  his acceptance speech, he banned all political thuggery across the state.

“Our ruling party is a law-abiding political party, and that was why we as government did not deny PDP venue for their rally as witnessed in some states.

“All I know is that there is no PDP in Borno, and if Dino Meleye would lack what he will tell the people of Borno on what they intend to canverse for votes, he should desist from fabricating lies against our party”, he added.
