Katsina: Peter Obi Deplores Post-Rally Attacks On His Campaign Team


The Obi/Datti Presidential Campaign Council has condemned the attack on the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Mr. Peter Obi in Katsina, Katsina State on Tuesday.

According to a statement by Diran Onifade Head of Media, “Our candidate had met with women in a town hall and then held a hugely successful Rally at the Muhammad Dikko Stadium.

“However on his way to the airport, hoodlums attacked the car our candidate was riding in with heavy stones from his driver’s side causing substatial damage to the vehicle.
“To the glory of God, Mr. Obi and other occupants of the car were unhurt.

“Subsequently another set of thugs also threw stones outside the stadium which damaged several vehicles including that of our official stage crew.
“The two incidents taken together make us suspect that the attacks may have been premeditated at the behest of desperate politicians who had been deluding themselves with the false claim that they had the northwest locked up but are now shocked by the show of force of the Obedient movement in the region.
While thanking the good people of Katsina who came out en masse to support our campaign yesterday, we call on security agencies to investigate this matter to forestall future occurrences.
