The Obi/Datti Presidential Campaign Council has condemned the attack on its Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi in Katsina State.
This is contained in a statement signed by Head of Media of the Council, Mr.
Diran Onifade in Abuja.
The statement explains that Obi was attacked on his way to the airport by hoodlums after his townhall meeting with women and mega rally at the Muhammad Dikko Stadium in the state.
“Hoodlums attacked the car of our candidate was riding in with heavy stones from his drivers side causing substantial damage to the vehicle and to the glory of God, Mr Obi and other occupants of the car were unhurt” Mr. Onifade added.
“Subsequently another set of thugs also threw stones outside the stadium which damaged several vehicles including that of our official stage crew”
It states that both attacks may have been premeditated at the behest of desperate polititicians 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 Obidient movement in the region.
The statement therefore commends the good people of Katsina who came out enmasse to support the campaigns and urged security agencies to investigate the attacks to forestall future occurrences.
