The spokesman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Council, Dino Melaye, has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of sending thugs to attack the Atiku Abubakar’s campaign convoy in Maiduguri, Borno state.
Melaye claimed that 74 persons were hospitalised while over 100 vehicles were vandalised by the hoodlums
Melaye made the claims during the party rally in Maiduguri on Wednesday.
Melaye accused the APC of trying to stop their campaign in the state by deploying thugs to attack them.
He said “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.”
