The convoy of former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, and Presidential Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), was reportedly attacked on Wednesday in Maiduguri, Borno State.
The presidential campaign trail of the opposition party landed in Borno, an All Progressives Congress (APC) controlled state today, reports Daily Independent.
It was reported that vehicles were vandalised in the convoy of Atiku at Ramat Square in Maiduguri, the state capital.
Spokesman of the Atiku Campaign, Senator Dino Malaye, blamed the attack on the ruling party in Borno.
Melaye lamented that more than 70 people were hospitalised.
“They wanted to prevent us from holding the campaign. As we speak, 74 people were injured and hospitalised.
“Several vehicles were vandalised by APC thugs.”
The APC is yet to react to Melaye’s allegation as of the time of filing this report.
