Following his rally in Katsina state, Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate, and members of his campaign team were attacked.
The attack on the presidential candidate was condemned by Diran Onifade, Head of Media for the Obi/Datti Presidential Campaign Council.
In a statement, he stated;
“Our candidate had met with women in a townhall 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 drivers’ side causing substantial 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.”
