The Labour Party, LP, presidential campaign council has said that Peter Obi was attacked in Katsina.

This was contained in a statement issued by its head of media, Diran Onifade, saying that Obi’s car was attacked by hoodlums when he was on his way to the airport after a rally in the state.

The statement reads, “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 driver’s 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.”

The campaign council alleged that the attacks may have been orchestrated by “desperate politicians” over Obi’s outing in the state.

It condemned the attacks and asked security agencies to investigate the incident and prevent future occurrences.

The LP campaign added, “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 Obidient 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.”
