Persons suspected to be political thugs have attacked supporters of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar at the ongoing campaign rally in Kaduna State.
Atiku confirmed the attack via a post on his verified social media handles on Monday.
Recall that few days ago, thugs attacked supporters of the party in Zamfara State leading to the death of at least one person, while several others were injured.
Meanwhile, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on the president Buhari to address the security situation in the country to prevent a re-occurrence of such incident.
“I have just received emergency reports of attacks on PDP supporters by thugs sponsored to scuttle the ongoing PDP campaign rally in Kaduna State. This is undemocratic and against the Peace Accord all parties signed up for just a few weeks ago.
“I urge President Muhammadu Buhari to call on all parties to call their supporters and members to order and to ensure that campaigns, just as with the elections themselves, are kept free, fair and safe”.
Casualties recorded during the attack could not be ascertained as of the time of filing this report.
