The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has condemned the attack on the convoy of its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar in Borno State.

Scores of Atiku’s supporters were injured on Wednesday when hoodlums attacked the convoy of the presidential hopeful in Maiduguri, the state capital.

It was reported that Atiku’s convoy was attacked just as he left the Palace of the Shehu of Borno to Ramat Square, the venue of the presidential rally.

Shortly after the attack, PDP spokesman, Debo Ologunagba, issued a statement, calling on the Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, to arrest this constant incidence of violence being unleashed.

He accused the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, of orchestrating the attack by sponsoring the armed thugs.

The PDP spokesman commended the Borno people for coming out en masse to resist the APC thugs and ensured the success of the PDP’s Presidential Campaign Rally in support of Atiku Abubakar.

He said the main opposition party cannot be deterred by cowardly attacks, adding that Nigerians are already connected with the PDP’s issue-based campaign in the mission to rescue, rebuild and redirect our nation from the asphyxiating misrule of the APC.
