The Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Council has denounced the assault on Peter Obi’s campaign team that occurred on Monday after a rally in Katsina.
The campaign team said that the aforementioned attack happened after Obi held a rally at the Muhammad Dikko Stadium and interacted with women in a town hall.
Obi was allegedly accosted by some thugs while traveling to the airport, according to a statement from the organization’s head of media, Diran Onifade.
The statement said: “On his (Obi) 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, 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 team narrated in
“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 North-West locked up but are now shocked by the show of force of the Obidient movement in the region.”
