Suspected Hoodlums Deface Atiku Campaign Office

Published

The campaign office of the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar in Ondo State has reportedly been attacked by suspected hoodlums.

The hoodlums who were accused of vandalising the billboard of the PDP candidate, reported scaled through the fence of the office located beside the Federal College of Agriculture (FECA) on Ijapo road in Akure.

The development was confirmed by the Personal assistant to the state’s coordinator of the party’s presidential campaign, Olumide Ogunkua.

He noted the hoodlums after entering to the compound of the campaign office began to chant the APC slogan of “Next Level” and destroying the posters bearing Atiku /Obi for 2019 president.

Ogunkua said: “We got a call from one of our sympathisers that the new billboards, banners and posters in front of our campaign office have been vandalized.

“Upon receiving the call, we arrived at the office and we saw that the all the banners and posters of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar had been removed while some were defaced.

“Upon entering the premises, we discovered that the security guard was tied up and his two phones were taken away.

“When we inquired from him what really happened, he told us that he heard people destroying the banners and he shouted but the hoodlums jumped over the fence and held him hostage before they continued to perpetrate their dastardly act.

“According to the security guard, the hoodlums were shouting the next level when they were destroying the bill boards and banners.

“This is unacceptable, we call on the appropriate authorities to put a stop to these unwarranted attacks because if not it will put a threat to the peaceful conduct of the general election come February 2019.”

SP. Femi Joseph, the Spokesperson of the State police command, who said that he had not been briefed on the situation, confirmed, however, that the incident occurred at the Ijapo divsion of the command.
