Gun Men Attack Campaign Ground In Akwa Ibom State

Many have been feared injured as sudden gunshots ravaged the campaign ground of the All Progressives Congress (APC) along Edet Akpan Avenue, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

A Keke (tricycle) rider who witnessed the incident said he saw three men alight from a Toyota Hilux parked across the road, opposite the campaign ground popularly known as Nsima Ekere campaign ground.

He said the men walked across the road, stood by the gate of the campaign ground and then opened fire into the premises before they ran back to their truck and took off.

The campaign ground, which is almost the size of two football fields, is always a busy place and is used for a series of political activities, especially this election season.

Naija News recalls that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who represented President Muhammadu Buhari, was at the campaign ground on Monday, alongside the APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, and other APC chieftains, for a political rally.
