Thugs have destroyed the Campaign Office of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the Dekina Local Government Area of Kogi State.
Naija News reports that the Kogi APC Governorship Campaign Council Spokesman, Kingsley Fanwo, made this known on Friday in a statement in Lokoja.
Fanwo alleged that the hoodlums were sponsored by the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and urged their supporters in Dekina LGA to avoid the temptation of launching a reprisal even in the face of provocation and intimidation.
He said APC stands for peace, and the party’s Governorship candidate, Usman Ododo, was widely accepted across the state.
The party spokesman added that the Legal Directorate was compiling a comprehensive report after a preliminary report had been lodged.
He said: “This is to bring to the attention of the general public and law enforcement agencies that our Campaign Office in Dekina LGA has been vandalised by hoodlums.
“We want to commend the people of Kogi East for standing by the candidate, who signposts the unity of our dear state and for believing in a united and prosperous state.”
Reacting to the allegation of sponsoring the vandalisation, the SDP State Secretary, Arome Okeme, denied involvement and described it as the architect of APC trying to drag his party in the mud.
Okeme said SDP and its supporters remained peaceful with full hope of victory at the Nov. 11 Governorship Election in the state.
