Peter Obi, Labour Party’s presidential candidate for the 2023 election was attacked in Katsina state after his campaign which witnessed a huge turnout on Monday, January 23.
Diran Onifade, Head of Media, Obi/Datti Presidential Campaign Council, said the attack Peter Obi and members of his team were attacked by hoodlums while on their way to the airport after the campaign.
The Labour Presidential campaign condemned the attack and further revealed that they suspect it was arranged by desperate politicians who have been deluding themselves with the false claim that they had the northwest in their pockets but are now shocked by the show of force of the “Obidient movement” in the region.
The statement read;
“Our candidate had met with women in a townhall and then held a hugely successful Rally at the Muhammad Dikko Stadium. However, on his way to the airport, hoodlums attacked the car our candidate was riding in with heavy stones from his drivers’ side causing substantial damage to the vehicle.
“To the glory of God, Mr 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.”
