The Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has cried out as his supporters were attacked at the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP’s, ongoing campaign rally in Kaduna State by suspected political thugs.
This was confirmed by the former vice president on Monday in a post on his verified social media accounts.
This comes just a few days after thugs attacked party supporters in Zamfara State, killing at least one person and injuring several others.
Atiku in the post, called on President Muhammadu Buhari to call supporters of all political parties to order in a bid to tackle the reoccurrence of such incident.
He wrote, “I have just received emergency reports of attacks on PDP supporters by thugs sponsored to scuttle the ongoing PDP campaign rally in Kaduna State. This is undemocratic and against the Peace Accord all parties signed up for just a few weeks ago.
“I urge President Muhammadu Buhari to call on all parties to call their supporters and members to order and to ensure that campaigns, just as with the elections themselves, are kept free, fair and safe”.
Casualties recorded during the attack could not be ascertained as of the time of filing this report.
