Suspected hoodlums have attacked the campaign Secretariat of the Kogi State governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) Muritala Yakubu Ajaka.
It was gathered that the criminals attacked the facility located around Paparanda junction in Lokoja, the state capital, on Sunday morning.
The frontage which was made of glass was vandalized just as the banners of President Ahmed Bola Tinubu which was pasted on the wall of the Secretariat was pulled down and burnt to ashes in front of the office.
Speaking with newsmen on Sunday at the Campaign Secretariat, the running mate to SDP governorship candidate, Chief Sam Abenemi described the attack as unfortunate.
According to him, some hoodlums had last week approached the security men at the campaign Secretariat asking them to remove the Billboards and Banners of Asiwaju Tinubu/Shettima from the Campaign Secretariat.
”But it is important to state that the President Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu have been a mentor to our candidate, Alhaji Muritala Yakubu Ajaka – a man he has looked up to politically.
“Because of his believe in the Asiwaju Tinubu Presidency, Alhaji Muritala worked tirelessly to ensure his victory in the State because he believed in his capacity to take Nigeria forward.
”Alhaji Muritala and the Kogi State SDP is resolutely in support of the success of the President Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu’s administration and will continue to pray for him to succeed”
”We urged all our supporters to remain calm in the face of all forms of provocation. We’re winning the November governorship election, reason why some people are scared and using intimidation”.
The SDP Deputy Governorship Candidate called on the security agencies in the State to fish out the perpetrators of the attack on the campaign Secretariat.
