The alleged attack on Peter Obi’s campaign bus following a rally in Katsina on Monday has been criticized by the Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Council. The campaign team claims that the attack happened after Obi had a town hall meeting with women and held a rally at the Muhammad Dikko Stadium. As a result, according to The PUNCH, Obi moved his campaign to Katsina, where he pledged to address unemployment, insecurity, and hunger issues.
If elected, Obi and his campaign team, including his running mate, Datti Baba- Ahmed, promised the crowd they would do everything they could to serve the nation. He pledged to keep all his commitments to Nigerians and insisted that voters should have faith in him and his party to continue the nation’s development. However, the campaign team said that Obi was accosted by some roughnecks while en route to the airport. The statement said the hoodlums hurled heavy stones at the Presidential aspirant’s vehicle and convoy, though no one was hurt.
Regardless of the dreadful encounter on their way out of the state, the group thanked Katsina residents who came out to support Obi’s campaign on Tuesday and urged security agencies to look into the incident to prevent similar incidents in the future.
