The convoy of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, was on Wednesday attacked in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State.

In a video making round on social media, a group of persons could be sighted running for their safety directions amid gunshots.

The presidential campaign personnel of the PDP reached Borno State, a state under the control of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday.

It was gathered that some vehicles in the convoy of the presidential flabearer were vandalised at Ramat Square in Maiduguri.

Senator Dino Malaye, who’s the spokesman of the Atiku Campaign, put the blame of the attack on the ruling party in the state.

Melaye disclosed that more than 70 persons sustained various degrees of injuries and were hospitalised.

“They wanted to prevent us from holding the campaign, as we speak, 74 people were injured and hospitalised.

“Several vehicles were vandalised by APC thugs.”

The ruling APC has not reacted to the allegations of Melaye as of the time of producing this report.
