The All Progressives Congress guber candidate in Katsina State, Aminu Bello Masari has condemned the wave of attacks targeted at his campaign offices allegedly by the agents of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In a statement issued to Peoples Daily yesterday, signed by his Special Assistant Media, Mallam Abdu Labaran, the former Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives, drew the attention of the general public, particularly the security agencies in the state over what he described as “barbaric attacks on and vandalization” of his campaign offices by sponsored thugs.
According to the statement, “The systematic, planned and deliberate vandalisation of the campaign offices, also known as Restoration Project 2015, which culminated in the attack on the WTC Road head office of the organisation last night, started five days ago, when armed youth, chanting PDP slogan, attacked the APC Youth Vanguard office located along IBB Way, Katsina.
“It is our belief that the continuous cowardly attacks on the APC’s offices are emboldened, indeed encouraged, by the refusal of the security agencies to apprehend the offenders and their sponsors, even as these acts of thuggery are most of the times carried out in the sight of the police.
“We consider this development as not only unfortunate, but worrisome, taking place with impunity in spite of the undertaking signed by the leadership and the presidential candidates of all the political parties to conduct their campaigns peacefully in both action and pronouncement.” He lamented
