The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi on Tuesday revealed how his campaign was attacked in Katsina State.

Obi, during his address at the rally had promised to tackle insecurity if he emerges as president in 2023.

Obi/Datti presidential campaign council in a statement released through its Head of Media, Diran Onifade, said the attack on Obi and his campaign team is condemnable.

The statement reads, “Our candidate had met with women in a town hall and then held a hugely successful Rally at the Muhammad Dikko Stadium. However, on his way to the airport, hoodlums attacked the car our candidate was riding in with heavy stones from his driver’s side causing substantial damage to the vehicle.

“To the glory of God, Mr Obi and other occupants of the car were unhurt. Subsequently, another set of thugs also threw stones outside the stadium which damaged several vehicles including that of our official stage crew.”

He noted that the attack may have been carried out by some politicians who think they have the northwest in their pockets but are shocked by Obi’s presence in the region.
