Atiku Expresses Displeasure Over Thugs’ Attack On PDP Supporters In Zamfara And Kaduna

On Monday the 17th of October 2022, the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, expressed his total displeasure on the attack of his supporters in Zamfara and Kaduna states on Friday, the 14th.

The attack which led to the death of one of the PDP members and is alleged to have been carried out by political thugs has forced the former vice president to appeal to President Muhammadu Buhari to “call all political parties, to caution their supporters as 2023 campaigns intensify.”



Atiku took to his Twitter handle to express his displeasure, while condemning the attack, according to him; it was an attempt to scuttle the lawful right of Nigerians to assemble peacefully.

In his words: “I have received reports of coordinated attacks on members of our great party, the PDP, by thugs in Zamfara State, which reportedly led to the death of one of our members. I condemn these attacks in entirety because it is an attempt to scuttle the lawful right of Nigerians to assemble peacefully and a direct attempt to suppress the legitimate campaigns of the PDP in the state.

“I reassure the Zamfara State PDP of my support, and most importantly, my heart goes out to the PDP family in Zamfara and the friends and loved ones of victims of this attack.

“I urge President Muhammadu Buhari to call on all parties to call their supporters and members to order and to ensure that campaigns, just as with the elections themselves, are kept free, fair and safe.

“I have just received emergency reports of attacks on PDP supporters by thugs sponsored to scuttle the ongoing PDP campaign rally in Kaduna State. This is undemocratic and against the Peace Accord all parties signed up for just a few weeks ago.”
