Putting the record straight as a resident of the area and a stakeholder, Babagana Yusuf Banki disclosed to news men that, some PDP thugs on the eve of the APC rally erected a temporary shed made up of thatch roof just to show the little presence of the opposition party with the intention to inciting trouble and gain cheep popularity.
Babagana Yusuf Banki added that it was the PDP thugs that upon Sighting the APC campaign procession, started abusive words to the extent of throwing stones which led to the damaging of windscreen of some vehicles belonging to APC members.
In retaliation, the APC members chased them away, adding that it is the cigarettes left over used by the PDP thugs that ignited the fire that eventually resulted to the destruction of the shed.
