At least 74 persons were hospitalised while several vehicles amounting to 100 were reportedly vandalised as hoodlums attacked the convoy of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital.
The PDP Spokesperson, Senator Dino Melaye disclosed this during the party rally in Maiduguri.
He pointed an accusing finger on the All Progressives Congress (APC) of trying to stop their campaign in the state by deploying thugs to attack them.
He said that deployed thugs attacked the convoys with stones, sticks, machetes as they left the Shehu’s Palace to come to the Ramat Square, all in an attempt to stop the rally.
In a video seen on social media, a group of people were seen running in different directions as gunshots rend the air.
According to an eye witness who spoke under the condition of anonymity said so many people were badly and severely wounded and close to 100 vehicles also vandalized .
