Thugs on Monday disrupted a rally of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kaduna State.
The former lawmaker representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District Shehu Sani raised the alarm in a tweet.
Sani tweeted that the thugs invaded the venue of the PDP rally in Kaduna on Monday with swords and machetes.
The PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar also confirmed the attack in posts on his verified social media handles on Monday.
Atiku urged President Muhammadu Buhari to call supporters of all political parties to order so as to forestall recurrence of such incident.
“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.
“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,” Atiku stated.
It unclear if there are casualties from the attack as of the time of filing this report.
