Attack On Atiku’s Convoy False – Borno Police

The Borno State Police Command has debunked the news making the rounds on an attack on the convoy of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar.

This comes after a PDP chieftain, Dino Melaye, reportedly said Atiku’s convoy was attacked when the former Vice President was disembarking the venue of the rally in Borno State on Wednesday, adding that “over 100 vehicles were allegedly vandalised by hoodlums from different political parties and about 74 persons hospitalised.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Sani Shatambaya, while addressing newsmen Wednesday, said the purported attack was false.

He said, “The news of the attack on Atiku Abubakar’s convoy was not only fake but a false and mischievous attempt at confusing Nigerians.

“There was no attack on Atiku’s convoy.”

Meanwhile, the chairman, Borno State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, Ali Dalori, also denied that the party sent thugs to attack Atiku’s convoy in reaction to Melaye’s allegation.

“I am disappointed by the allegations made by Dino Meleye that some APC thugs attacked Atiku’s convoy while in Maiduguri for their presidential campaign rally,” Dalori reacted on phone.

“We all know that since Governor Babagana Zulum took over the mantle of leadership, in his acceptance speech, he announced a ban on all political thuggery across the state,” he stressed.
