Thugs on Monday attacked and destroyed properties including vehicles at the venue of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Congress in Zamfara State.
Some of the other materials destroyed by the thugs include voting materials, nomination forms, and chairs. Canopies at the venue were also set ablaze.
Naija News understands the congress was eventually shifted from Zaitun Oil mill, behind State Pilgrim Board to the Command Guest House in Gusau, the state capital.
Reacting to the attack, the Personal Secretary to Deputy Governor of Zamfara State, Umar Aminu was quoted by Channels Television to have said the PDP won’t be intimidated by the happening.
Some of the PDP stalwarts present at the congress include the Zamfara Deputy Governor, Barrister Mahdi Aliyu Gusau, and the Caretaker Chairman of the party, Ambassador Bala Mande.
Over one thousand delegates are attending the congress expected to produce the next set of officials to lead the PDP in Zamfara State.
Below are some pictures from the scene of the attack.
Meanwhile, Nigeria’s ruling party, the All Progressive Congress, APC, may witness a major crisis early next year should it fail to conduct its National Convention as recently rescheduled, Naija News reports.
This is as a faction of the party is sending warnings to Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) over the delayed party convention.
It could be recalled that the ruling party announced weeks ago that its convention will hold February 5, 2022.
In its statement earlier, the convention committee attributed the yuletide period and factional party crisis to why it couldn’t hold its National Convention this year.
