APC denies thugs attacked Atiku, supporters in Borno
The All Progressives Congress in Borno has denied the alleged attack on Atiku Abubakar and his supporters in the state. Dino Melaye, a spokesperson for Atiku’s campaign, had claimed political thugs injured 74 of their supporters.
Ali Bukar Dalori, the APC chairman in the state, denied the attack.
He said, “I am disappointed by the allegations made by Dino Melaye that some APC thugs attacked Atiku’s convoy, while in Maiduguri for their presidential campaign rally.
“We all know that since Governor Babagana Zulum took over the mantle of leadership, he banned political thuggery across the state.
“Our ruling party is a law-abiding one, and that was why we, as a government, did not deny PDP venue for their rally as witnessed in some states.
“All I know is that there is no PDP in Borno.
“And if Dino Melaye lacked what to tell the people of Borno or how to canvass for votes, he should desist from fabricating lies against our party.”
