Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), has alleged some hoodlums pelted his car with stones in Katsina State on Monday.
Obi made a campaign stop in the state, controlled by the ruling All Progressives Congress.
According to Diran Onifade, the head of the LP presidential campaign, the attack took place while Obi was heading to airport.
He said the “hoodlums attacked the car our candidate was riding in with heavy stones from his driver’s side, causing substantial damage to the vehicle.”
“Subsequently another set of thugs also threw stones outside the stadium which damaged several vehicles including that of our official stage crew.
“The attacks may have been premeditated at the behest of desperate politicians who had been deluding themselves with the false claim that they had the North-West locked up but are now shocked by the show of force of the Obidient movement in the region,” he added.
