THE campaign team of the PDP candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu was yesterday attacked at Jattu, the home town of the APC deputy governorship candidate, Philip Shaibu in Etsako West local government by youths allegedly said to be sympathetic to the APC who destroyed two vehicles in the process.
Yesterday’s attack it was learnt followed an arson attack by some alleged APC supporters on Monday night of the residence of Mr. Emma Musa, the PDP Coordinator in the same locality. The two vehicles destroyed in Jattu during the attack included a Mercedes Benz C class and a Toyota Sienna. The attack happened as the campaign convoy was leaving the town but ran into a two-vehicle convoy of vehicles branded in APC colours that were chanting anti-PDP slogans.
As at press time it was not certain if any arrest had been made as the incident was promptly reported to the Nigerian Police Area Command in Auchi by the PDP candidate in the company of the State chairman, Chief Dan Orbih. Meanwhile, a bewildered Musa whose residence was attacked told journalists that he was happy that he was not at home when the incident took place but regretted that he lost such personal effects as his plasma TV sets, refrigerators, beds and clothes as well as cash. He also said that his younger brother, Orbo Johnbull Musa, who was fast asleep when the apartment was attacked and suffered mild burns on his two legs, was in good health.
