The campaign office of the PDP governorship candidate in Gombe State, Atiku Dan Barde, was discovered today, Monday, December 12 to have been set ablaze by some suspected political thugs.
The details of the purported arson attack are still unknown at the time of filing this report but findings have revealed that documents, furniture, and other valuables were destroyed.
Junaidu Usman Abubakar, the Deputy Director-General of Media for the Atiku Dan Barde Campaign Management Council for the PDP in Gombe confirmed the attack to journalists.
Abubakar had accused the hoodlums of working for the state governor, Inuwa Muhammad of carrying out the arson attack who is a member of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
While making a statement early this morning, Abubakar had said: “Our campaign office has been set on fire by APC thugs on the directives of Governor Inuwa Muhammad Yahaya just now.”
Recall that back in February 2022, alleged political thugs had vandalized the campaign office of former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar located near Investment Quarters. The office’s windows had been broken, while other valuable items were pilfered.
