The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has raised the alarm over a plot to scuttle the party’s presidential campaign in Zamfara state.

The presidential hopeful raised the alarm on Monday, October 17, while reacting to the Sunday, October 16 clash between the suspected thugs of the PDP and the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

The Gusau Police Command confirmed that one person and 18 others were injured during the clash.

The security agency added that the groups were suspected members of the APC and the PDP in the state.

But Atiku took to his verified Twitter handle on Monday morning, describing the clash as an attempt to scuttle the lawful rights of Nigerians as well as the legitimate campaign of the PDP in the state.

The former vice president sympathises with the victims’ families of the attack while expressing his support for the PDP in the state.

His statement reads in part:

“I condemn these attacks in entirety because it is an attempt to scuttle the lawful right of Nigerians to assemble peacefully and a direct attempt to suppress the legitimate campaigns of the PDP in the state.”
