The Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign Organisation in Ondo state has condemned the attack on its office in Akure, the Ondo state capital by unknown hoodlums.
Kayode Fasua, the spokesman of the campaign in the state alleged that the hoodlums were working for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
Fasua in a statement revealed that the hoodlums in the early hours of wednesday stormed the Ijapo office of the PDP campaign council and descended on security man on duty,adding that banners, billboards and posters were destroyed.
“They arrived in the wee hours of the day, at a time the security guards in the Ijapo, Akure area of our office would have closed from duty and descended on our campaign office.
“Numbering about 10, and fully armed, they descended on our private security guard, beat him to a pulp and then tied him with ropes.
“After that, they proceeded by dismantling the Atiku billboards, and then tearing all his posters.
“Not done, these agents of the devil went ahead to break window panels and kept shouting “where are those documents, where are those documents!
“But having failed in their evil deed, they retreated, shooting sporadically,” the statement read.
Fasua called on the security agents to investigate the perpetrators of the evil deed and bring them to book.
Also in his reaction, the Director General of the Atiku Campaign Organisation in Ondo State, Eyitayo Jegede, described the attack as “barbaric and alien to the spirit of democracy that the Nigerian society should embrace in a fast-advancing world.”
