The Peoples Democratic party secretariat was set ablaze in the early hours of Tuesday by some suspected political thugs in Gombe.
Topnewsnaija learnt that the PDP office which is situated along Gombe/Bauchi expressway as well as Atiku house were both set on fire damaging documents and other valuables.
A supporter of the party, Muntari Kulsi explained that the office was set on fire at about 1:30 am and he had only left the building around 1:20 am.
He further added that the suspected hoodlums are members of the All Progressive Congress, noting that it would be incomprehensible for both offices to be affected at the same time when they are not closely related.
“Our guys here saw them ,they came in three cars with several weapons, the security guards stationed at the office was overpowered by the thugs and had to run for their lives”. Kulsi stated.
Efforts have been made to reach the Publicity Secretary of the party Muritala Usman at the time of filling this report.
The Atiku Campaign Organization is set to address the public while some groups in the party are seeking for justice as they might on a protest.
Meanwhile, the publicity secretary of the All Progressive Congress, Moses kyari reacting to the allegations said his party had no hand in the destruction of the PDP’s secretariat and campaign office in the state, adding that their office was also affected.
Kyari said, “There is a tiny line with what transpired. Our own office was also burnt at about 12 midnight and as the act was been done, we have footages of who carried out the attack.
“Their own office they claim was burnt around 2 am by unknown people, possibly members of the PDP. But for us, we have video clips of who burnt our office and we have presented them to the police. The APC has no hand in the burning of their state secretariat.”
