Thugs Distrupt Zamfara PDP State’s Congress, Set Properties On Fire


From Maiharaji Altine Gusau

Some political thugs carrying dangerous weapons have vandalized the venue of the state’s congress organized by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Zamfara State chapter.

The party was in the process of conducting its state congress slated to hold today Monday, but was disorganized by some political thugs who trouped to the venue, carrying dangerous weapons.

Analyzer news gathered that, immediately the thugs arrived at the venue, they started beating and stoning the PDP members where many people sustained injuries.

Analyzer news also gathered that, the thugs have damaged several cars, chairs, canopies, election materials and set other properties on fire in order to scare away the PDP delegates who converged at the venue for the state congress.

A member of the PDP, Musa Garba said, “We have  scheduled our state congress to hold today (Monday) to enable us elect the news state executive officers to run the affairs of the party in Zamfara State”

“We have notified all the relevant security agencies in the state for smooth conduct of the exercise but to our dismay, these thugs came and started throwing stones on our members”.

“They have also succeeded in destroying many of our vehicles, chairs and the election materials”.

“They have also attempted to burn down our office Secretariat opposite Zamfara State Ministry of Finance if not for the quick response of the security agents”.

Garba wondered why should anybody send the political thugs to stop the PDP congress in the state, calling on the security agents to investigate the issue with a view to punishing those involved in the act.

The congress was however shifted to the Nigerian Army Facility (Command Guest House) in Gusau for security reasons.
