On Sunday morning, several unnamed political hoodlums stormed Senator Magnus Abe’s campaign office, who is running for governor of Rivers State on behalf of the Social Democratic Party (SDP).
This information was revealed in a tweet by SuperFM, who said that the facility in the state’s Nonwa hamlet in Tai Local Government Area had been demolished by thugs.
The radio station tweeted that “suspected political thugs in the early hours of morning attacked and demolished the campaign office of the Social Democratic Party SDP Senator MAGNUS ABE in Nonwa hamlet of Tai Local Government Area.”
News direct earlier reported several attacks connected to political activities ahead of the 2023 general elections.
For instance, in September, it was reported that gunmen suspected to be political thugs loyal to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) attacked members of the Labour Party during their meetings in Enugu State.
It was gathered that the attack happened during ward meetings at Aninri and Awgu local government areas of the state.
Sources told news direct that while nobody was killed in the attack, some people were injured while their cars, chairs and canopies were vandalised.
The LP governorship candidate in Enugu, Hon Chijioke Edeoga, said the hoodlums destroyed chairs, cars, and others. He said some members of the LP were wounded.
