Assailants have reportedly attacked Hon. Jonathan Asake’s campaign vehicle in Kaduna State’s Gidan Waya, Jema’a local government area, on Friday. Asake is the Labour Party’s (LP) candidate for governor of Kaduna State.
Four youths were injured in the attack, including two males and two females, according to a statement issued by Mr. James Swam, the media aide to the LP governorship candidate.
The incident allegedly occurred when the campaign team was touring the local government while the campaign convoy was traveling through Gidan Waya during the Friday Juma’at prayers on its way to Godogodo and other towns.
He claimed that as soon as the first three vehicles in the convoy passed through the used tires that had been used to mark the path, thugs began hurling rocks, sticks, and other dangerous objects at the extensive convoy.
“It took the timely intervention of the security personnel attached to the candidate to forestall a crisis,” he stated.
