The campaign office of a factional gubernatorial candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the November 26 Governorship election in Ondo State, Barrister Jimoh Ibrahim (CFR), was on Saturday night, attacked and vandalized by unknown hoodlums in Akure, the state capital.
The newly renovated building is located along the busy Oyemekun road, in Akure.
An eyewitness account disclosed that some gunmen allegedly stormed the building at about 8:30 pm in a Toyota Bus branded with Eyitayo Jegede posters, went on rampage, destroyed and vandalised the newly installed PDP flags, the Nigeria National flag and the big billboard mounted on the top floor of the building.
While conducting newsmen around the building on Sunday, the Director of Media and Publicity of PDP in the state, Yemi Akintomide, described the act as barbaric, destructive and a very dangerous way of playing politics.
Akintomide said 18 poles with PDP flags, representing each of the eighteen council areas of the state and a Nigeria National coloured flag, just installed on Saturday morning, at the frontage of the campaign office by a governorship aspirant of the party, Bamiduro Dada, were all destroyed by the political thugs.
He said the hoodlums also pulled down and vandalised the campaign billboard of Ibrahim mounted on top of the storey-building.
He, however, said nobody was attacked as the perpetrators of the dastardly act came in the night after occupants of the office had left and the structure was under lock and key.
