The Peoples Democratic Party Campaign Council in Ebonyi State has condemned what it described as the unwarranted and heinous attack on the country home of its party chieftain, Boniface Ofoke, in Edukwu Achi, Izzi Local Government Area of the State.
Moses Idika, Deputy Director, Media and Publicity of PDP Campaign Council, revealed this in a statement on Friday.
Idika noted that the attack, which occurred on Thursday night, forced the party to put on hold its campaign rally already fixed to hold in Ofoke’s compound in Izzi area on Friday.
He said: “The thugs came with two Sienna buses on Thursday night swooped on the residence of Ofoke with AK 47 and pump action rifles.
“They ravaged the entire compound in a hail of gunshots, leaving in their trail destruction and hundreds of expended bullets shells.
“We call on the Inspector General of Police (IGP), the Director General of the Department of State Security Service (DSS), the National Security Adviser (NSA), and other security agencies to step in to stop the enemies plan to truncate the electoral process in Ebonyi.
“The politicians fueling this crisis should be reminded that self-preservation is an inherent right of everyone and no one has the monopoly of violence.”
