The Obi/Datti Presidential Campaign Council has condemned the attack on the convoy of it's Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi in Katsina, Katsina State on Monday.

A statement signed by Diran Onifade, Head of Media of the Labour Party PCC revealed that Obi had met with women in a town hall and then held a Rally at the Muhammad Dikko Stadium after which the attack occured.

"On his way to the airport, hoodlums attacked the car our candidate was riding in with heavy stones from his drivers side causing substantial damage to the vehicle.To the glory of God, Mr Obi and other occupants of the car were unhurt.

"Subsequently another set of thugs also threw stones outside the stadium which damaged several vehicles including that of our official stage crew. The two incidents taken together make us suspect that the attacks may have been premeditated at the behest of desperate politicians who had been deluding themselves with the false claim that they had the northwest locked up but are now shocked by the show of force of the Obidient movement in the region." the statement partly read.

While thanking the people of Katsina for their show of love for the Labour Party Presidential candidate, the PCC called on security agencies to investigate this matter to forestall future occurrences.
