The campaign office of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has been vandalised by some suspected thugs of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Dekina local government area of the state.
In a press statement issued on Thursday, the Spokesman, Kogi State APC Governorship Campaign Council, Kingsley Femi Fanwo said the APC Campaign Office in Dekina LGA has been vandalized by some hoodlums known to be supporting the Governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party.
His words, “It is unfortunate that after realising that their ethnic jingoism is not achieving desired results for them, a handful of supporters openly associating with the SDP Governorship Candidate, Yakubu Muritala are visiting their livid frustration on our campaign offices across Kogi East.
“We want to commend the people of Kogi East for standing by the candidate which signposts the unity of our dear state and for believing in a united and prosperous state.
“In the face of the obvious provocation and violation of the civil way of playing politics, we urge our supporters in Dekina LGA to avoid the temptation of launching a reprisal as our party stands for peace. We are widely accepted across the state and only the losers are displaying cowardice.
“We have made a preliminary report to law enforcement agencies and our Legal Directorate is filing a more comprehensive report with the hope that law enforcement agents will do what is right, investigate the matter thoroughly and ensure perpetrators are prosecuted to serve as a deterrent to others nursing such acts of cowardice.
“As a party, we remain committed to peace and will not join destroyers and ethnic jingoists in their acts. We will do what is right, just, fair and peaceful”.
