Thugs invades PDP Congress Venue, Destroy vehicles, chairs, Others

Suspected thugs have invaded and disrupted the Peoples Democratic Party PDP State Congress in Gusau, Zamfara State Northwest Nigeria on Monday.

The congress is to enable party members to Elect Officials that will steer the ship of the party in the next three years

This follows the recent defection of the state Governor Bello Matawalle from the PDP to the ruling APC

The thugs attacked the venue of the congress and started pelting stones at some members of the party who were on the ground before the commencement of the congress

Vehicles, Chairs, Canopies, and other valuables at the venue were destroyed by unidentified political thugs whose mission was to prevent the conduct of the congress
Authorities of the party say no amount of intimidation will prevent them from conducting their party Congresses which is their Constitutional right

Meanwhile, the Zamfara State PDP has relocated the congress to another venue that seems to be safer. The Congress is ongoing in an undisclosed venue

An effort by newsmen to speak with the spokesperson of the Police Command in the State was futile as there was no response from several phone calls made.
