5 Killed At Buhari’s Rally In Taraba, Governor Ishaku’s Convoy Attacked - Nation by Dammylink(m): 5:54pm On Feb 07
Five persons were on Thursday feared killed and many injured in Taraba during President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign in the northeastern state.

Two were said to be in critical state.

Governor Ishaku’s convoy was also attacked on its way out of the Danbaba Suntai Airport where he, his deputy Haruna Manu and other officials of the government went to see off the president at the end of his rally.

All of the governor’s posters and billboards and those of Atiku Abubakar in the State capital, Jalingo, were mutilated.

Bala Dan Abu, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to Governor Darius Ishaku, who confirmed the incident, condemned the “unfortunate bloodletting” and faulted security agents of negligence of duty.

Abu, who briefed reporters in Government House said: “The deputy governor’s car and several other cars in the convoy, including that of the commissioner of police and a special Adviser to the governor, were damaged.

“The thugs, most of whom were imported from neighbouring states to create the false impression that APC enjoys a large following in the state, came heavily armed.

“They carried guns, cutlasses and sticks, which they displayed openly and in the full glare of security agents who merely looked the other way,” Abu said.

The governor’s media chief also accused the “APC thugs” of going round Jalingo metropolis and destroying PDP posters and billboards.

“They were given cover by the security agencies who fired gunshots to scare away those who may dare to confront them.

“What happened today is a big contrast to the PDP presidential flag-off of February 5 in Jalingo, which attracted a large crowd but recorded no incidence of crisis and deaths.

“Residents of Wukari are still leaking the wounds of the APC violent visitation of January 29, during which PDP posters and bill boards were torn and a member of the PDP killed.

“The Taraba State government will no longer fold its arms while innocent people are being killed and maimed,” Abu said.

Taraba is one of the states that Buhari will not win except if they are suffering from myopia after the violence unleashed by herdsmen on the people.
I can feel the APC desperation in the air, even some Yoruba Muslims are beginning to change their minds against Buhari sad

But Zombies sha, haha na, atleast even if you're a zombified zombie and absolutely lack sense, I lend you mine for the moment you gonna read this comment.

The truth is, no matter how bad the administration of another government is gonna be, it can never be worse than that of buharis'. Only bubu can beat his record.
he's the GOAT in anything and everything that disassociates itself from progression.

Okay zombies, let's pretend bubu has good intentions for 9ja, but the old man is not feeling fine now, dementia complemented with Alzheimer disease has hugged him tight and are even running their own campaigns in his brain cells.
buhari's campaign has been a whole lot of stress reliever, nigga turned his campaign to a live comedy concert and it's a hit back to back in every state he has featured in.

My dear zombies, even as you use my sense to reason with me on this, I know it isn't easy as you haven't thought right for a long period of time now, but I enjoin y'all to see this isn't about politics or party affiliations, but the raw unapologetic truth that buhari is the very last option if 9ja is really gonna be emancipated.

It was overcrowding that caused the casualties.

The so called attack is PDP stage managed attack against PDP just to.discredit Buharis visit.

Na their way as PMB came.to their territory and took over everywhere

There is not a single state that Apc and buhari campaigned in without violence.. Taraba is a PDP state, that's a fact, they should stop wasting their time. Imagine importing people from Bauchi and Gombe. Lmao
