Kogi: Thugs attack SDP chairman, destroys property

Some hooligans presumed to be political thugs attacked the house of the Zonal Chairman, of the Social Democratic Party, Pastor Sunday Atabo, on Saturday and destroyed his property at his home in Aja-Odi Agojoeju, Ofu Local Government Area of Kogi State.

This happened barely three days after some thugs also attacked and disrupted the governorship campaign rally of the SDP in the area, destroying vehicles.

Atebo was in his house when the hooligan attacked his place on Saturday night.

Confirming the incident to our correspondent, the Kogi SDP Director of Communication, Faruk Adejoh-Audu, said Atebo was currently in a coma.

According to him, the hooligans struck around midnight ransacked his house, and destroyed everything.

He said, “They attacked him around midnight and right now he is in a coma. They looted his house and destroyed everything there. Some thugs also attacked our rally three days ago.”

However, several calls and a text message to the Kogi State Police spokesperson, William Ovye, were not responded to as of the time of filing this report.
