Hoodlums have allegedly attacked the All Progressives Congress (APC) secretariat in Zamfara state, destroying property worth millions of naira.

Speaking with journalists on Wednesday in Gusau, Abdullahi Tsafe, chairman of the security committee of the party, said the attacks were carried out on Monday and Tuesday.

Tsafe, a retired commissioner of police, said apart from the secretariat at Gusau, the central zonal office of the party and other offices across the state were also attacked.

He decried the action and said that the party had since alerted the police over the matter.

“I believe they must have acted on it by now. If our members reacted to that it would create problem, but APC as law abiding political party, we always caution our members to be law abiding and shun political violence,” he said.

The police spokesman in Zamfara, Muhammad Shehu, confirmed the incident.

Shehu said the state Commissioner of Police, Usman Nagogo, had already visited the scenes of the incident.

“The command has already commenced investigation on the matter and promised to deal with any body found wanting on the matter,” he added.

The command’s spokesman added that in spite of the efforts of the police to maintain law and order in the state some people were hell-bent on causing trouble in the state.
