Police in Gombe has confirmed an attack on the campaign office of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for the 2023 governorship election in Gombe State, Jibrin Barde by suspected thugs.

The confirmation was given by the State Commissioner of Police, Oqua Etim on Monday in Gombe.

“You have seen the pictures; yes the attack happened and we will get full details before going public.

“We have started an investigation because the attack happened in the night and it is too early to give details now.

“So just give me a little more time and we will get you the details.”

The commissioner of police appealed to political stakeholders to guard the peace in the state and not create tension while carrying out their political activities in the state.

Etim advised the youth to stay away from engaging in any acts that could breach peace, law and order.

He stated that the police would not tolerate any breach of peace, “as you are aware we recently arrested and paraded some hoodlums causing a disturbance in the metropolis”.

Reports indicate that the campaign billboards within the office complex of Barde’s campaign office were burnt in the early hours of Monday by suspected thugs.
