Nigeria 2015: Violence escalates as suspected APC supporters raze PDP property in Gombe

Despite the pledge by Nigeria’s two main political parties to violence free general elections, violent acts by their supporters appear to be on the rise.

Two days after campaign buses of the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation were set ablaze in Jos, Plateau State, several property belonging to the Peoples Democratic Party in Gombe State were burnt down on Sunday.

The Gombe incident occurred in Gona Village of Akko Local Government Area.

A resident of the town, Mijinyawa Ahmed, informed PREMIUM TIMES that a convoy of the APC governorship candidate, Inuwa Yahya, instigated the violence in which the PDP office, two vehicles and several shops were burnt down.

“The APC candidate was on his way to Billiri town for a rally and his convoy suddenly stopped in the town and some of the youth in the convoy began to destroy the billboards of Governor Dankwambo and other PDP property,” Mr. Ahmed said.

The spokesperson of Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo, Junaidu Abubakar, confirmed that property belonging to the party and the governor were destroyed.

“In their quest to destroy the billboards of the governor and burn PDP office, peoples shops were also burnt down completely,” Mr. Abubakar said.

He also said the incident caused serious panic in the town because residents thought they were under attack from members of the Boko Haram sect.

“Many people began running into the bush thinking that Boko haram are attacking them,” he said.

However, the secretary of the APC in Gombe State, Umar Mohammed, told PREMIUM TIMES that the attack was instigated by PDP members

“We were on our way to Billiri to receive decampees and as usual advanced party were asked to move ahead of the candidate’s convoy,” he said.

“PDP members then blocked the road in Gona and refused to allow our members passage which led to a fight between them.

“One of our members was even seriously wounded with a knife and is presently in hospital receiving treatment.”

He said even after the programme in Billiri, words reached the APC that PDP supporters in Gona were armed and ready to ambush them on their way to Gombe.

“When we heard what happened, we had to divert through Deba to go back to Gombe,” he said.

The APC secretary also said the residence of the governorship candidate was attacked three days ago by hoodlums suspected to be PDP supporters.

“They destroyed about five vehicles and injured one of his police security detail who is still receiving treatment,” he said.

When contacted, the spokesperson of the Nigerian Police in Gombe, Fwaje Atajiri, said the police command is not aware of any of the incidents.

Apart from the Jos and Gombe incidents, cases of politically motivated attacks have also been reported in other states.

Some supporters of the APC in Rivers State were shot last week on their way to attend their party’s presidential campaign flag-off in Port Harcourt.

Also, an office belonging to the APC in Okrika, the hometown of Nigeria’s first lady, Patience Jonathan, in Rivers State was attacked with dynamites on Sunday.

    N 2001 at an Islamic seminar in Kaduna, Buhari was given an opportunity to choose between Nigeria’s secularism and fundamentalist Islam, this is what he said; “I will continue to show openly and inside me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping all over Nigeria”, he then added that; “God willing, we will not stop the agitation for the total implementation of the Sharia in the country”.Buhari an advocate of sharia was chosen to address that seminar in Kaduna because of his advocacy and he did not disappoint because he is one of the boardroom voices of Sharia.

    To those who campaigned for Buhari please read the above and I will like to have your comments. Buhari is not but Boko Haram in totality. Tinubu is Jihad, Aregbesola is Jihad, Fashola does not know where he belongs he only accepted to be a member because he needed the governship tickect that time. Lai Mohammed, is also full member of terrorist. Amechi does not have identity that is his problem. Okuku General does not deserved any respect imagine postrating to the Jihad man that outed him unceremoniously from the state house. Akande lacked what it takes to be a Yoruba leader. God Abraham Adesanya don t sleep in heaven, Cheif Obafemi Awolowo, Sir Adekunle Ajasin, Chief SL Akintola, Adegbenro, Fanikayode, Sir Adesoji Aderemi, General Adekunle Fajuyi, PAN africa Dr, Azikwe, Chief Gani Fawehimi the Senior Advocate of the Masses, Gneral Odemumega Ojukwu, Sir Hamadu Bello, plse arise to our situations you are our anchestors.

      We need CHANGE, yes, but it must come by the ballot box, and peacefully too.

      • Tunsj

        I couldn’t agree more.

      • Gideon Orkar

        When they get into full flow, it won’t be if you are APC or PDP. It will be are you a Muslim or Christian? That is what they did in 2011 and what they will do again.

        Shame, shame, shame to the perpetuators of violence

  • Thomas

    With the increase in violence, jonathan might postpone the election which will invariably thwart our yearn for change. Jonathan visited Babangida recently and he got lessons on how to prevent the CHANGE.

      • Oluwatimilehin Akinniyi

        Typical Yoruba; Stay hidden and spill vile instead of asking what you can do to save your country from the scourge of terrorism. But then again, you’re APC…

        • Maria

          • Oluwatimilehin Akinniyi

            I am, yes! And I pray for unity in my country. But the point is you’re a scum of the earth!!

          • Maria

            Unity? Anyone preaching unity will never use such foul tribalism language you used…”Typical Yoruba;”. You are nothing but a tribal bigot masquerading with yoruba name.

          • Oluwatimilehin Akinniyi

            …sounds like you came up with the “Change” theme for your party by the way. How’s the feeling nowadays?

  • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

    The fingerprints of the APC is smearing Nigeria’s political landscape with blood,chaos and destruction as promised by Buhari the advocate of “Baboons and dogs soaking in blood” and Tinubu the advocate of “rig and roast” !
    The APC/ Boko-haram jihadist coalition is creating bloody mayhem as expected !

  • Umar Dendi

    I am not condoning violence, but if you have been living in fear since the dawn of a certain govt, if you’ve seen human lives, the lives of you neighbors and friends ravaged then you will probably resort to anything to see change! for many in these crisis ridden areas GEJ is synonymous with violence and restlessness, they feel like to have peace he simply has to go.
    When they see someone from their side playing Judas, emotions run high and we have what we have!
    Its sad that Nija has come to this! I never thought a government, any Nigerian govt would allow itself to fall into this spot. Even the khaki wearing baboons knew different!!

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      Another apologist for violence and death !!
      Whoever protects or supports violence and blood is a killer !!

        Me thought you are Incommunicado!
        If you are incapable of reading or comprehending someone’s post then you should at least have the decency to NOT COMMENT!
        on the other hand you can wait for your boss to send you to that school-for-ex-militants and then Maybe, just maybe you might get the wits to understand what folks are saying

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      Yes !! Change of blood and evil….the leaders of the APC are already poised to unleash death and horror on innocent Nigerians.For the APC,the mantra is “VOTE FOR THE APC OR GET KILLED BY OUR THUGS”

      • Alcindo Satori

        …and we that believe in “decency of life” should make it a point to vote GEJ come February. Spread the word, let people know the truth — the truth shall always prevail!

            Which is better, continue to hold down PIB on account of your false population or we go our ways?

          • Wähala

            The PIB is a fraud Diezani drafted to accrue more powers to herself. It will be amended and passed after we toss this corrupt Govt. out of power… kapisch?

            Nonsense–the American dream is highly welcome–you descendants of Oodua should go your way–we want out of the idiotic Lugard fraudulent entity-and another nonsense to the American dream–nonsense again

          • Wähala

            Yeah, right!
            If wishes were to come true indeed. Dumbo and the PDP are orchestrating these violence including the upsurge in Boko Haram attacks in futile efforts to cancel or postpone the general elections. I can show you where I articulated this move on Sahara Reporter 2yrs ago. But, Nigerians are ready and can’t wait to toss the thief from Otuoke back into his animal cage in the zoo where he belongs as a zoologist. Animals cannot continue to mix and mingle with humans.

        • Wahala’s Owner

          I’m guessing, ‘Dumbo” refers to your father, and your all your family members.

          But your lack of character is the reason you cannot buy yourself a ticket to return back home.

          • Wähala

            What are you on to with odeku and cracks? You make no sense whatsoever! I’ve told you, coming home on a weekly basis is easy as sending your mother on the streets of Europe for longer hours… you don’t want that, do you? Your life depends on the crumbs I toss to her that she pays your rent with. Get a life, the dead in Europe are better than you in 3rd. World because at least they rest in peace… without generator noise! Anu mpam!!

      • Warri Boy

        O boy shut up!..and shut up permanently. Something dey do you? Dokubo only reacted to the threats by Buhari. Did you expect him to keep quiet while the certificateless clowns roves around threatening people as though we are his subjects? You better advise yourself. Nonsense!

        This is how you people misled the North to believing they can harass people by threats and bombs and get away with it. are you not a man? No be your mates carry sticks for that picture so? Gen Adisa who knelt down crying and begging bcos he was afraid of bullet is long dead. He still died despite crying and begging a Major Mustapha or fellow Gen Abacha. Wouldn’t it have been better for him to stand on his feet, look at his tormentors in the face and spit into it? Cowards die many times…that’s what Shakespeare told us. But we shall meet at Phillipi

    • mk

      Oleku you are right..but what did PDP say to ur ignorance:
      A do or die affair
      Dividing the country
      3 states wouldn’t vote
      We MOST rule for the next 50yrs
      If jona fails 2015 open war with no mercy,but killings
      Pls reserve your comments to ursef

    APC was asked to present a qualified candidate to represent them but instead they dusted out an old illiterate man, when asked to present his certificate he presented an affidavit, when asked to bring real certificate they unleash violence. Allah.

You only saw the tail end of OBJ’s aborted 3rd term bid, Musa’s corpse arriving from Arabia, and hear what APC is telling you about GEJ.

        Wait, watch and grow up before you judge.

  • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

    The APC marching orders to kill and destroy have already been issued with military alacrity hence…..do not forget that the General from Daura is in command

  • emmanuel

    The Fulanis are suspecting they would not win with Buhari and they want to set the stage for mikitary takeover.

    2016 is high stake and non- negotiable.

    I bet the APC office and the shooting at delegates in River state are ploys to make it look like the PDP is responsible.

    Head or tail, the Fulani North want to take the presidency.

    My question, can they run a government for now without oil? The future is now.

    We are awaiting the final move by the Fulanis to enable us go.

    WHY we need DISINTEGRATION like yesterday
    ————————————————————
    1. In 1991 a popular German evangelist called Reinhard Bonke preached successfully in Kaduna where potential suicide bombers got born again and accepted light and left darkness. Reinhard Bonke then left KD and headed for nearby Kano to hold a crusade…but immediately a prayer meeting was held at the same mosque that was bombed weeks ago and the decision was taken by the Imams to resist Reinhard’s mission. There were riots in Kano and over 11 persons died. The German born Reinhard practically fled for his life and would not been given VISA to enter Nigeria for 9 yrs that the Northen Presidents were in power. Each time he applied, he was denied…until OBJ came into power in 1999.

    Here was a man denied Visa on the basis of religion….at least he could have been given Visa and restricted to the South, East or West rather than a total ban. This is the Nigeria we call ‘our’ country.

    2. Agbani Darego won miss world in 2001. The organisers thought we are a country and scheduled the next miss world for Nigeria. But while contestants had arrived, some Imams held a meeting again…and riots broke out in Abuja and Kano…and as usual people were killed. How then are we a country?

    Pakistan and India knew they would not survive as one. They took the honourable path and both countries have prospered in their own way. Why can’t Nigeria do the same? Why can’t we break up into our real countries where all students will be admitted to schools with the same cut off marks? ….in any case, any dunce who is meant to score just 2 marks to get admission where the ideal marks is 135, will certainly be a veritable agent for suicide bombing bcos he/she lacks the IQ to even appreciate the essence of living. Break up Nigeria and make Mohammed Buhari the president of Islamic Republic of Northern Nigeria so we can have peace. Enuf blood already wasted.

          Do the SS enter tertiary institutions with 2/200 grade? Your arid desert and people are cursed and can never be developed.

          If we seperate, no mai guard job, refuse cart movers, and no money for your gobernors again.

          Then we would see how you can feed four wives which is one of your greatest burden – marrying four wives among muslims is prevalent in Fulani Nigeria and Afghanistan (backward people).

        • Otile

          No, they have nothing to gain from starving to death, they wouldn’t do it. They are all too eager to strap explosives and die for Allah, or kill other people to sleep with good virgins in aljinat. That’s the difference, bro.

    What i am seeing is not a military incursion into the body polity but the poor will take on
    the rich. It is a revolution i am seeing in no distant future in Nigeria. A man of destiny
    will take over the reins of governance and most corrupt people who’ve been parading
    themselves and masquerading as Nigerian leaders, if they are not dead, will be jailed.

    Between now and January, the country (Nigeria) will witness the worst era of bloodshed
    in its history. And if at all there will be elections in Nigeria, the seat of president is not vacant,
    that means if at all there is going to be a presidential election, it will be inconclusive just like
    (the June 12) that we had during the time of MKO Abiola.

    God told me that they are going to rig the election and this will cause an upheaval.
    The results of the 2015 election will not be declared. And if the result is declared,
    the winners of the election will not govern. Whether they call themselves APC or codeine,

      @ No comment,

      I pity Yoruba Christians. They heard and read this warning in 2012.
      But they are heedless. They remain are un-armed and defenceless,
      even though they are in trouble as the targets of this Islamic Jihad.

      They assume that Boko Haram is just a Hausa/Fulani murder machine.
      They do not fully understand the concept of global jihad underway.

      Yoruba Christians do not connect the dots that since Yoruba Muslims
      are active cells in Al Qaeda, those cells are invariably allied to Boko Haram
      – whose stated aim is the ‘mass killings of all Christians’.

  • Kolawole

    The world mourns with France. From Germany to Israel to Spain etc because 12 persons were killed by Islamic terrorist. But no body is mourning with Nigeria even when about 2,000 were killed around Baga and environs on Friday. Saturday & today have seen further bombings and not even one single President is sending any messages of comfort. Why? Is it bcos they know that Buhari threatened blood soaked streets? Or is it bcos they don’t consider us to be a country?
