Hoodlums attack community, destroy radio station

Hoodlums suspected to be thugs of some politicians have attacked a community, Lafiyawo in Gombe State, destroying a private radio station, Progress FM, located along Gombe Airport Road.

Apart from the radio station, eight shops were burnt down in the community while two vehicles were also set ablaze in  Jekadafari Quarters of the state capital.

Gombe State Police Commissioner (CP) Mr Bello Makwashi, on Sunday confirmed the incident.

The command’s spokesperson, Mary Malum, said investigation into the attack which occurred on Saturday evening was still ongoing.

A resident of the community, Malam Nuhu Usman said that the attackers started stoning them on their way back from airport before setting eight shops ablaze.

According to him, many people sustained various degrees of injury, while one of is currently hospitalised.

Meanwhile, Managing Director of the radio station, Alhaji Ibrahim Biu, has alleged that the attack was caused by some thugs attached to Gov. Ibrahim Dankwambo.

“Yesterday evening, thugs following the governor’s convoy from the airport attacked our office with weapons.

“They were throwing stones and making attempts to gain entrance into the compound.

“So I quickly called the commissioner of police and the director of State Security Service who responded swiftly.

“In the attack, one of our security men was wounded. It was very scary but we thank the security for their swift response,” he said.

However, Director of Media of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Council in the state, Mr Dahiru Kera said the thugs that attacked the community and the radio station were not from PDP.

Kera said the thugs had initially attacked the governor’s convoy on his way from the airport, adding that two cars in the entourage were burnt.

He attributed the development to why the governor cancelled a rally organised to welcome him back to the state.
