Hoodlums have reportedly vandalised the Makurdi campaign office of an All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirant, Terhemba Shija, in Benue State.
The hoodlums torched some property and destroyed 17 of the APC’s flags erected in front of the office premises located in High Level area of Makurdi metropolis.

Shija’s Campaign Director-General, Dr. James Mbachiantim, a former gubernatorial aspirant in the 2019 election in Benue State conducted journalists around the site torched by the hoodlums.
“We are in the political clime and we are politicking. Obviously, anything that happens is for political reasons. We believe strongly that this is the activity of other parties in another political divide. In APC, we believe strongly in peaceful political activities,” he said.
The Benue State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Catherine Anene, was yet to respond to calls put through her telephone to confirm the incident.
