Tension in Kogi state as hoodlums burn down SDP party secretariat in Lokoja.
Election violence has begun in Kogi ahead of the governorship election slated by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for November 16, as some irate youths have razed down a party secretariat.
The hoodlums suspected to be political thugs attacked the secretariat of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Lokoja, the capital of the state early on Monday, November 11, burning down the building.
According to The Nation, the affected secretariat of the party is located close to the Lokoja local government secretariat.
It was learnt that the attack was the second in 24 hours as suspected thugs earlier vandalized the doors and windows of the secretariat and also vandalized were banners, posters and some campaign materials in the earlier attack.
The attack is coming days after the party claimed that there were plans against the convoy of its governorship candidate, Natasha Akpoti.
