He was attacked at the Ramat Square in the State capital by assailants who also vandalized vehicles.
Reports available suggested that hundreds of suspected political thugs were at strategic locations along Maiduguri/Kano road.
Confirming the incident in a rally in Maiduguri, the spokesperson of the party, former Senator Dino Melaye caused the ruling All Progressive Congress for the attack.
