Ahmed described the attack as unfortunate. He however said he was committed to peace and violence-free election despite the attack on his party members.
See Excerpts detailed: “We have remained committed to a peaceful campaign everywhere we have gone and we have been to virtually all the communities in this state without any problem.
“It is quite unfortunate that as we were coming here our advance team was met with resistance by some misguided youths. Some of our people were shot and they have been rushed to the hospital.
“One of them was in very critical condition and we don’t know what will happen to him but we are praying that he survives it.
“It is very unfortunate and it was not expected because we have been carrying out our campaign peacefully and we intend to continue to do so and we would not allow any misguided group to truncate our record of peace in the state.”
