Daily Trust gathered that Pwajok was first pelted by youth of Anguwan Rogo, a predominantly Hausa community, on Sunday evening and later booed and chased out from Tudun Wada, a predominantly Christian community, where he had gone to observe a football match on the same day.A witness said the youths in Anguwan Rogo had gathered to watch the final match of a football competition sponsored by the GNS campaign at the Anguwan Rogo Secondary School playing ground, when Muhammad Adam, popularly known as ‘Dan London’, a member of the Pwajok campaign team chanted the slogan ‘PDP.’A youth leader in the community said the slogan had provoked the youths who started screaming ‘bama so’ meaning we don’t want while others booed and threw stones at the entourage.Some of the youth who spoke with our correspondent on conditions of anonymity said “what do they take us for? The same Pwajok served as director of research and documentation as well as Chief of Staff to Governor Jang when our communities were marginalised. Did he see how bad the road to Anguwan Rogo is before coming?”However, the chairman of Anguwan Rogo Youths Development Association, Alhaji Yawale Muhammad, described the incident as unfortunate and called on the youths to rather use their PVCs to vote for candidates of their choice.A source within the PDP executives in Jos North LGA confirmed that they had been pelted, saying a similar scenario had taken place in Tudun Wada. He said two of the campaign vehicles had their glasses smashed but said no one was injured in the two attacks.Losam Yohanna, a youth leader in Tudun Wada, said “even before they came, our youths brought out brooms and we started sweeping the place. He brought some food items and most of the community rejected it.”
