How Donga LG Chairman Abandoned Me After Working For His Victory at Poll - PDP Scribe Crippled By Hoodlums

...Begs PDP Chair, Members For Help 

A chieftain of Peoples Democratic Party PDP in Taraba State, Mr. Terzungwe Akaayue has cried out for assistance from his state Party Chairman, Col. Kefas Agbu (rtd), and members of the party to help him pay for medical surgery of injuries he incurred during an attack on him by hoodlums during 2017 Local Government Elections in the state.

Akaayue while speaking with a journalist in his hospital bed revealed that he was attacked by hoodlums suspected to be members of the opposition party who targeted him as the PDP Ward Coordinator during Local Government Elections in Donga Local Government Area of the state. 

Recalling how he was attacked during the 2017 Local Government Elections in the state, Akaayue said: "I was the PDP Ward Coordinator in Akate, on the day of the Local Government Elections, as I step into the Tormisa Polling Unit to monitor the process of the election as mandated by my party (PDP), some youths were already there while they sight me coming on a motorcycle, they started pointing at me that, see him coming, see him coming."

"They were furious and I noticed that the situation was not peaceful, I asked my boy who carried me on the motorcycle to turn and let's escape from the scene, the hoodlums followed me, the cyclists lost control and we fell and broke my left leg at the spot."

"The hoodlums descended on me heavily, they were about to kill me until one of their leaders whom I once saved from the hands of Herdsmen identified me and asked them to stop the mayhem on me, that was the person that saved my life at the scene."

"Since 2017, I have been battling with the injuries of the attack and the broken leg from one hospital to another, the Doctors here said I need surgery on the leg, according to the senior Doctor, the surgery would cost N1.1 Million."

"I have told the Donga Local Government Chairman, Hon. Nashua Ipeyen who I was actively coordinating the election for, I have also spoken to the Chairman of the PDP in Donga Local Government Area for assistance, none of them have responded to my plight, I want to use this medium to reach the executive governor of Taraba state, our new party Chairman, Kefas Agbu and the entire members of the party, the good people of Nigeria and cooperate organizations to come to my aid."

"I have been from one hospital to the other since 2017 and this I was told by the Doctors that is the only solution to the leg."
