Some angry youth on Saturday attacked and set ablaze a campaign bus branded with President Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign posters at Zololo junction, Bauchi road in Jos, Jos North Local Government area of Plateau state.

It is not clear what led to the attack but a witness, whose car was also torched by the rampaging mob, said another PDP-branded car was also set alight.

The source said the road leading to the area was blocked by the rampaging youth, as they bashed other vehicles plying the route.

Our correspondent gathered that the incident occurred in the presence of members of the Special Taskforce on Jos crisis STF, who could not help stop the action of the youth.

The incident has generated tension within the state capital Plateau state capital as residents rushed home for safety.

The attack occurred as PDP supporters in the state converged at the Hiapang Airport to receive the gubernatorial candidate of the party, Gyang Pwajok, who was returning from Lagos after receiving his flag last Thursday.
