The incident was said to have taken place following earlier rumours that the Independent National Electoral Commission had postponed the February 14, 2015 Presidential election.
The billboard is located on the ever-busy Suleija-Kaduna Expressway at the Federal Housing junction, beside the office of the National Emergency Management Agency in Kubwa.
On it was boldly written, “On February 14, vote Goodluck, vote PDP…The Goodluck Thumb.”
THE PUNCH learnt that the arsonist drove to the billboard, parked his car, brought out a tyre and set it on fire.
But the arsonist, according to officials of NEMA, who pleaded anonymity, came back in the night and on seeing that the fire didn’t do much damage poured petrol on another tyre and set it ablaze.
