At 1:58am, the 191 emergency centre received a call informing police that a billboard in front of the Andaman Cultural Learning Centre had been destroyed, reports the Bangkok Post. A police team was rushed to the spot.
Investigators said two young men had arrived in two cars, a bronze Toyota and a green Honda cars, both without registration plates. Witnesses said they attacked the billboard then drove off past the Riverside Hotel and disappeared.
A few other greetings billboards were also reported to have been damaged and torn overnight, apparently by people who dislike the prime minister.
