Suspected thugs attack Ogun ADC governorship candidate, Isiaka, shoot two
The convoy of African Democratic Congress (ADC) governorship candidate for the 2019 elections, Gboyega Nasir Isiaka, was attacked yesterday while on campaign trip to Ibese in Yewa North Local Council of the state.
According to a statement by Isiaka’s Campaign Organisation, two party members in the entourage were seriously injured and in “critical condition” while many others sustained critical injuries “
The statement, signed by the campaign’s Director of Media and Publicity, Bolaji Adeniyi, called on the state Commissioner of Police, Director of Department of State Services (DSS) and other security agencies to leave no stone unturned to ensure that the perpetrators are apprehended and brought to book.
“We are shocked to note that this dastardly act is coming on the heels of a meeting just yesterday between the Inspector-General of Police and the political parties on the need for everyone to maintain peace and shun violence before, during and after the elections.
“It must be noted that Prince Gboyega Nasir Isiaka is a peace-loving man who has conducted the art of politics in a most decorous, decent and refined manner since 2009.
“We are, therefore, amazed at the turn of events where suspected agents of state will arm themselves with guns and other sophisticated weapons to attack a peaceful man going about his issue-based campaigns.
“We hereby call on the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, the State Director of DSS and other security agencies to look into the root of this matter and apprehend the perpetrators.
“More importantly, we request more security cover for our principal, his family members and supporters.”
