“When I reached the house, I saw that many things were destroyed. Our grandma was attacked, and the security man was also attacked. They burnt my brother’s car and destroyed many things in the house.

“Neighbours said they heard gunshots. When I got there, I saw some bullet cartridges in the compound,” Sodipe said.

Speaking from his hideout, Agboola expressed shock over the attack and lamented that properties worth millions were destroyed, while his mother was also wounded in the attack.

He urged the police and other security agencies in the country to ensure that the attackers are brought to book.

Agboola said, “I am very sad about this attack on my house. Why on earth will the evil people attack me because of my support for a party? My mother was beaten. A car parked in the compound was destroyed too, and my security guard was wounded.

“My house was ransacked and I learnt they threatened to deal with me when they get hold of me.”

Efforts to get the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, were not successful as of the time this report was filed.
