PDP, APC Trade Blames As Thugs Attack Jandor’s Convoy

The Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has accused the All Progressives Congress of sending thugs to attack the governorship candidate of PDP, Abdul-Azeez Adediran aka Jandor.

NIGERIACRIME gathered that Jandor’s convoy was attacked in the Coker area of Aguda in the Surulere Local Government Area of the state on Friday.

In a video obtained by NIGERIACRIME, some gun-wielding hoodlums were sighted shooting in the air as a PDP-branded vehicle tried to escape from the scene of the attack.

It was learnt that the gunmen shot at and destroyed some of the campaign vehicles in Jandor’s convoy during the attack and three persons were injured.

The PDP governorship aspirant was in the Surulere LGA alongside some party members for a grassroots engagement with traders and other groups in the area.

However, the PDP has blamed the ruling APC for the attack on its flag bearer’s convoy.

The Lagos PDP spokesperson, Hakeem Amode, said, “The APC-sponsored thugs in Surulere local government of Lagos state unleashed violence on persons and groups of people in the area ahead of the scheduled visitation of the PDP gubernatorial candidate visit to the ward on Thursday and Friday, in continuation of Jandor’s tour of the 245 wards in Lagos State.

“The hoodlums went to the Baale of Ojuoluwa in the Empire area of the LGA to threaten him not to receive the entourage who was billed to pay him a courtesy visit.

“The gates leading to the entire empire area were locked and vehicular movement around the area was disrupted.

“In the same vein, the canopy and chairs arranged at Iponri Housing Estate were violently destroyed by APC killer-thugs who were armed with dangerous weapons including guns and many of our members who were making the arrangements were wounded in the fracas.”

Reacting, the Lagos APC spokesperson, Seye Oladejo, said, “Our attention has been drawn to the terror unleashed on innocent and law-abiding citizens of Lagos state by the gubernatorial candidate of the PDP in the forthcoming national elections, Jide Adediran, otherwise known as Jandor in the course of his campaign in Surulere Local Government.

“The incident left in its wake several injured victims and three people reportedly died.

“We condemn in strong terms the unwarranted and unprovoked resort to violence on the citizens of the state in the name of electioneering campaign.

“In broad daylight, Jandor’s thugs fired guns at their hapless victims who ran for dear lives.”
