Ondo 2020: Again, Thugs Attack Jegede’s Convoy In Akeredolu’s Town
September 30, 2020
The convoy of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate, Mr. Eyitayo Jegede (SAN) was attacked in Ipele and Owo township in Owo Local Government by heavily armed APC political thugs.
The Spokesman Eyitayo Jegede Campaign Organization, Samuel Fasua said suspected APC thugs for second time attacked Jegede’s campaign train in Owo, the home town of Governor Rotimi Akeedolu.
The Statement read
A PDP member by name, Hon. Amuda Sikiru, was shot in the face and abdomen during our campaign rally in Owo town by the APC thugs. The victim who is still lying unconscious was rushed to the state’s specialist hospital in Akure in the Ambulance attached to the candidate’s convoy.
Also wounded by the APC thugs’ bullet attacks were Messes Taye Akintufede and Seun Ogunlade. They have also been rushed to the hospital.
Besides, some of our campaign vehicles were damaged, as was witnessed in Oba-Akoko community recently.
One of the convoy’s campaign trucks was completely burnt down.
Earlier in the day, the same APC armed hoodlums had blocked the entry point to Ipele community, Jegede’s maternal home, and attempted to turn back the campaign team.
This spate of attacks on our members by the ruling party in the state is threatening the peace of the state, and is apparently intended to cause violence ahead of the October 10 governorship election.
We are calling on the Inspector-General of Police, the human rights community, and other international bodies to come to our rescue in Ondo State.
We want a free and fair election, but the party in power does not.
