Political thugs Chase PDP Gubernatorial Candidates Jandor And Funke Akindele Out Of Public Market

Jandor and FUnke Akindele attacked in market

In the final days leading up to the Nigerian polls, parties and factions are starting to show their true colours more.

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Lagos State governorship candidate, Abdul-Azeez Adediran (aka Jandor) has spoken up against recent attacks on his campaign train within the state.

Jandor expressed frustration last Tuesday at a meeting with the Chief Imam at the Ketu Central Mosque. He said hoodlums attacked his convoy in Kosofe, stabbing a security operative, and that his running mate, Funke Akindele was chased out of Kosofe Fruit markets..

He alleged that the Ikosi LCDA Chairperson- Abolanle Bada, brought thugs to intimidate them.

He said, “the local government chairperson came into the market, used her car to block and brought a bunch of thugs to attack us in Kosofe local government, which is very, very sad; it is unbelievable we are not allowed to speak to people freely.”

“Under the new electoral act, we are free to campaign anywhere; this is Lagos, where we should be able to talk to everybody without intimidation or discrimination. That should not even happen,” he added.

In response, the APC spokesperson in Lagos, Seye Oladejo, denied the allegations.

He said, “The PDP people are well known for their wild allegations; if people were attacked, I think it is what the security agencies would be interested in; I don’t think the solution is to take it to the media.”

“As far as we are concerned, we are not in the business of violence; our party is going for victory, so why should we be distracted by people who cannot even put their house in order and want to come into government.”
