APC thugs attack our candidate in Lagos, security agencies must step up—- Spokesperson

APC thugs attack our candidate in Lagos, security agencies must step up—- Spokesperson
The Labour Party (LP) has alleged that political thugs suspected to be working for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state has allegedly attacked its House of Assembly Candidate in Surulere Constituency I, Olumide Oworu.

LP’s Publicity Secretary, Mrs Olubunmi Odesanya in a statement in Lagis, said: “Labour Party (LP) in Lagos is seriously grieved about the unchecked violence perpetuated against candidates, members and supporters of our party in these few days leading to the March 18 Governorship  and State House of Assembly Elections.

“Honourable Olumide Oworu, a candidate, a popular young actor, aka Tari of The Johnsons fame, who is contesting against APC’s Desmond Elliot was attacked around Bode Thomas Street Junction Surulere as he was about to kick off a Campaign Rally this afternoon.

“The APC villains attacked them at the venue, beat up his supporters, robbed people and generally caused pandemonium in the neighbourhood.  Some team members were savagely harmed and are receiving medical attention.”

Odesanya said that APC could not win Lagos, hence the its resort to violence and attacks on the opposition parties.

“Labour Party hereby calls Governor Sanwoolu to call his stalwarts to order. APC is sowing violence in heaps and the harvest is  spelling doom  for APC.

“We wonder how he is able look the other way and be unperturbed by the mayhem caused day after day in the state.  APC with all its thuggery is handing over victory to our candidate, Olumide.

“It is apparent that the impending defeat by LP unnerves APC. Having seen the followership and popularity of the Labour Party in the last Presidential election, they are afraid of all Labour Party’s candidates.

“APC is failing to get electorates to their side and have been running from pillar to post, employing the most underhand and appalling means possible,” Odesanya said.

According to her, Labour Party is putting the Nigeria Police, all Security agencies, Human and Civil Rights agencies, International Election Observers and Monitoring Teams on red alert with a view to curb the excesses of APC.

“Labour Party is as focused as ever on achieving outstanding victory at the polls from top to bottom, Odesanya added.
