Report reaching 9News Nigeria from our Akure correspondent has it now that a convoy of Ondo state PDP Governorship Campaign team travelling on convoy were attacked by some hired thugs at Oba-Akoko, Akoko South West Local Government Area in Ondo State.

In confirmation to the incident, Mr. Samuel Fasua, Head of Media Research, Eyitayo Jegede Campaign Organisation (EJCO) has issued a press statement recounting the unfortunate attack on the PDP’s campaign convoy.

He said that no fewer than five persons sustained varying degrees of injuries from the attack which happened today, Wednesday, September 16, 2020.

Mr. Samuel stated that the convoy of Ondo State governor, Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu stormed Oba-Akoko in Akoko South-West and started attacking the campaign team of Mr. Eyitayo Jegede, the PDP governorship flagbearer.

He went ahead to state that curious members of the PDP team sighted governor Akeredolu inside his convoy while the attacks lasted.

He also said that the police operatives in the location simply vacillated and looked on in the face of the orgies of madness as the attacks went on.

The press statement further stated that in the last five days too, there have been series of attacks on PDP supporters in Aiyede-Ogbese community in Akure North LGA, leading to machete and gun attacks and the burning of at least two houses of PDP members.

“These continued attacks on PDP members by Aketi’s political thugs and shock troops, are no doubt threatening the peace of our dear state,” he said in the statement.
