The PDP candidate has accused Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s convoy of attacking his convoy during a campaign rally in the state.
The Governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo state, Eyitayo Jegede has accused Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s convoy of attacking the vehicles in his convoy in Oba-Akoko, Akoko South- West Local Government Area of Ondo State.
The Head of Media Research Eyitayo Jegede Campaign Organisation (EJCO) Samuel Fasua said “no fewer than five persons sustained various degrees of injuries” in the attack which occurred during a campaign rally in the zone on Wednesday September 16.
The statement read;
“Today, Wednesday, September 16, 2020, when, quite unexpectedly, the convoy of Ondo State governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, stormed Oba- Akoko in Akoko South-West and started attacking the campaign team of Eyitayo Jegede, the PDP governorship standard-bearer.
“As at now, no fewer than three vehicles in the convoy of Jegede have been badly damaged, while Jegede himself is being held hostage inside the palace of the monarch of Oba-Akoko, the Oloba, by gun-trotting hoodlums suspected to be agents of the governor.
“Curiously, Akeredolu was sighted inside the convoy while the attacks lasted, while police operatives in the location simply vacillated and looked on in the face of the orgies of madness.”
