Osinbajo’s Convoy Allegedly Attacked In Ilorin By Hoodlums

Convoy of the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo was allegedly attacked in Ilorin on Thursday during his visit to the state.

The incident reportedly happened in Isale koto area of the metropolis but it was gathered that the VP has left.

When contacted for confirmation, spokesperson of the Nigeria Police, Kwara State command, Ajayi Okesanmi could not confirm the report.

But in a swift reaction, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Abdurahman Abdulrazaq condemned the incident and blamed it on the Peoples Democratic Party.

He said, “In what is a reminiscence Offa robbery, this attack is the height of recklessness on the part of these street urchins who have long been empowered and armed by the discredited dynasty to terrorise our community and anyone who has contrary views to their amala politics.

“Coming just a day after two of our supporters were killed in Ojoku in the convoy of our senatorial candidate Architect Lola Ashiru, this is becoming too much and the madness must stop.

“Going into an election with these thugs clearly on the loose is an existential threat not just to all of us challenging the misrule in our state but to the entire people of the state and their properties.

“We call for immediate arrest and prosecution of these thugs. We also demand investigations to reveal those who gave the orders for these deadly attacks.

“We call for all measures to be taken to ensure safety of lives and properties and sanctity of the ballot box in Kwara and beyond.

“No one’s political interest should be at the expense of human lives and their properties.

“We insist that a political contest is a contest of ideas and no one must be allowed to cow or kill others in the process.”
