Several social media users have been posting videos showing destroyed vehicles and assaulted Labour Party campaign supporters in Lagos. Reacting to this the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi fumed at this incident that happened in Lagos.
Obi used his official Twitter account to call on the security agencies to fish out those that are behind these attacks, “I received reports that 4 members of the Obidient Family were attacked and injured in Lagos ahead of today’s rally. That incident, premeditated or not, is deeply troubling. Such act stands vehemently condemned. We cannot continue to tolerate attacks on members of the political opposition, often fuelled by the incendiary rhetorics of political leaders. The new Nigeria that we seek is one founded on peace and justice, and the respect for the rule of law. I call on the Lagos State security agencies to fish out those responsible for the attacks.”
Some minutes after this reaction post he also posted that he is present at the Labour Party Lagos campaign venue TBS. “I’ve just arrived at the Global Village of TBS. What a crowd! What a reception! Gbosa for the Obidients!”, he tweeted
