Following an attack on the campaign team of the gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Oyo state, Engr Seyi Makinde, in Ojoo on Thursday evening, the PDP candidate has warned the All Progressives Congress to stop instigating attack on his team and party.
Makinde made this known on Friday morning in a statement issued and signed by the Director Communication and Strategy of Makinde 2019 campaign organisation, Prince Dotun Oyelade.
Two persons; a woman and boy was shot on Thursday evening when the PDP campaign team arrived Ojoo for its campaign and some members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) carrying posters of APC guber candidate, Chief Adebayo Adelabu’ unleashed attack on the PDP team.
The attack abruptly ended the campaign as members of the PDP and supporters scampered for safety.
Makinde said that while it was natural for the APC candidate to be anxious at the turn of events, he should not revert to self help especially where there was no provocation.
We are now calling on all the security agencies in the state to investigate the attack and punish those who physically carried out the attack. Makinde said that his team will be of immense assistance to the police in identifying the culprits
He equally implored major stakeholders to call APC leadership to order in the state as the elections draw nearer.
