The Governorship applicant of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo state, Eyitayo Jegede has blamed Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s caravan for attacking the vehicles in his guard 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.”
