Breaking! Peter Obi Reacts To Attack Against Labour Party Supporters In Lagos



The presidential candidate of the Labour Party(LP), Peter Obi, has condemned the attack on supporters of his party in Lagos State.

CityNews Nigeria earlier reports that hoodlums in Lagos state attacked supporters said to be on their way to Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS) — the venue of the party’s presidential campaign rally.

The hoodlums were said to have targeted the supporters to prevent them from attending the rally.

Some of the supporters had their clothing torn to shreds, while others sustained various degrees of injuries during the incident.

Reacting to the development, the former Anambra governor via his verified Twitter handle on Saturday vehemently condemned the attack, saying that such political opposition attacks will not be tolerated.

He also called on the Lagos State security agencies to fish out those behind the attacks, adding that the new Nigeria sought out for, is one that will be founded on peace and justice.

He tweeted: “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. -PO”
