The campaign office of the Labour Party gubernatorial candidate in Oyo State Otunba Alao Akala was on Wednesday night attacked by hoodlums believed to be sponsored by political opponents of the former governor.
The office which was located at Mokola Area was said to have been stormed by scores of people with dangerous weapons trying to gain entry into the office.
The security man who raised the alarm was pursued as they fire several gunshots into the air to scare residents of the area or anybody who might want to resist them. Though they were unable to gain entrance into the office, the glass at the main entrance was damage.
The security man on duty, simply identified as Mr. Clement while narrating his ordeal said “they came with bikes and fire several short in the air, I raised alarm and they pursued me in attempt to killed me but I manage to escape”
The Spokesperson for the former governor Barr Abraham Ojo while confirming the incident said, the attack was part of the antics of the political opponents who are jittery of the soaring image of Otunba Akala.
“Their mission was to vandalize the property and attack supporters of Otunba Alao akala as they have been doing in some days back. Adding that, Akala will not be intimidated by their treat.”
