The Lagos State Police Command has stated it has commenced investigations into the attack on the campaign train of the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olajide Adediran, popularly known as Jandor.
VANTAGE NEWS reports that the campaign train was attacked by thugs who were reportedly armed with guns and other weapons at the Ikoga Junction, in the Badagry Local Government Area of the state.
In a statement on Sunday, the state Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Hakeem Amode, alleged that those behind the attack were sponsored by the All Progressives Congress.
Reacting, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, in a tweet on Monday, said it was important to clarify that the party notified the Divisional Police Officer in Badagry, of the time and locations of their visits.
He said, “Adequate security was provided. However, the campaign train made an unscheduled visit to a different and undisclosed location on their way back without commensurate notification to the police.
“Furthermore, the command is awaiting from the victims a complaint/statement that would assist in the ongoing investigation. The assurance is hereby given that no stone will be left unturned to arrest and prosecute the attackers.”
