Thugs Attack Supporters Of Obi In Lagos

THUGS on Saturday unleashed terror on some supporters of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, with machetes and other weapons as the standard bearer holds his final campaign rally in Lagos.

Channels Television reports that the supporters were attacked with machetes and other objects as they made their way to Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS) where the rally is to be held.

Medical personnel at TBS had their hands full as they attended to the injured.

Videos and pictures shared on social media also showed some individuals believed to be Obi’s supporters with bruises, as well as vandalised buses and cars purportedly deployed to transport supporters for the various events to be held by the party.

One of the other major parties in the state and its presidential candidate was blamed for the attacks.

An activist and Obi supporter, Rinu Oduala, said, “‘Obidients are bullies’. But one party is currently trying to prevent LP rally in Lagos by sponsoring attacks with thugs armed with machetes and guns. The wickedness of our ‘intellectuals and celebrities’ isn’t talked about enough.”

Another tweep, @anthonyabakporo, said it was sad to see that some thugs were attacking Obidients.

“They just did at Jakande but we were able to get them to TBS, They are receiving treatment. Please signal us if you experience any difficulties. Don’t let notting (sic) stop you! Be here!” he added.
