(+VIDEO) Osun 2022: Gunmen Attack Home Of LP Gov’ship Candidate

Ola ‘Kiya, Reporting

Yet-to-be-identified gunmen have attacked the Ilobu residence of the governorship candidate of Labour Party (LP) in Osun State, Yusuf Lasun, in the early hours of Monday.

Stonix News reports that Ilobu is located in Irepodun Local Government Area of the state.

Although noone was reportedly injured or killed, a video footage sighted by Stonix News, revealed holes created by pellets fired by the assailants at the walls and windows.

Speaking to journalists in Osogbo on Monday, Hon Lasun said the attack was targeted at kill him few hours after the governorship debate he participated in on Sunday night on Channels TV.

Lasun accused the Osun State governor, Adegboyega Oyetola’s supporters as the brain behind the attack with evidence.

“At about 1.00a.m this morning, my house was attacked, the evidence was very prominent.

“My building was riddled with bullets. In the last three debates we have had, I have never attacked anybody on how to govern Osun State.

“Unfortunately, this one, to my surprise, it lasted for about 20 minutes.

“We have evidence that supporters of Governor Oyetola actually did it,” he alleged.

Meanwhile, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Oyetola, Ismail Omipidan, while reacting said the antecedents of his principal did not suggest he could do such.

“I doubt very much, the way he is painting the picture…Mr Governor, we all know him if we are to attack anybody, it probably would have been the PDP who are attacking our people and the fact that they have been attacking our people we have never made any attempt to go on reprisal.

“So, why would anyone want to go after Lasun? Lasun is no threat to the ambition of Mr Governor and Mr Governor would never, under any circumstance either remotely or otherwise, attack any citizen of the state, let alone Honourable Lasun Yusuf,” Omipidan noted.
