The Labour Party (LP) governorship candidate in Lagos State, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has reacted to the attack on the House of Assembly candidate, Olumide Oworu.
Naija News reported that the 28-year-old actor cum politician narrowly escaped unhurt when some unidentified hoodlums suspected to be political thugs reportedly attacked his team during a campaign walk of the LP on Tuesday, March 14th, 2023 in the Surulere area of the state.
Speaking about the incident, the 28-year-old via his verified Twitter handle disclosed that some members of his team sustained an injury during the attack.
He further assured his supporters that he will not be deterred, but rather will be more committed to seeing through the campaign.
However, some LP supporters claimed that the miscreants were allegedly sponsored by APC in the state.
Reacting via his Twitter page, Rhodes-Vivour condemns the attack and urged the state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu to call his supporters to order.
According to him, Sanwo-Olu’s silence over the attack could mean approval of the violence.
The LP candidate added that the perpetrators of the violence will be prosecuted to when elected as governor on Saturday.
He wrote: “I strongly condemn the attacks on Olumide and his team. I have repeatedly called on Governor
@jidesanwoolu to call his supporters to order. I take his silence to mean he approves the violence.
“Make no mistake, we will win on Saturday, and the perpetrators of this violence will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”
