“They were shooting guns and destroying all banners and posters in my
house at Igede. They destroyed my DSTV dish and cord, all the cartridges
of their guns are with me. They dragged my mother at gunpoint. If
something like this is happening before election, I wonder what will
happen on the day of election.


Political thugs attacked the residence of the immediate past caretaker
Chairman of Irepodun/Ifelodun Local Government, Alhaji Azeez
Awolokun, on Wednesday evening in Igede Ekiti, dragging his 82-year-old
mother at gun point.

Awolokun, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress told reporters on
Thursday that thugs suspected to be loyal to the Peoples Democratic
Party stormed the place at about 5.30 pm came in two Toyota Hilux
vehicles and a branded bus with the portrait of a House of
Representatives candidate.

The former council boss said the thugs did not spare his 82-year-old
mother whom they beat to stupor after they had beaten him and other
members of the household.

Awolokun said the thugs destroyed all the posters and billboards of
candidates, adding that innocent passersby were not spared while the
attack lasted.

“My house was attacked by these thugs and it was God that saved me, my
household and my 82-year-old mother, Madam Omorin Awolokun, from the
thugs who did not even care that she is an old woman.

“They were shooting guns and destroying all banners and posters in my
house at Igede. They destroyed my DSTV dish and cord, all the cartridges
of their guns are with me. They dragged my mother at gunpoint. If
something like this is happening before election, I wonder what will
happen on the day of election.

“In fact, we have an information that some of us have been pencilled
down for arrest before the election day and any moment from now, they
will be picking us one after the other.”

Awolokun revealed that the incident had been reported at Igede Police Station.

When contacted, the Ekiti new Police Public Relations Officer, Mr.
Alberto Adeyemi, confirmed the attack to our correspondent on Thursday.

“The case was reported at Igede Police Station but has been transferred
to the State Criminal Investigation Department for investigation,” he
said.
