NEWS FLAKES NG gathers that Governorship flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Ademola Adeleke escaped dual assassination attempts at Ikirun and Ede while continuing his voters’ campaign.
In both cases, gunmen stormed the campaign grounds, shooting sporadically and attacking party members. Political thugs of the APC led both attacks against the PDP flagbearer, some sources have alleged.
It was also gathered that at Ikirun, the bus carrying the flagbearer, the party chairman, Hon Soji Adagunodo and other leaders came under attack while other campaign vehicles were vandalised.
While the campaign at Ikirun was cut short, the candidate faced similar attacks while preparing to attend the rally at his hometown, Ede.
Meanwhile, thousands of party loyalists and voters had gathered waiting for both the candidate and star artiste, Davido.
As the candidate made his way to the rostrum alongside other leaders, gunshots rented the air, dispersing the crowd and leading to multiple injuries.
The PDP candidate was however whisked to safety and he is safe and secured according to the spokesman of the campaign, Olawale Rasheed.
Rasheed who confirmed the incidents said this is a continuation of a series of attacks on PDP and her candidate in the countdown to this week election.
“Our governorship candidate has come under several attacks in the last two weeks. Gunmen attacked the Adeleke country home during the week. Our campaign convoy was breached recently. Thugs ambushed our convoy at Osogbo also in addition to frequent attacks and vandalisation of our billboards.
“All these are signs PDP is winning this election. The ruling party is jittery, hence her resorting to violence. But Osun voters are resolute. Ademola Adeleke is their choice for the governorship. No amount of intimidation can change that reality”, Rasheed, Director of publicity for the Ademola Adeleke Campaign told reporters.
David, the singer who returned from his tour to the United States to support the governorship bid of his uncle, Senator Ademola Adeleke in the upcoming elections in Osun State, has also escaped an attack on his life.
This Davido claimed on his social media pages on Saturday night, September 15.
Both on his Twitter and Instagram pages, Davido shared an image with the caption, ”When you try to shoot at us next time, make sure…”
Prior to this incident, there has also been widespread reports that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC has allegedly frozen accounts of the Adeleke family including that of the Singer Davido and PDP candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke.
The commission is however yet to officially respond to this allegations as at the time of filing this report.
