The Eyitayo Jegede Campaign Organisation on Tuesday alleged that the campaign team of the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr Eyitayo Jegede, was attacked by suspected political thugs at Ipele community in Owo Local Government Area of the state.
The PDP campaign team alleged that the attack was a handiwork of youths suspected to be thugs loyal to the ruling All Progressives Congress.
In a statement titled, ‘Attack on the PDP team in Ipele Owo,’ the organisation said, “Our campaign team was again attacked by members of the APC in Ipele who had blocked access to the palace of the king and the maternal home of the PDP candidate, in a bid to deny him access to both places earlier scheduled to be visited by Mr Eyitayo Jegede.
“Prior to our entry into Ipele, touts and miscreants belonging to the APC had unleashed terror on our members. These miscreants were dispersed by a joint team of police and NSCDC officers.
“We would like to warn the APC and its outgoing government to know very clearly that no single individual has the monopoly of violence. While we are very cautious about the broad implication of promoting violence in this election, we however would not be intimated in our pursuit of victory in the polls.”
