Kogi Election: What Makinde Said After Gunmen Attack In Lokoja

Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has condemned the attack on him and some members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Council in Lokoja, Kogi State.

Naijaparry had reported that the armed men, some of who were masked and dressed in police uniforms, stormed the hotel at about 12.50 pm on Friday and attempted to force their way into the hotel.

They were, however, resisted by security operatives attached to the Oyo State Governor and assisted by some residents in the neighbourhood.

Speaking on the incident, governor Makinde said an investigation would be launched into the incident to know the motive of the attackers and those behind it.

“They attacked us. It happened at the hotel where I and the others were staying in Lokoja. But, we are fine. We called the security agents and they engaged them. They are dispersed right now.

“We were told that they were led by SARS team but we are still trying to find out precisely the identity of the people that came.

“The good thing is that we are ok and safe. We are going about our preparations for the elections tomorrow.

“We will find out who is trying to do this much later. We are preoccupied right now with the things that we have to do to ensure that our agents and party leaders are able to manage the election on behalf of our party tomorrow,” he said.
