Aiyedatiwa cautions against political violence

...Directs security agencies to arrest perpetrators

By Adedotun Ajayi.

The attention of Ondo State Governor, Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa, has been drawn to reports of alleged attacks on some persons and destruction of campaign materials in the wake of the visit of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to the State on Wednesday.

This was contained in a press statement issued by Prince Ebenezer Adeniyan, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor.

The Governor says his administration will not tolerate any form of violence that is capable of threatening the peace and tranquility of the State.

As the Governor has said repeatedly, any political campaign that disturbs the peace in the State is unacceptable and must be met with the decisive actions of law enforcement agencies.

It is pertinent to make it clear that nobody associated with the Governor or the government of Ondo State was involved in any of the reported activities ascribed to “political thugs” during the President’s visit to Owo and Akure.

The Governor has therefore asked law enforcement agencies in the State to arrest and prosecute anyone found to be engaged in such violent activities.

The Governor urges politicians and their followers to ensure that their campaings are issue based, devoid of blackmail, spreading falsehood, inciting the public and intimidating opponents.
