Hoodlums Vandalise Jimoh Ibrahim’s Campaign Office in Ondo


By James Sowole in Akure

The newly opened campaign office of the factional governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State, Dr. Jimoh Ibrahim, was the late Saturday attacked by political thugs.

The office, which was opened last week, is located along Oyemekun Road, Akure, the state capital.

When THISDAY visited the office, all the PDP flags representing the 18 local government areas of the state and the country were pulled down.

Also, a big banner bearing the picture of the fictional PDP candidate was pulled off the wall of the one-storey office.

The Director of Publicity of Jimoh Ibrahim Campaign, Sola Akinuli, condemned the attack, describing it as unfortunate.

He said: “It was much unexpected from any quarter that such a barbaric act should rear its head in 2016 when we thought all acts of hooliganism have been thrown into dustbin.

“We are, therefore, calling on security agencies to take over the matter in order to forestall future occurrences. On peace we stand and that we plead from all quarters.”

Some people who saw the vandalism of the office also condemned the act expressing worries that the act may signal the commencement of thuggery in the state as political parties start campaign for the election.
