The convoy of Nigeria’s vice president, Yemi Osinbajo, was allegedly attacked by suspected thugs in Ilorin, the capital of Kwara state on Thursday, February 21, resulting in gun-shots and many sustaining various degrees of injury.

It was learnt that the incident happened at the Isale-Koko area of Ilorin

The Nation reports that the APC governorship candidate in the state, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, condemned the alleged attack and described it as “the brazen attack today in Ilorin on the convoy of the Vice President Prof Yemi Osinbajo by armed PDP thugs.

“The vice president was at Isale Aluko suburb of Ilorin on a door-to-door campaign when some dare-devil gunmen opened fire at his convoy which included thousands of APC members and supporters.

“In what is a reminiscence of the Offa robbery, this attack is the height of recklessness on the part of these street urchins who have long been empowered and armed by the discredited dynasty to terrorise our community and anyone who has contrary views to their amala politics.

“Coming just a day after two of our supporters were killed in Ojoku in the convoy of our senatorial candidate Architect Lola Ashiru, this is becoming too much and the madness must stop.

“Going into an election with these thugs clearly on the loose is an existential threat not just to all of us challenging the misrule in our state but to the entire people of the state and their properties.

“We call for immediate arrest and prosecution of these thugs. We also demand investigations to reveal those who gave the orders for these deadly attacks.

“We call for all measures to be taken to ensure safety of lives and properties and sanctity of the ballot box in Kwara and beyond.

“No one’s political interest should be at the expense of human lives and their properties.”

The incident was confirmed by the state command of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF), through its spokesperson, DSP Ajayi Okasanmi.

He, however, said Osinbajo was at the at the scene where the incident occurred.

Legit.ng earlier reported that no fewer than five persons were reportedly killed on Thursday, February 21, at Bebeji local government area of Kano state when supporters of former governor of the state, Senator Rabi’u Kwankwaso, and the former House committee chairman on appropriation, Alhaji Abdulmumuni Jibrin Kofa engaged in a bloody clash.
