Peter Obi, the presidential candidate for the Labour Party, condemned the attack on his supporters during his rally on Saturday in Lagos.
On Saturday, four of Obi’s supporters reportedly suffered injuries while supporting him in Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS) on Lagos Island.
Obi responded by condemning the attack and calling it unjustified.
Obi said “I received reports that 4 members of the Obidient Family were attacked and injured in Lagos ahead of today’s rally. That incident, premeditated or not, is deeply troubling. Such act stands vehemently condemned.
“We cannot continue to tolerate attacks on members of the political opposition, often fuelled by the incendiary rhetorics of political leaders. The new Nigeria that we seek is one founded on peace and justice, and the respect for the rule of law.
“I call on the Lagos State security agencies to fish out those responsible for the attacks.”
