Ekiti 2022: Oni condemns attack on PDP secretariat
Segun Oni, a PDP aspirant in the party’s January 26 gubernatorial primary, has condemned the attack on the state party secretariat, describing it as “condemnable and barbaric.”
Mr Oni, in a statement he personally signed and made available to journalists in Ado-Ekiti on Thursday, slammed the attack.
“It is a barbaric and heartless attack purposely directed at the party secretariat. The attackers need to be told that such will never stop the party from attaining victory in the June 18 governorship election,” the PDP chieftain stated.
Mr Oni, a former Ekiti governor, called for urgent steps to ensure adequate security to safeguard lives and property during the electioneering.
He added that the people of Ekiti were on the move with the PDP in their readiness to snatch victory in the forthcoming election.
“The vandalism of the secretariat was an action taken too far; partakers of this action should be brought to book,” explained Mr Oni.
However, the spokesman for the police command in Ekiti Sunday Abutu said he had yet to receive any information on the alleged attack.
“Anytime the command receives the informational and confirms the attack, I will, on behalf of the commissioner of police, Mr Babatunde Mobayo, address the press,” Mr Abutu explained.
