The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Ondo State, Eyitayo Jegede, was on Wednesday attacked at Oba Akoko, with 10 of his campaign vehicles brutally vandalized.

Jegede was at the palace of Oba of Akoko, Oba Nathaniel Adegoroye, the traditional ruler of the town, where he had gone to pay homage as part of his campaign visits to the town when the attackers descended on his campaign team.

Some of his supporters sustained varying degrees of injuries and have been taken to the near hospital.

Rotimi Akeredolu who himself was passing by the area at the time.

An eyewitness said neither Akeredolu nor the police operatives in the governor’s convoy did anything to stop the attackers.

“Everybody was taken by surprise. Aketi people were passing before they stopped abruptly, and before you say Jack, these masked men rushed down and started breaking Jegede’s vehicles.

“We had to run for safety and by the time we ran one vehicle was in flame while about 8 others had their windscreens, side glasses and rear screen smashed,” the eyewitness added.

The PDP had suffered series of attacks in the state in recent times. The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) was allegedly accused of vandalizing Jegede’s billboards in some parts of the state in recent times.
