The Presidential Candidate of the labour Party, Peter Gregory Obi, has reacted to reports of attacks on his #Obidient supporters in some areas of Lagos today.
Bellnewsonline.com gathered that several supporters of Obi came out in thousands for a road show in the TBS area of the state. However, several supporters have complained on social media of being attacked by Thugs allegedly loyal to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Reacting to the development, Obi called on Security agencies to ensure the safety of Nigerians exercising their civic rights.
“As we go into the final stretch for the 2023 elections, I call on all Nigerians regardless of political affiliation or tendency, to eschew violence. I condemn any form of violence and political thuggery; and especially the incessant attacks on my #Obidient supporters.”
“I call on the security forces nationwide to protect those exercising their fundamental rights of free speech and assembly. Our civic space must not shrink further.”, he tweeted on Saturday afternoon.

They allegedly came with matchetes, guns & all manner of weapons intimidating and attacking people & made away with their belongings.
