Nigerian actor, Olumide Oworu of Labour Party challenging Desmond Elliot for the Surulere seat in the Lagos state house of assembly has been attacked by political thugs.
The attack took place at Iponri, Surulere.
He took to Twitter to share the experience and wrote:
My team and I were attacked on Tuesday as we attempted to campaign at Iponri, Surulere. A member of my team was injured, but we are thankful the incident didn’t escalate past the level it was. The case has been reported at the Iponri police station.
I am not deterred by the incident. Instead I am more committed to seeing this through. We will pass through the wards in constituency 1 (Akinhanmi/Cole, Adeniran/Ogunsanya, Iponri Housing Estate/Eric Moore, Igbaja/Stadium, Shitta/Ogunlana Drive, Yaba/Ojuelegba). See you outside!
