Jimi Agbaje, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos State, on Saturday, alleged that his campaign billboards were vandalised overnight.
Agbaje took to his verified Twitter handle to say: “Early this morning, our boards were vandalized and removed just as campaign commenced. Some of our deployment staff were also threatened with violence and warned to desist.”
“Fellow Lagosians, we must stand against this sort of tyranny. This is no ordinary election. This is a fight for freedom. A fight for Democracy. A fight for Lagos. We will not be silent and we will not be oppressed or suppressed into a corner. This time around, Democracy must win.”
Yemisi Busari, his running mate, also shared the same video and said, “It has come to our notice that some of our campaign boards that were stationed on third mainland bridge were destroyed overnight. I must say this is very disappointing to see. This is not Freedom. This is not Democracy. This is not the Lagos the people want to identify with.”
