by Ranti Joseph

Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed’s political campaign team was attacked on Wednesday, February 4 by political thugs in Isapa, in the Ekiti Local Government Area of the state.

Ahmed is the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Kwara State and the attackers were suspected to belong to the Peoples Democratic Party in the state.

Two members of the APC were shot while several others sustained injuries as they scampered for safety. One of the shot victims was said to be in critical condition.

The APC governorship candidate as well as the APC leader in the state, Senator Bukola Saraki, in spite of news the attack, still went ahead to address the rally.

Ahmed described the attack as unfortunate. He however said he was committed to peace and violence-free election despite the attack on his party members.

“We have remained committed to a peaceful campaign everywhere we have gone and we have been to virtually all the communities in this state without any problem. It is quite unfortunate that as we were coming here our advance team was met with resistance by some misguided youths. Some of our people were shot and they have been rushed to the hospital,” he said.

He described the situation as very unfortunate and it was not expected. “We have been carrying out our campaign peacefully and we intend to continue to do so and we would not allow any misguided group to truncate our record of peace in the state,” he added.
