Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour reacts to attack on Labour Party HOA candidate Olumide Oworu & his team
Nigerian architect, activist and politician Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour has called on the Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to call his supporters to order.
GRV who is the gubernatorial candidate of the Labour Party for Lagos State in the upcoming 2023 gubernatorial election’s call comes after thugs attacked the Labour Party’s House of Assembly candidate, Olumide Oworu and his team.
The thugs reportedly stabbed some of them and snatched their belongings just as they were about to start their rally this afternoon, March 16, in Surulere.
Olumide Oworu is contesting for the state House of Assembly ticket in Surulere against the APC candidate Desmond Elliot.
Reacting to the attack, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour wrote:
“I strongly condemn the attacks on Olumide and his team. I have repeatedly called on Governor @jidesanwooluto call his supporters to order. I take his silence to mean he approves the violence.
“Make no mistake, we will win on Saturday, and the perpetrators of this violence will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”
