Nigerian cry out over political thugs attack

From John Silas Lagos

The Security operatives have been enjoined to provide protection for citizens against political thugs attacks. 

A Nigerian  Mr Tajudeen Olatunji, who recently escaped kidnap attempt at Seme border  stated this  while narrating his experience to newsmen. 

According to Mr Olatunji ” good  samaritans  rescued him from  the recent attack unleashed on him by political thugs.” 

Mr Olatunji, disclosed that ” political thugs unleashed attack on him at Seme Border,  while returning to Cotonou on June 29th, 2021. He was returning after  been  vaccinated against  Covid-19 since  access to public  health care in the Republic of Benin is not guaranteed. ” 

He narrated that ” his assailants, suspected political hoodlums used face masks and tinted glass vehicles. It is  quite unfortunate that insecurity in the country is getting worst.” 

Olatunji added that”since 2015 that he supported and campaigned for a candidate of the PDP  and the candidate won the seat for the House of Representative, his family and business  had been under  threat by the ruling political elite party”. 

In his words ” I proceeded on exile since 2017  because of attacks of political thugs and constant APC party harassment of opponents”. 

He further noted that one of those close shave encounters was the attack  which occured on June 29th, 2021 at Seme border. I was rescued by the people around.

In his words ” i wish to call for security operatives vigilance to stem the tide of banditry and  kidnapping, which when added with  political  attacks  have further worsen the general insecurity in the country.”
