Lawmaker laments threat to life as thugs attack his office in Lagos
The lawmaker at the Federal House of Assembly representing Oshodi-Isolo Federal Constituency I, Hon Mutiu Shadimu has raised the alarm over threat to his life as some hoodlums attacked his office in Lagos.
Shadimu, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) House of Representatives candidate in a statement, said the thugs destroyed property and injured his Personal Assistants and members of his party during the attack.
The lawmaker called on law enforcement agents, the police, Director of State Security (DSS), and other security agencies to ensure his security and that of his people.
“I want to bring to the notice of Nigeria, the security agencies and all relevant government agencies of the recent development in my constituency, Oshodi-Isolo Federal Constituency I, which has to do with the recent attack in my office during our campaign. My office was attacked, my people were also attacked with guns, about five persons have sustained injuries. We reported to the police force but up till now such attacks are still going on.
“I want to call on the Nigeria police and other law enforcement agents to live up to their responsibility in arresting criminals who were involved in the attack of my office. I want to bring this to the notice of Nigeria that the crisis in Oshodi-Isolo is getting out of hand and the security agencies need to respond to defend the people,” he said.
He added that attacks on opposition parties were not worth it during elections, saying some politicians resort to.
