The Osun East senatorial candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Francis Fadahunshi, on Monday alleged that he was attacked by some suspected gunmen in front of the state party secretariat late Sunday night.

The spokesperson of Fadahunshi Campaign Organisation, Sola Olowoye, who disclosed this to newsmen in Osogbo on Monday, explained that Fadahunsi’s convoy was returning from Independent National Electoral Commission’s  (INEC) head office in Osogbo when some unidentified men shot at him.

Olowoye also disclosed that a vehicle trailed the convoy, adding that the development forced the security aides attached to him to divert into the premises of the PDP secretariat.

“But as he was being rushed into the premises of PDP secretariat, some armed men alighted from the vehicle that had trailed us from INEC office and fired several shots at the Toyota Solara car conveying Fadahunshi,” Olowoye said.
He added that his principal barely escaped being hit by the bullets.  

“Fadahunshi was in company of the state chairman of PDP, Alhaji Gani Olaoluwa, and other party leaders when the attack took place. They had visited the INEC office because of the delay in announcing the winner of the senatorial contest,” Olowoye also said.
