The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the alleged attack occurred between Ebute-Ero and Adeniji, Iga-Iduganran, during the APC presidential candidate, Sen. Bola Tinubu’s visit to the palace of the Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu.

The Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Gbenga Omotoso, disclosed this in a statement on Monday, that Sanwo-Olu has also  directed  that the perpetrators must be fished out and made to face the law.

Omotoso said that government would pick up the hospital bills of those injured in the incident.

“Lagos state government condemns the incident. We hold the media in high esteem and the government has always ensured that they have a conducive environment to perform their duties.

“Nobody or group will be allowed to destroy our cordial relationship with the media. Lagos has no room for hooligans,” he said. (NAN)
