A gang of masked men attacked the campaign trail of a House of Assembly candidate on the platform of the Social Democratic Party (SDP)  Ebenezer Adeniyan in Akure, the Ondo state capital.

The incident, Daily Trust learnt, occurred on Friday  at Oke Aro area of Akure during a tour of some wards.

The SDP candidate, a journalist and publisher of  Trace News Magazine, is contesting for  Akure South Constituency II at the Ondo State House of Assembly.

It was gathered that the suspected hoodlums damaged some vehicles in the campaign train and also shot sporadically to disrupt the activities line up for the campaign.

One of the members of the Adeniyan Campaign Organisation confirmed the attack.

“We were on the tour of two wards in the constituency area. And at the end of the tour, we went to Oke Aro to meet a political friend.

“Unfortunately, on our way back, we made a brief stop at the Abiodun junction to greet some community leaders.

“But as we were about to take our leave, the three masked men came running towards us from the street, and smashed the windscreen of our music truck.

“They shot into one of our branded cars through the windscreen but the courageous people in the area gave them a hot chase.

“Immediately, they flew the area and starting shooting in the air to scare people away and ran away in same direction they came from,” he said.

Reacting to the attack, Adeniyan expressed shock at the damage done on his campaign vehicles.

He, however, stated that the attack has been reported at the B Division Station of the Ondo State Police Command in Akure.
