Tensions is rising in Ogun state, following the increasing political violent attacks on some of the 2019 polls candidates and their supporters.

Last Saturday, supporters of APC governorship candidate, Prince Dapo Abiodun, were attacked at Odogbolu in the Ijebu axis of the state.

On Sunday, hoodlums destroyed several campaign buses of Ogun state PDP, Senator Buruji Kashamu, following the altercation between him and Ogun state PDP aspirant, Honorable Ladi Adebutu.

The clash started from the church service that both Kashamu and Adebutu attended at the tabernacle of his glory in Sagamu, belonging to Ogun state’s former governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel.

Meanwhile, Ogun state APC has asked the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to investigate the rising attacks on 2019 polls candidates and their supporters in the state.

APC caretaker committee publicity secretary, Tunde Oladunjoye, wants the IGP to set up an independent panel to investigate the attacks and report its findings directly to the force headquarters.

Oladunjoye said the party had in the past raised its concern over such attacks.
