LP Candidate Petitions Police Over Assassination Attempt


Labour Party, LP, candidate for Surulere II Constituency in Lagos State recently escaped an assassination attempt as some hired killer, visited his residence.

He said in a statement that the killer gang numbering about eight, came to his home in two jeeps with tinted glasses last Friday afternoon.

According to him, though he was not around during the incident, the squad which initially made enquiries from neighbours, told the security man in his home that they were from “Team Lagos.”

Aside this, Aderonmu said the men also asked the security man what he was doing in the house and promised to be back.

The development he said forced him and members of his family to relocate to a hideout to escape being killed.

He added that another angle was added to the development yesterday, as his campaign manager, Mr. Wale Akinsote also got a death threat via a text message.

The text read: “Wale, its better now to withdraw yourself from Aderonmu because you are the one that is being used against our great party. Be warned if you don’t want to lose your life and family. The earlier the better.”

Lamenting the development, the LP House of Representative candidate for Surulere II, traced the development to his rising profile.

He said this should, however, that this should not be a reason for anybody to threaten or want to kill him and his supporters.

Consequently, Aderonmu called on the police to urgently investigate the matter and bring the culprits to book.
