The 2023 governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and lawmaker representing Oyo Central senatorial district, Senator Teslim Folarin has strongly condemned attack on Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s convoy by hoodlums.
The bus conveying press crew of Lagos State Governor’s Office on Sunday was attacked by hoodlums between Ebute-Ero and Adeniji, Iga-Iduganran axis on Lagos Island, leaving no fewer than two journalists wounded.
The press crew bus joined other vehicles conveying dignitaries, including 2023 APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu; Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu; Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje; and others, who had just left the palace of Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwanu Akiolu.
Folarin, in a statement made available to journalists on Sunday evening, described the attack as politically-motivated.
“The attack on the press crew of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s convoy is utterly condemnable. It’s a politically motivated and criminal act.
“I urge the law enforcement agencies to fish out the perpetrators and bring them to book as it will serve as a deterrent to others.
“I wish the injured journalists speedy recovery” the statement concluded
