The All Progressives Congress (APC) has petitioned security agencies over the alleged attack on Lola Ashiru, its senatorial Candidate for Kwara South.

Malam Lanre Issa-Onilu, the APC National Publicity Secretary made this known in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.

He said the alleged attacks, which occurred in Ojoku town in Kwara South Senatorial District of the state left no fewer than eight persons injured, while two others were shot dead.

Issa-Onilu noted that the Palace of the Olojoku of Ojoku, HRH Oba Abdulganiyu Adegboyega Afolabi was not spared in the attacks, saying that the monarch was also stoned.

He called on security agencies to fish out and arrest the masterminds of the attack, who he said have since gone into hiding.

Issa-Onilu added that such crimes could not be swept under the carpet in the name of politics, adding that the mastermind and his accomplices must face the law for their involvement.

He commiserated with the families of the dead victims and the entire Ojoku community over the attacks and prayed for speedy and full recovery of the injured.

He stressed that Kwara electorate have had enough of this kind of retrogressive politics and attempt to suppress the will of the people.

He stressed that no level of violence and intimidation would deter the Kwara electorate.
