We Have Intel About Potential Assassination Attempts On My Life - Rhodes-Vivour

Speaking in an interview with Arise TV this morning, Rhodes-Vivour said he and his team have gotten a lot of intel about potential assassination attempts on his life.

The LP governorship candidate also confirmed reports that there was a gunshot incident on Saturday during his campaign in the Epe area of Lagos.

According to him, some men who were wearing a political party’s campaign shirts obstructed their movement, but the timely intervention of the police and the DSS who were on his campaign train helped to prevent the incident from escalating.

Rhodes-Vivour said, “There have been lots of threats. We have gotten a lot of intel about potential assassination attempts on my life. Yes it happened in Epe.

“We had Honorable Wale Oluwo with us and we also hand Honorable Najid of the PDP working with us and they were also shot at in Epe yesterday.

“There was a lot of anger amongst the APC youths that were there because these peopke were wearing greater rising T-shirts so we are not speculating, they were APC.

“The idea is we need to move away fom this agberocracy that Lagos state has come to be defined as where it is about violence and vitrol and anger and suppression and intimidation . If you do your job, you shouldn’t have to intimidate people”

On how the incident happened, he said, “As our convoy was moving, a lot of young men came out and tried to block the road and we couldn’t go in.

“We had a lot of force with us in terms of the police and it was very important that we did not show any force because what will then happen as they are trying to propangadize a Gbadebo to a Chinedu, they will now say I came in there and I tried to take over Epe and I am using guns.

“We had the police go in there and try to allay everything. The DSS was also very helpful in trying to neutralize the situation. They did shoot at us and they did try to intimidate us”

KanyiDaily recalls that a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bode George had previously raised an alarm that there are plans to kill Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour before the Lagos governorship election on Saturday.
