Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has cautioned the Peoples Democratic Party against further use of alleged violence and thuggery

Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu

He alleged that the violence and thuggery, which characterised PDP’s primaries whereby part of the venue, the Dome, was destroyed, would no longer be tolerated.

He said his administration was disturbed and appealed to the PDP to exercise restraint in the deployment of violence and thuggery.

The governor said he would not hesitate to deploy the full weight of the law to protect the citizens.

Akeredolu, who spoke through his Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Donald Ojogo, said it was unacceptable and unimaginable that politicians would want to use violence to achieve personal aims.

He said he received credible reports that there was threat to lives and property during the PDP primary election held last Wednesday.

Akeredolu noted that recent trend of violence in the state was orchestrated following last Tuesday’s alleged attack on the home of his Special Adviser on Works and Infrastructure, Alhaji Raheem Aminu.

He said his aide escaped narrowly, but Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) captured the invaders’ activities.
