Thugs Storm Ogun Governorship Election Tribunal Premises

Thugs stormed the Ogun State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Isabo on Monday despite the heavy presence of security agents.

Gatekeepers News reports that the tribunal, which held its inaugural session amid tight security, commenced hearing of the petition filed by the PDP governorship candidate, Ladi Adebutu, against Governor Dapo Abiodun of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Despite the road leading to the court being cordoned off by a combined team of security operatives, a large number of thugs arrived to support their political parties as the tribunal began sitting.

Some of the thugs were seen holding canes as a minor clash broke out between supporters of two major political parties – APC and the PDP.

Political thugs roamed about with canes in their hands, while the security agents watched without arresting or stopping them from causing chaos.

It took the intervention of fully armed security operatives, comprising the police, Department of State Services (DSS), and Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), who dispersed the thugs before peace could be restored.

The security operatives also prevented political supporters from entering into the premises of the court.
