Funke Akindele, a Nollywood actress-turned-politician running for governor of Lagos for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has been barred from entering the Ketu fruit market.
Several hoodlums allegedly harassed the Nollywood actress-turned-politician at a market where she went to campaign ahead of the election.
Abdul-Azeez Adediran, also known as Jandor, the PDP governorship candidate, stated that his team members were stabbed during the attack on Tuesday, January 24, while speaking with the chief imam of Ketu Central Mosque.
Jandor stated that Akindele had left the campaign train while it was still moving through the streets of the council.
The politician also claimed that a member of his security team was stabbed and that others, including journalists, were injured.
However, seeing that the hoodlums’ attack had not stopped him, Jandor declared that his goal was to free the state from servitude and save it by putting its resources to work for the people.
“WHAT IS HAPPENING WE DO NOT WANT IT AGAIN. IT IS NOT GOOD FOR DEMOCRACY, BUT DESPITE THE ATTACKS, WE ARE MOVING AND STILL MOTIVATED TO RESCUE OUR PEOPLE.
I KNOW IT IS ONLY GOD THAT CAN GIVE AND TAKE, IF GOD GIVES YOU NO ONE CAN TAKE.”
