Gunmen numbering about ten, Saturday, invaded the Ake Palace Ground in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, venue of the ongoing parallel congress of a group of the All Progressives Congress, APC, loyal to the former Governor Ibikunle Amosun.

Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Olamilekan Adegbite; the Senator representing Ogun West Senatorial District, Tolu Odebiyi and the governorship candidate of the Allied Peoples Movement, APM in the 2019 election in the State, Adekunle Akinlade were amongst the dignitaries who were already at the venue before the gunmen came calling.

The Minister and the Senator who had barely arrived at the venue in the company of Akinlade and others were exchanging pleasantries with party loyalists when the gunmen invaded the venue.

The trio however escaped unhurt but many others were unlucky as they sustained different degrees of injuries.

THE rally being planned by some Nigerian youths to commemorate the first anniversary of last year’s bloody #EndSARS nationwide protests is heightening tension and generating fear among residents of Lagos State.

Those behind the planned rally have chosen Wednesday, October 20, for the commemoration which the police and the Lagos State government are insisting would not be allowed. Lagos became the epicentre of the protests when, on October 20, 2020, soldiers from Bonny Camp, 81 Division, fired live bullets at protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate and the alleged killings that reportedly attended the shooting led to a global outrage that rattled both the state and federal governments.

The actual number of fatalities at the shooting scene is yet to be established despite multiple testimonies at the judicial panel set up by the state government to unravel the remote and immediate causes of the mayhem and compensate identifiable victims of police brutality.
