Guber Polls: We’ll Deal With Perpetrators Of Violence – Gov Abiodun

March 19, (THEWILL) – Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has condemned reports of violence in some parts of the state during the conduct of the governorship and House of Assembly elections on Saturday.
Abiodun, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Kunle Somorin, blamed opposition elements as cause of the violence
He said rather than subjecting the exercise to the people’s choice, these undemocratic characters turned a seamless electoral process to a do or die affair.
The governor said that the reports of the violence came as a surprise because the election started on a peaceful note across the state.
He seriously frowned at the situation, which, according to him, would not be condoned, while noting that normalcy had returned to the affected areas as security agencies swiftly responded.
Abiodun said his government would not hesitate to deal with anyone or groups behind the poll disruption, attacks on voters and snatching of ballot boxes.
He urged the people and residents in the state to remain calm and law-abiding, it further warned that the state government would not treat anyone responsible for the violence with kids’ gloves.
“The law will take care of those caught to serve as a deterrent to their paymasters and their wards for violating the peaceful atmosphere that Ogun is noted for”, the statement added.
