Lagos PDP chairman condemns violence at Eti- Osa party meeting

Post by Kingseyi on Sun Jul 22, 2018 5:19 pm

Lagos – The Lagos State chapter of the Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the
violence that erupted at its meeting in Eti-Osa
area, describing it as very unfortunate.
Mr Moshood Salvador, the State Chairman of
PDP, spoke on Sunday in Lagos while reacting
to the incident.
*Salvador: Lagos State PDP has no
representative in govt nor the party
The violence broke on Saturday at a mobilisation
meeting of the party at Eti-Osa following
disagreement among its members.
Salvador described the incident as “very sad’’,
especially as the party was working hard to rise
above its challenges to attain greater heights.
He blamed the incident on saboteurs who were
never interested in peace and progress of the
party.
Salvador said that the police had waded into the
matter, believing that the perpetrators would be
made to face the law.
“The incident was condemnable and unfortunate,
especially as the party has been working hard
on its repositioning.
“You see, this is what I talk about everywhere I
go, that people should shun violence at all levels
and embrace peace.
“The incident is saddening. We feel sad that
some people would still go in the way of
violence in spite our efforts to promote peace,”
he said.
Salvador said that trouble started when
suspected thugs invaded venue of the meeting
and beat a chieftain of the party after a
disagreement with another party leader in the
area.
He said that his security details whisked him
away from the scene immediately they sensed
danger.
The party chairman said it was after he left the
venue that he was told that there were
shootings and somebody died.
Salvador said that he would write a report to the
national leadership of the party for appropriate
action.
He blamed the incident on act of indiscipline of
some members, saying that he would fight
impunity in the local chapter of the party.
Meanwhile, the Lagos State Police Command, on
Sunday said it has detained five PDP chieftains
in the state for interrogation over the killing of
Mr Borishade Adeniyi, the Chairman of PDP
Apapa Chapter.
CSP Chike Oti, the command’s spokesman, said
in a statement that what was supposed to be a
peaceful political meeting of PDP members
ended in unnecessary bloodletting. (NAN)
