Hoodlums take over, unleash mayhem during the campaign

There were gunshots and pandemonium on Tuesday as the All Progressives Congress, APC, flagged of campaign in Lagos for its governorship candidate, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and other party flag-bearers in the state.

Popular area father, MC Oluomo was said to have been stabbed in the skirmish that occurred at the campaign ground.

The campaign was held at the Sky Power Ground, Oba Akinjobi Road, Ikeja, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria.

Party supporters fleeing the scene

Everything was going on well when a gunshot was heard at the podium where Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde Anifowoshe, popularly known as ‘K1 De Ultimate’ was performing and thrilling the audience.

Sources said there was a skirmish between supporters of MC Oluomo and other transport unions, as series of gunshots rent the air, causing pandemonium at the Sky Power Ground.

We gathered that Governor Akinwunmi Ambode was addressing the crowd when the first gunshot was heard, sending panic among the crowd.

Ambode was said to have told the crowd that the police were in control of the situation, but things got worse as a series of gunshots were heard.
