Ogun 2023Guber Poll : Abiodun Condemns Violence, Vows To Deal With Perpetrators

Governor Dapo Abiodun has vowed to deal decively with those behind the pockets of violence in some parts of Ogun State, during the conduct of the governorship and House of Assembly elections on Saturday.

The governor  who condemned the act in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary ,Kunle Somorin, blamed opposition elements for the sponsoring such attacks 

"Rather than subjecting the exercise to  the people's choice, these undemocratic characters turned a seamless electoral process to a do or die affairs", Abiodun was quoted in the statement

Governor Abiodun said the reports of the violence came as a surprise, as the election started on a peaceful note across the state.

Abiodun seriously frowned at the situation, which, according to him, will not be condoned.

He said though normalcy had returned to the affected areas as security agencies swiftly responded, the state government would not hesitate to deal with anyone or groups behind the poll disruption, attacks on voters and snatching of ballot boxes.

While the statement urged the people and residents in the state to remain calm and law-abiding, it further warned 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 submitted

Some of the agents of political parties were caught in the act of votes buying by operatives of security agencies
