Some suspected hoodlums have reported disrupted a political town hall meeting at the Indoors Pavilion Sport of Digital Bridge Institute (DBI) at Oshodi, hosted by Senator Solomon Olamilekan Adeola AKA (Yayi).

The senator was reported meeting with artisans, market women and physically challenged people within the district when the hoodlum attacked.

The meeting, which ended abruptly, also had in attendance members of Community Development Associations (CDAs) as well as leaders of Igbo, Yoruba and Hausa communities.

Eyewitnesses at the venue of the event disrupted the meeting meeting when they couldn’t get money from Adeola, who had come to address people on his plans and programmes, if re-elected.

“The hoodlums, disturbed by their inability to get money from the lawmaker, opened fire into the air in the presence of the men of the Mobile Police Force.

“But for the swift intervention of the police, the hoodlums could have attacked the Senator. The hoodlums exchange fire with the police,” one of them said.

Senator Adeola was later led to safety by the Police.

Several bullet cannons littered the premises venue of the meeting.
