The campaign team of the Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the Ondo State governorship election, Eyitayo Jegede, has raised alarm over threat to his life.
The former Attorney-General of the state was defeat by the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu.
He has, however, challenged the result of the October 10 election at the Election Petition Tribunal.
The campaign Organisation in a statement released through its leader, Gbenga Akinmoyo, said some people are threatened by Jegede’s petition at the tribunal, hence, the plan to get rid of him.
The statement said, “Information at the disposal of Eyitayo Jegede Campaign Organisation is that there is security threat to the candidate of the PDP in the election of 10th October 2020, especially in relation to the petition which he lodged against the APC at the election tribunal.”
“Sources confirmed that various meetings have been held at very high quarters by those who feel threatened by the step taken by the candidate.”
“We use this opportunity to notify the security agencies of this threat and/or likely breach of security around our candidate, we believe the security agencies will rise up to the occasion and take the threat seriously.”
