The Presidential Campaign Council of the Labour Party has outrightly condemned the politically motivated attacks on innocent citizens in parts of Lagos State on Monday.

Naija News learned that some Lagosians were attacked by hoodlums in the early hours of Monday because they were believed to have voted for Obi and his party.

But in a statement on Monday night in Abuja, the Deputy Director General/Campaign Manager, Obi-Datti PCC, Oseloka Obaze, said it is regrettable that citizens will be subjected to humiliation because they voted for the party of their choice.

The LP candidate said the party is aware of some egregious irregularities in the elections in several states and will use constitutional means to address its grievances thus giving peace a chance.

The statement reads, “It is most regrettable that political thugs would single out citizens who exercised their constitutional rights to vote for candidates or parties of their choice.

“In keeping with its core value of political decorum, the Labour Party thanks its supporters and indeed all Nigerians living in Lagos who have exercised their fundamental rights to vote according to the dictates of their conscience.

“Labour Party is aware of some egregious irregularities in the elections in several states.

“The party will follow due process and must use constitutional means to address our grievances thus giving peace a chance.

“It will, however, remain resolute in its mission to change Nigeria, which is after all greater than all of us. We have to protect the peace while defending every vote.
