Suspected political thugs, Tuesday, launched an attack on the convoy of former Deputy Governor (Operations) of Central Bank of Nigeria, Chief Adebayo Adelabu in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
Adelabu, who recently resigned from the apex bank to join the gubernatorial race in the state, Daily Post reports, was at the Ibadan North West Local Government chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for his sensitization tour.
The attack, Daily Post reports, occurred barely few minutes after Adelabu left the venue of the meeting at Inanlende area of Ibadan.
Though the cause of the attack has not been revealed, it was gathered that his entry into the gubernatorial race had become a source of headache for others aspirants under the platform of the APC.
A source at the scene told Daily Post that many people were injured during the attack.
He added that several cars and buses, including those in the convoy of Adelabu and others belongings to commercial drivers who ply the Mokola-Ayeye Road were also damaged while the attack lasted.
However, all efforts made by Daily Post to get reactions from Adelabu or any of his aides proved abortive as of the time of filing this report.
All efforts to get reaction from the state police command also proved abortive as calls put through to the telephone of the Police Public Relations Officer, Adekunke Ajisebutu were not through.
