Hoodlums suspected to be assassins were allegedly said to have recently raided the house of former House of Assembly aspirant for Sagamu constituency 1 under All Progressives Congress (APC) in the just concluded elections, Hon Waheed Olalekan Ayodele.
The hoodlums were said to have forcefully gained entrance into the private residence of the politician along Ayepe road, Sagamu on Saturday night 6th of July and scattering everything in sight.
Our Correspondent gathered that the gun wielding assailants did however not meet their prime target, Hon Ayodele at home as he was outside of the country attending Lion International convention in Italy.
The three gun totting criminals were allegedly said to have manhandled the wife and children of the former legislator met at home and sternly assured her that her husband had only postponed his death for few days
Sunday Ayodele, brother to Hon Waheed Olalekan Ayodele confirmed this ugly development saying that his brother had before and after the election been battling with threat from some disgruntled element who felt his rising profile would strongly affect performance of their party’s candidates in the last election.
Ayodele said his brother had since gone underground to avoid being slaughtered unnecessarily on the altar of politics of bitterness while his wife had also been forced to disappear with the children into thin air following this incessant attack.
He has therefore appealed to the police authority who he said is well aware of the unfortunate incident to intensify their efforts to get these criminals arrested as the family members are terribly worried for the safety of Hon Ayodele and his family.
Hon Waheed Olalekan Ayodele in a telephone interview with our Correspondent wondered who was after his life just for being a politician whose major interest was to ensure quality life for the people of Sagamu local government.
He said ” I have since been living in fear for my life, wife and children since this terrible incident happened. I really hope the police will get to the root of this wicked act”.
