“We were marching close to Lakowe junction when all of a sudden, a bus full of political thugs with all kinds of weapons stopped right in front of us and they started attacking us for no reason.

“It was as if they were waiting for us. Some of them had cutlasses and a majority of them had different objects like sticks and stones and they started attacking us and we all had to run for safety,” he told The Independent.

Another victim, Oluwadare Bamidele, the Labour Party organising secretary in the Ibeju-Lekki Local Government Area, claimed that the attacks were planned. He said the attackers were lying in wait inside the bus at a corner around the junction and emerged when they saw them at the junction.
