End SARS: Hoodlums raze Akeredolu’s campaign office, NDPHC boss house in Ondo
The violence that has continued to rock Ondo State by hoodlums under the guise of End SARS protest took another turn on Thursday as residential houses of some political leaders in the state were destroyed and burnt down.
The mob action took another dimension as hoodlums in Akure, the Ondo State capital resumed from where they left off on Wednesday as they set the campaign office of Governor Oluwarotim Akeredolu on fire.
The campaign office located on Oyemekun road, which was used for campaign activities during the just concluded electioneering period in the state was said to have been lit by the hoodlums after vandalizing it.
Vehicles within the premises of the campaign offices were also not spared in the arson.
Just as the arson was going on in Akure, hoodlums in Okitipupa, headquarters of Okitipupa Local Government Area of the state were also said to be marking buildings of chieftains of the All Progressives Congress, APC, for attacks.
A building belonging to Ife Oyedele, who was a governorship aspirant under the APC and the Executive Director of Niger Delta Power Holding Company (NDPHC) was razed.
The development has led to palpable tension in the state as residents feared that the move by the hoodlums might escalate into political violence.
Recall that on Wednesday, the state secretariats of both the APC and the PDP were razed.
