APC Chieftain, Afolabi Olaposi, shot dead over Ondo election

Mr Afolabi Olaposi, a chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Owo, Ondo State, was killed by unknown gunmen on Thursday night in Owo.

The Party said in a statement issued by its Publicity Secretary, Mr Abayomi Adesanya, on Friday in Akure that Olaposi was shot dead on his way home after attending a party meeting in preparation for the governorship election. The party said:
“Olaposi, who was one of the leaders of our party in Igboroko Ward 1, Owo, was also an ardent supporter of our Governorship Candidate, Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN). 
“He was a perfect gentleman who was committed to the development of the party in Owo and Ondo State in general. 
“The assailant also went to the house of Chief Jamiu Ekungba, an APC aspirant in the Sept. 3 Primary, and vandalised seven vehicles in his compound. 
“Ekungba was not to at home during the attack. 
We believe those calling for the postponement of the election and threatening a repeat of 1983 violence were behind these dastardly acts
“We call on security agents in the state to fish out those behind these acts and ensure the protection of our people before, during and after the election."
The election, based on INEC schedule, comes up on Saturday, November 26.

Politics is a war without bloodshed_Chairman Mao. In this part of the world, our politicians defy Chairman Mao school of thought, killing all in the name of coming to serve people but their intention is to come & enmase wealth at all cost, is one of the reasons for killing & maiming one another.

Olufamous you see when I have been begging the federal government through your wonderful blog that they should send in as many security personnel in ur recent post concerning Ondo election to avoid all this evil things happening right now..
I wonder how people in Ondo state can be bold enough to come out en mass to cast their vote,when our Federal Government can not provide proper security for the electorate..

My prayers goes to everyone in Ondo state..
