Gunshots Fired As Thugs Attack Desmond Elliot In Lagos

Suspected hoodlums on Saturday shot sporadically as they attacked the vehicle of popular Nollywood actor and politician, Desmond Elliot, who's an APC candidate for Lagos House of Assembly.

The incident happened at about 3pm at Akerele junction in the Surulere area of Lagos.

The attack is said to have been perpetrated by street boys who wanted the famous actor to stop and give them money. But the lawmaker decided to keep going. His vehicle was attacked and the windshield broken.

His supporters at a nearby polling unit, PU20, Ward 7, Surulere, quickly called in reinforcement to rescue the lawmaker. Immediately he was rescued, thugs shot sporadically into the air, creating an even more tense atmosphere.

In a quick response, however, police officers attached to the nearby polling unit called in armed reinforcement who arrived to calm the situation.

Ad-hoc staffers of the electoral commission, INEC, were thus advised by security personnel to conclude their vote counting early before the situation escalates.
