Ahead of the 2023 general elections, Nollywood actress, and running mate to the Lagos state governorship candidate for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Funke Akindele has been chased out of the Ketu fruit market.
Investigation revealed that the Nollywood actress and now politician was harassed by some hoodlums in the market where she went to campaign ahead of the election.
Reacting to the development, during a meeting with the chief Imam of Ketu Central Mosque, the PDP governorship candidate for Lagos State, Abdul-Azeez Adediran (Jando), said his team members were stabbed during the attack which took place on Tuesday, January 24.
Jandor confirmed that Akindele left the campaign train while the team continued to move around the streets in the council.
The Politician also noted that a member of his security team was stabbed while others including journalists were injured.
However, noting that he was not deterred by the hoodlums’ attack, Jandor said his desire is to free the state from bondage and rescue it by allowing the wealth in the state to work for the people.
“What is happening in this country, we do want the sad experience repeat itself again, it is not healthy for nascent democracy, despite the attacks, we are moving and committed to rescue our people from shackles of poverty, bad governance and insecurity”.
“I know it is only God that can give and take, if God gives you, no one can take it.”
