According to the Police, the NURTW leader attended the rally with a group of people identified at the entrance as supporters of the party, only for them to violently attack other supporters of the party for no reason.

A statement by the state police command revealed that another NURTW chieftain, MC Oluomo, was stabbed and rushed to the hospital where he is currently receiving treatment.

Some journalists were reportedly hit by a stray bullet at the rally.

The rally, which held in Ikeja is Babajide Sanwoolu’s first open-air campaign as he seeks votes ahead of the Lagos governorship election scheduled to hold in March.
