“Of significant mention are the attack on the @FlagBoy and his cameraman who allegedly came close to being lynched.
LP said the “attack on any Nigerian is an attack on all of us and an attack on democracy, and we strongly condemn such barbaric methods of intimidating and harassing our teaming supporters.”

“The party strongly condemns such violent attacks and urges the security authorities to fish out perpetrators of such undemocratic acts who are bent on causing mayhem and plunging the nation into anarchy.”

“Additionally, the party is conducting discreet investigations into the incidents and will appreciate useful information from the general public.”

“We insist that a new Nigeria is possible, where the rights of every citizen are not just guaranteed but guarded and protected.”
