The Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council has condemned the alleged politically motivated attacks on some citizens in parts of Lagos State.
The party claimed those attacked were believed to have voted for the LP.
In a statement signed on Monday February 27, by the council’s Deputy Director General, Oseloka Obaze, the team decried the attack which it described as “most regrettable”.
The statement read, “It is most regrettable that political thugs would single out citizens who exercised their constitutional rights to vote for candidates or parties of their choice.
“In keeping with its core value of political decorum, Labour Party thanks its supporters and indeed all Nigerians living in Lagos who have exercised their fundamental rights to vote according to the dictates of their conscience.
“Labour Party is aware of some egregious irregularities in the elections in several states. The party will follow due process and must use constitutional means to address our grievances thus giving peace a chance. It will, however, remain resolute in its mission to change Nigeria, which is after all greater than all of us. We have to protect the peace while defending every vote.
“Governments at all levels must recommit to the constitutional responsibility to protect citizens within their territories regardless of their political leanings.”
