If not for mother luck the wife of one of the top contenders for the Oyo Governorship race and the flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party in the State, Senator Teslim Folarin, Angela would have been a victim of political violence.

Sources revealed to Papermacheonline how the woman was attacked in Ibadan some days ago.

The order of the day in the state where top politicians and titans like Chief Rasheed Ladoja, Chief Bayo Alao- Akala, incumbent Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, Senator Teslim Folarin and Engineer Seyi Makinde are the top contenders for the governorship position is the destruction of campaign billboards and posters of some of the candidates.

Allegations and counter-allegations had followed the act while many of the contenders fingered the agents of the state government whom they alleged of the act in what they termed ‘unnecessary panic’.

The wife of the PDP candidate was said to be driving down the Ring Road axis of Ibadan when she noticed  some people de-facing the billboards of her husband. She ordered her driver to slow down and she was in the process of taking the shots of the people which she claimed was been guarded by some security operatives with her ipad when they spotted and identified her.  The quick decision of her driver to speed off the scene saved her as she claimed she was repeatedly shot at.

The attack was said to have raised concerns among the elites of the state who condemned the ‘do or die’ act of some of the politicians.

Barely two days after the incident, the rally of one of the aspirants, Seyi Makinde who is the flagbearer of the Social Democratic Party was disrupted by hoodlums who stormed the Mapo Hall venue of the rally and attacked the supporters of the politician who were holding a peaceful rally.
