Sowore's Supporters Arrested For Destroying Campaign Posters
Recall that an agreement was reached to the effect that no political party should undertake the defacing of campaign posters of other political parties nor the destruction of their billboards.
It was the outcome of a meeting held at the Police Officers Mess, GRA, Ikeja, on Wednesday, December 5, 2018, tagged Security and Stakeholders meeting involving the INEC, political parties in Lagos and their flagbearers, chaired by the State Commissioner of Police, CP Edgal Imohimi.
Less than five days after this, the police have already arrested their first suspects.
The Anti-crime patrol team of the Lagos State Police Command, Ikeja Division on Sunday, December 9, 2018, arrested six young men of TAKE IT BACK movement, tearing posters of other political parties and replacing them with that of African Action Congress (AAC).
The men, identified as Olagokun Odunayo, Kool-kloud Henry, Ugaju Joseph, Damilola Omidiji, Michael Kate and Banwo Olagokun also chose around 2AM to do their pasting.
All their acts are contrary to Lagos State Sinage and Advertisement Agency (LASAA) laws that forbade advertisers from pasting posters at no other hour than the day time.
Items recovered from the suspects include a poster bearing the picture of the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, (AAC) Mr. Sowore, brush, buckets containing gums and damaged posters of other political parties.
The CP has directed that the suspects be charged to court on Monday for malicious damage and conduct likely to cause a breach of the peace to serve as a deterrent to others.VIDEO: How Nigerian Celebrities Helped The Baby Mama 'Ministry'
