The governorship candidate of the Labour Party for the March 18 election Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has alleged death threats and assassination attempts on his life.
Rhodes-Vivour, better known as GRV, stated this on Sunday when he appeared on Arise Television.
The LP candidate revealed that some gunmen suspected to be political thugs attacked some of his allies in the Epe Local Government Area of the state on Saturday.
According to him, his rising popularity has become an existential threat to some people in the state, making him and his team the target of violent physical attack and possible assassination.
“There have been lots of threats. We have gotten a lot of intel about potential assassination attempts on my life. Yes, it happened in Epe.
“We had Honourable Wale Oluwo with us and we also had Honourable Najid of the PDP working with us and they were also shot at in Epe yesterday,” Rhodes-Vivour said.
