Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has said that members of the opposition political parties in the State have concluded plans to attack some facilities of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the State.

Makinde made the allegation on Sunday.

DAILY POST reports that there have been reports of attacks on some INEC facilities across the country.

The recent incidents were recorded in Osun and Ogun States a few days ago.

Makinde, who assumed office in 2019 as governor of the State, and is seeking a second term in office, has now alerted that some members of the opposition political parties in the State are planning to attack INEC facilities.

He made this disclosure via a statement issued by the media arm of his campaign committee.

The statement was made available to DAILY POST Sunday evening by Dotun Oyelade, chairman of the committee.

He urged the commission to be on guard.

Oyelade said, “Having noticed the untoward and ignoble development of perpetrating arson against INEC facilities by unscrupulous elements in the society, we would like to warn the opposition in Oyo State not to even think of carrying out such heinous crime, as it cannot save them from losing the forthcoming election.

“But if the opposition in Oyo State thinks it can copy that template to disorient the people and walk away scot-free with unmerited victory, then it must perish the thought, as such action will not be condoned in the State.

“It is also important to warn the electoral body, INEC, and security agencies in the State to be alert and on guard and to beef up security at all facilities where election-related materials are kept,” he said.
