Director-General of the Olusegun Mimiko Campaign Organisation, Mr. Akin Adaramola, alleged on Wednesday that one of the opposition parties in the state was planning to cause violence during the October 20 governorship election in the state.
Adaramola, who addressed a news conference in Akure, claimed that leaders of the opposition party intended to provide branded Labour Party vests and caps for their followers to attack people during the poll.
He said, “Part of their plans is an arrangement to impersonate the LP as they had perfected plans for their boys to wear the vests and caps with the Mimiko’s name on election day.
“They plan to take photographs and document the incident for the purpose of presenting them as evidence at the Election Petitions Tribunal.
“Their plot is to explore technical means of creating confusion during the governorship election by perpetrating acts which they hope to use against the Labour Party while prosecuting their legal battle after losing the poll.
“At the moment they had produced about 300,000 reading ‘Mimiko Special Corps, anti electoral fraud’.”
Adaramola displayed some of the branded shirts and caps allegedly produced by the opposition party.
He said, “They had taken possession of over 300,000 copies which are stored in an undisclosed location in Lagos State. A Nigerian, who works as a printer recently smuggled some of the items, which is what we are now displaying for members of the public to see.
“We decided to address the good people of the state and draw their attention to this wicked plot aimed at discrediting the person and office of the governor.”
