A Twitter user whose handle is @ObiFlagboy on Sunday wrote, “Attention everyone, this is what the chairman of Oshodi and his boys did to us today at Oshodi because they saw us carrying Peter Obi flag.

“We were almost burnt alive if not for an army officer. We are seriously having internal bleeding.”

Reacting to the incident, Sowore, though an opposition candidate to Obi in the 2023 presidential election race, called on the Nigeria Police Force to immediately investigate and prosecute the perpetrators of the heinous act.

He wrote, “These are @NgLabour supporters of @PeterObi attacked and brutalized by @OfficialAPCNg supporters in Lagos.

“It is criminal to subject any Nigerian citizen to this level of cruelty over their political choices. @PoliceNG must prosecute them accordingly.”

Similarly, the Labour Party on its Twitter page on Monday condemned the attack, saying that an attack on one Nigerian because of their political choice is an attack on all Nigerians.

“ObiDatti movement is a democratic movement and no one should be molested @PoliceNG @followlasg,” the party wrote.
