Security agencies have been urged to fish out and prosecute those behind the fake violence video on Ondo state governorship poll.
The video which went viral on the day of the governorship poll shows a clip of some security operatives beaten a civilian. Besides, the narrative from the clip claimed that the wife of the governor was also beaten up. She has since refuted the claim.
Reacting on the video, Dr. Kayode Ajulo said the attempt by those behind the video to create fear in the mind of eligible voters was highly distasteful and uncalled for.
Ajulo in a statement urged the security to look properly into the video and fish out the perpetrators.
He stated, “It’s the hope and prayer of good and Progressive citizens that electoral processes are deviod of any form of violence which may lead to bloodshed.
“The main aim and purpose of election is to elect leaders after their heart, any other ulterior motive or incidents outside this aforementioned is a gross violation of what the system stands for.
“The fake video which was shared by unscrupulous elements in the State to manipulate and unduly create fear in the mind of the good people of Ondo State during the conduct of today’s election is highly distasteful and uncalled for.
“It’s my hope that our security personnel will look deep into this incident and fish out the perpetrators of this evil act, putting them to justice.”
He also congratulated Ondo people on the peaceful conduct of today’s election.
