The state’s police spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin made this known in a statement Monday.
PLATFORM TIMES has reported that the convoy of the PDP candidate was attacked by thugs on Sunday.

He said, “The Lagos State Police Command has commenced investigations into the attack on the campaign train of the PDP gubernatorial candidate in Lagos State, Olajide Adediran.
“It is imperative to clarify that the party notified DPO Badagry of the time and locations of their visits. Adequate security was provided.
“However, the campaign train made an unscheduled visit to a totally different and undisclosed location on their way back without commensurate notification to the police.
“Furthermore, the command is awaiting from the victims a complaint/statement that would assist in the ongoing investigation.
“The assurance is hereby given that no stone will be left unturned to arrest and prosecute the attackers.”
