Shina Peller Attacked By Thugs During APC Rally In Oyo, Mom And Wife Almost Injured [Photos]

“Unpleasant news like this is bound to discourage many like me who are truly driven by the desire to serve our people positively from venturing into politics.”

Quilox Club CEO, Shina Peller was attacked by political thugs, suspected to be from the opposition party during the campaign rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo state on Thursday.

Shina Peller took to his Instagram page to reveal that his mother and wife barely escaped being injured as the thugs attacked his convoy.

He went further to condemn the attack, asking why politicians go violent on their oppositions without knowing that unpleasant events like this are bound to discourage many like him who are driven to serve the people positively from venturing into politics.

Since I got actively involved in politics, I have preached against political violence, and this is often reflected in my utterances and acts. The ugly incidence that occurred yesterday during the Oyo State APC campaign in Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa federal constituency saddened my heart. After touring the three other local governments in my constituency, we returned to Iseyin with our leader, Governor Isiaka Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State. The governor addressed thousands of people gathered and even promised to grant our yearning for the establishment of University in Iseyin. However, to my dismay, my convoy was attacked on my way home, and cars destroyed by some opposition political thugs. My mother and wife almost got wounded. Why should any politician go violent on the opposition if truly such a person is driven by the desire to serve his people purposefully, and not for selfish interest? One of the major reasons I am into politics is to ensure unity and peaceful coexistence of my people, as I have realised that disunity contributes greatly to our underdevelopment. Unpleasant news like this is bound to discourage many like me who are truly driven by the desire to serve our people positively from venturing into politics. #ShinaAyo2019 #TogetherWeCan
