The residence of the Labour Party candidate for the July 16 Osun governorship poll, Mr Lasun Yusuf, has been attacked by unknown gunmen in Ilobu, Osun State.
Confirming the attack, Wole Oladimeji, the media aide to Lasun Yusuff, said the ex-deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, and members of his family, who had returned home to celebrate the Eid Kabir festival were all in the house when the attackers struck in the early hours of Monday.
According to Oladimeji, when the attackers could not gain entrance into the building, they fired shots from outside the premises, aiming at the upper floor of the storey building where bedrooms are and shattered the aluminium windows.
He also said Lasun and some members of his family were inside when the attack took place, but no casualty was recorded.
“It is true. My principal is already working on informing security agents of the development. He was in the house with members of his family. But no one was injured.
“They fired into the upper floor of the storey building where bedrooms are because they could not gain entrance into the building,” Oladimeji said.
