The family house of one Mr. Ogunlesi Azeez, a former councillorship aspirant has been burnt down at 47 Ona Ara Street, off Ago Iwoye road, Ilisan, Remo, Ogun State, by suspected political thugs.
According to some occupants of the building who spoke to Vanguard on anonymous grounds, the incident which took place on the 20th of March, 2019, has rendered them homeless because the family house was the only home they once had.
“The armed men kept saying unless we provided Azeez, nobody in our family would be safe. Eventually, they decided to burn down the building, everyone had to run for their lives. An old woman was seriously injured during the incident”, one of the witnesses said.
Another witness noted that that Azeez, a strong member of one of Nigeria’s top political parties is a well-known politician in the area who was to contest for the post of Councilor at the ward level.
“Everybody thought he was going to be the party candidate during the 2015 election due to his popularity but nobody knew why he stepped down for another candidate. He has been running for his life ever since he declared intentions to run for councillorship election.”
