Lagos PDP gov aspirant wears bulletproof vest to primary

A Lagos State governorship aspirant, Mr. Babatunde Gbadamosi,  popularly known as BOG, caused a stir at the Lagos State Peoples Democratic Party governorship primary when he arrived the venue in a bulletproof vest.
Gbadamosi, while addressing journalists at the venue, said he wore the vest in order to protect himself from being hit by a stray bullet following the violence that erupted earlier in the day.
Although the party leadership had said the violence was caused by thugs loyal to the opposition party, Gbadamosi said the real perpetrators of the violence were from within the PDP.
Gbadamosi said the violence was part of a plot to intimidate the almost 1,000 delegates that have converged on the venue.
He said, “I am wearing the bulletproof vest because I am afraid of being shot at but I am urging all my supporters to come and not be intimidated.
“There is fear of intimidation and some people in the party want to intimidate the delegates but we will ensure that everyone will vote fearlessly and as it pleases them.”
He said it was unfortunate that the party leadership was supporting an aspirant.
He, however said the leaders would have their say while the delegates would have their way.
When asked if he was confident of winning, he said, “Would I have paid over N11m to purchase the form if I was not confident?”
