Ayo Makun Ayo Makun

Famous comedian, Ayo Makun aka AY has spoken on reported cases of political violence across the country.

With the Gubernatorial and Assembly polls only a few hours away, there have been reports of violent attacks of party supporters by opponents in some States.

On Thursday, the Labour Party Assembly candidate, for Surulere Constituency 1, Olumide Oworu, claimed thugs invaded his campaign rally at Iponri, Surulere.

Remarking to the seeming political violence, the film maker argued only unrefined people engage in the act.

He explained elections shouldn’t have to result people being killed while exercising their democratic rights campaigning for their preferred political candidates.

“Only the primitives engage in political violence. Elections shouldn’t result into do or die affairs when exercising our democratic rights, in supporting and demanding the services of people we can trust,” the 51-year-old actor tweeted.
