Two All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirants, Mr Segun Abraham and Senator Ajayi Boroffice are trading words over the recent clash in Akoko South West Local Government Area.

Abraham, who last week  met party chieftains at Iwaro Oka-Akoko, was attacked and five vehicles in his convoy was damaged by suspected political thugs. Although, no life was lost but a man sustained injury and a female supporter was striped naked.

The aspirant, however, pointed accusing finger at Boroffice, who is from that council as the brain behind the attack.

Abraham said they started suspecting strange faces with daggers, sticks, matchets in the hall when he was addressing the party members.

“Some of those harmful objects were seized by my security men. I am so surprised that Boroffice and his people could do these kind of things to us.

“I have been to five local governments and there was no anyone where I was attacked. What are we talking? I gave then money but understand that they were calling him and he was given them instructions.

“How can he be in his local government? Akoko to Akoko? APC to APC? Ondo to Ondo person? I have been to South and Central and other part in Akoko where is it that it only here we were attacked and matchet was seized from one of them”.

Abraham said he could not be frightened by the attack and he would go ahead with his ambition, claiming he enjoys large support from the party members.

But, the senator denied the allegation, saying it was an embarrassment to him because he was not in the state when the incident occurred.

Boroffice said: “When it happened, I tried to find out what led to it. To me it is an embarrassment to me because as a senator of Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Asiwaju of Akoko land I cannot mastermind attack on a fellow party man.

“When I had about it, I asked people to investigate the man and I was informed that when Segun Abraham got to the community, he went to St. Catherine hospital in the community. He addressed the people, they were attentive and corporated with him.

“Then, he now make announcement that he is donating N5million to the hospital. So the community boys, Okada riders and others felt that if you are given N5m to an hospital, they want there own too”.
