Journalists attached to the Lagos State Governor’s office were on Sunday attacked by hoodlums who inflicted injuries on some members of the crew.

The attackers stormed the palace of the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu after they got information that the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, was at the palace with Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his Kano State colleague, Abdullahi Ganduje.

They vandalised a bus belonging to the Lagos State Governor’s Office Correspondents (LAGOCO).

A correspondent with the Western Post, Adeola Ogunrinde, was hit on her right eye.

She told Nigeria Info that the hoodlums wielded swords and cutlasses with which they smashed the side glasses and front windshields of the LAGOCO vehicle.

Other pressmen sustained minor injuries and are currently receiving medical attention.
