Jandor expressed frustration on Tuesday January 24th at a meeting with the Chief Imam at the Ketu Central Mosque.

The PDP flagbearer met the religious leader on the side-line of a scheduled tour of Kosofe Local Government Area.

He said earlier in the day, hoodlums attacked his convoy in Kosofe, stabbing a security operative.

The politician said the trend “is not healthy for democracy and the 2023 election”.

The candidate’s motorcade was targeted at different times in Badagry, Agege, among others,

Jandor vowed to continue the visits in his quest to rescue Lagos from the All-Progressives Congress (APC).
