LASAA Officials In Uniform Destroying Our Campaign Boards- Jimi Agbaje... by damosky12(m): 11:28am On Dec 17, 2018
Early this morning 16 December 2018, LASAA officials in uniform were caught destroying and carting away our boards placed in the Ikeja/Gbagada axis. It appeared to be a synchronized, organized operation as they were moving to different parts of Lagos to do the nefarious work.
Fortunately for us, some good samaritans were recording them while they were removing the boards and loading them into trucks at Ikeja. My team got wind of this illegal operation & immediately swung into action by alerting the Police & eventually apprehending the LASAA officials.
I addressed the press while at the Pedro Police Station where these men were detained and I have since then lodged a formal complaint and charged these miscreants to court.
Friends, the fact that we still have to contend with this sort of behaviour in 2018 is unfortunate. Lagosians, does it not prove that Lagos State is indeed in bondage? WHO is afraid of FREEDOM FOR THE PEOPLE? In a democracy, should the people not choose whom they want?
Just over a week ago, the Commissioner of Police indeed had a meeting with all political parties asking for a peaceful run up to elections. LASAA was present and all the parties made it clear that advertising during elections had waivers.
So why the attempts to eradicate all traces of opposition? The ruling party has behaved like thieves, coming in the dead of night to do evil. It is even more worrisome when you consider that a government agency is being used to intimidate and drown out opposition.
In a few of days, LASAA will come out to say: The men were not their employees. But we know they are because one of them had his ID card on him. Or they will say: JKs campaign did not ask permission before placing boards but the law is clear on exemptions for political periods.
Now let me be clear, in this election, we will not be intimidated by anyone. We will not retreat in the face of oppression and you can be certain that we will not surrender our freedom to express our right to participate in free and fair elections.
People of Lagos, let there be a level playing field. Today’s events have shown that the ruling party are scared of the POWER of the PEOPLE. It could not be any clearer. The time is now to
# SetLagosFree
Have a great week ahead everyone.

Jonathan said it all. The kind of thuggery and Gangstar politics some play in Nigeria is a major factor that has kept the nation at this level.
