As reported by Premium Times, he said:
“Please relocate Ogun State Election Tribunal from Abeokuta because it is no longer safe, so that we can go and have that Tribunal in the peaceful atmosphere of Abuja and everybody can have the case adjudicated, and we can deal with the outcome of the court cases.
“It is a very ugly day of shame, it is a day that nobody in his right senses who is a true born of Ogun State will be proud of this. Some of my followers are in the hospital as we speak attending to their injuries.
"Luckily, I was able to get away from the place, but it was not without its own scars.”
