Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu
Ritualists affiliated with the All Progressives Congress (APC) have slaughtered a black goat to solicit supernatural intervention on behalf of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s re-election bid.
In a video posted yesterday by a Twitter user, members of a traditional spiritual group gathered around a town’s shrine to offer prayers for Mr Sanwo-Olu and against the “enemies” of the APC.
“We seal all APC enemies in their houses. Sanwo-Olu will be re-elected, APC will be re-elected,” the lead priest said while offering prayers.
The goat was then slaughtered to invoke powers to actualise their wishes.
Lagos gubernatorial election took a different turn during the week after traditional rulers loyal to the ruling APC decided to deploy rites and rituals that could intimidate non-indigenous voters. This action has been criticised by the general public as politicising traditional institutions and sponsoring voter suppression.
