The Labour Party candidate of the just concluded governorship election in Lagos State, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has said that what happened in the state was a war, not a poll.

He said this while speaking on Arise Television’s morning show on Friday, Rhodes-Vivour, also said that the responsibility of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) must improve amid the election’s conduction.

Rhodes-Vivour said, “What happened in Lagos was a war on Lagosians no matter how they want to color it or muddle the waters.

“In Ikoyi, there were Yoruba people who were beaten and affected by thugs and hooligans that came into the place.

“Look at what happened VCG as well and the complicity of INEC as well in this process need to be taken up so that If they want to try anything next time they would do things differently, give a perception of equity, fairness and justice, not these brazing rip over democracy in Lagos State.”

INEC had in March declared Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as the winner of the Lagos gubernatorial election.
