The home of a leader of All Progressive Congress(APC) in Okerube Ward at Abaranje in Alimoso Local Government Area of Lagos State, Mr. Lamidi Pedro, has been wrecked by stroke afflicting the patriarch.
Sixty-year-old Pedro suffered a stroke three days after President Muhammadu Buhari emerged winner of the presidential election after collapsing while celebrating alongside his party officials and faithful at the ward, New Telegraph reported.
The report said Mr. Pedro’s wife dumped him and took along their children.
According to the stroke victim: “In the midst of the celebration, three days after the election of President Muhammadu Buhari, I fell down and had my right arm and limb paralysed, I was carried home from the scene. When my condition continued to deteriorate, my wife ran away with my two children, Yusuf (12) and Mutaqeemat (six). I don’t know their whereabouts till now.
“I want to use this medium to appeal to APC party leaders, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, Senator Solomon Adeola representing Alimoso/Lagos West constituency and other well-meaning Nigerians to come and help me.
