It Is Unadvisable For The Unarmed Masses To Throw Objects At The Gunmen Instead Of To Run From Them

According to Daily News, two factions of of the All Progressive Congress (APC) held congresses in the Palace of Alake of Egbaland - Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo - earlier in the day. And the factions were reportedly led by a former Governor of Ogun State, Senator Ibikunle Amosu, and Honourable Dapo Abiodun - the incumbent Governor of the state respectively.

Among the dignitaries who were allegedly at the rallies were the Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Olamilekan Adegbite; the Senator representing Ogun West Senatorial District, Tolu Odebiyi; and the state's governorship candidate of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) in the 2019 election.

However, shortly before the commencement of the rallies, some Gunmen stormed the venue, and started shooting sporadically in the air. And as a result of the appearance of the armed hoodlums, everyone there fled in different directions for safety. And although some of those who were there did not sustain any injuries, many of the rest did. But no life was reportedly lost.

However, it took the courage of the party supporters to resist the intruders by throwing stones at them before they left the venue of the rallies. Meanwhile, both the men of the police force, the National Security, Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and the Amotekun regional vigilantes who were present there allegedly could not do much.

Although, the party supporters whom reports said confronted the Gunmen by scaring them away with stones were worthy of commendations, there is still the need for them to take precautions against such an act in the future. Gunmen are dangerous elements; and they are evil beings whom anyone should not resist, rather than flee from them. So, unless the opportunity to resist or attack them is obvious, it would be the best decision to take to one's run away from them, instead of throwing stones at them when they have loaded guns with them.

By now, everyone needs to be joyous that the criminals did not reciprocate to the stones being thrown at them by the Youths at the congress venue by shooting at them.
