The news is rife, particularly on social media over allegations of assault meted out to Mr Ogundokun Saheed and his friends by both Hon Ganiyu Abolarin and Owolabi Razaq of Kwara State House of Assembly. As a result of the beaten and assault, Mr Ogundokun was said to have sustained serious injury with his tooth removed, he lost consciousness and rushed to a nearby Anchor Hospital, Tanke, Ilorin, Kwara State where he later gained consciousness.
