WATCH: How James Faleke Was Allegedly Sponsoring Protests Against APC Leaders After Ojodu LCDA Pry

The polity in Ojodu LCDA is getting heated up by the day after party members of the Hon James Abiodun Faleke caucus who are in support of Kafayat Funmi Layeni (KFL), a chairmanship aspirant took to the streets to protest the party decision.

After the APC local government council primary elections in Ojodu LCDA was nullified across all the wards, a source had revealed to Ino Online News that David Olusegun Odunmbaku had been selected by the party leaders to bear the APC flag in the forthcoming LG elections in Lagos.

This decision, however, didn't go down well with the Faleke sponsored team comprising of Funmi Layeni, Tunji Kogbodoku vying for the councillorship slot in ward A and a few others.

A report reaching Info Online News pointed at James Faleke being the brain behind the disruption of the polls across all the wards in the LCDA.

Faleke and his aspirants protested leadership decision to acme while hauling insults at Tinubu, his benefactor for over 2 decades, our reporter who monitored the protest gathered.

They were heard chanting Tinubu Ole! Baba Eto Ole! Odunmbaku Ole! said to mean Tinubu the thief! Baba Eto the thief! Odunmbaku the thief!

As reported on Saturday, some thugs allegedly sponsored by Faleke harassed and attempted to beat up one Hon. Opeyemi Apatira, a councillorship aspirant in ward A.

Another video surfaced online where one of the protesters was caught confessing that "Faleke instructed his supporters to go on protest and haul insult at him and Asiwaju to coerce Asiwaju into believing falsely that his supporters are agitating."

Faleke and his team members didn't answer our reporter when he put a call through for questioning.
