Yesterday, Desmond Elliot was attacked by hoodlums for refusing to give them money.

According to the Premium Times News, the attack happened at Akerele junction in Surulere around 3 pm on the day. The windshield of his vehicle was reportedly destroyed having failed to respond to the request of the hoodlums who wanted him to stop.

Elliot was rescued from the situation by nearby supporters who were at PU20, Ward 7, located close to the area. After this, Premium Times confirmed more gunshots that invited reinforcement from the police.
