Five days after raising the alarm, Ondo governorship aspirant, Akintelure, dies


A governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress(APC) in Ondo State, Dr. Paul Akintelure, is dead.

Akintelure died five days after he raised the alarm on alleged threats to his life.

He died in the early hours of Tuesday, according to informed sources.

Akintelure, who was the running mate of late Governor Rotimi Akeredolu on the platform of the then Action Congress of Nigeria, had said the threats to his life were both direct and indirect.

The former senatorial aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who is from Igbotako in Okitipupa Local Government Area of Ondo State, said in a statement by his spokesman, Oladapo Akintelure, on March 21, 2024: “Initially, I hoped these incidents would dissipate over time, yet regrettably, they have escalated to pose a serious threat to my life.

“The threats against me only strengthen my resolve to stand up for what is right and just.

“I will not allow fear to dictate our path forward.

“Let us embrace peace, progress, and unity.

“Our collective strength lies in our will to stand together as one, regardless of our differences.”
