A presidential aspirant under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, Dele Momodu, has given a reason for not frequently visiting his hometown, Ihievbe, Owan East Local Government Area of Edo State.
The aspirant said his father had warned that he would be killed by witches and wizards in the town.
Momodu said this when he appeared as a guest on Arise TV‘s Morning Talk on Wednesday.
He said this while responding to a question on why he declared his presidential ambition in Ihievbe, Edo State.
Momodu said, “My father lived, worked, and died in Ile -Ife. When we asked him why he didn’t take us to Ihevbe, Edo, he said ‘because of witches and wizards’.
“When I told my mother that I was going there, in 2014, my mum wept. She said they will kill me. I said they are my people, if they kill me they can have me, and I went.
“I didn’t suddenly discover my root. If that’s the case, people wouldn’t have welcomed us the way they did. I appreciate the welcoming.
"There is nowhere (Bola) Tinubu or (Yemi) Osinbanjo will enter that I can not sleep. I am also strong in the South-East.”
