ONDO: APC governorship aspirant who recently alleged threat to life dies of chest pain

Paul Akintelure, a governorship hopeful of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo, is dead.

Oladapo Akintelure, his spokesperson, confirmed the death in a statement released on Tuesday.

Akintelure was said to have died in the wee hours of Tuesday, days after raising an alarm over alleged threat to his life.

The Ondo governorship poll is slated for November 16, 2024.

The governorship hopeful reportedly complained of chest pain hours before his passing.

Akintelure, who was a medical doctor, hailed from Igbotako, Okitipupa LGA of Ondo.

Last Thursday, he sounded the alarm over an alleged threat to his life.

“Initially, I hoped these incidents would dissipate over time, yet regrettably, they have escalated to pose a serious threat to my life,” he said in a statement.

“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 to stand together as one, regardless of our differences.”
