The thugs you failed to disarm after 2018 election are now turning against you, Osun PDP tells Oyetola
By Ekene Agbor, Osogbo
The Osun State Chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday said accused the state Governor, Gboyega Oyetola of breeding the thugs that attacked him and other Government officials while addressing#EndSARS protesters in Osogbo lasted weekend.
Oyetola, during a Statewide broadcast on Sunday, had said those who made attempt on his life are political thugs and hoodlums.
But the major opposition party in the state described the claims by Governor Oyetola as callous and fallacious.
The party, in a statement signed by Sunday Bisi, the Osun PDP Acting Chairman and made available to newsmen in Osogbo on Monday claimed that those who attacked Oyetola were thugs he failed to disarm after the 2018 Governorship election in the state.
“That the governor as the chief security officer of the state, lacked the nerve or security intelligence support to name those behind the purported attack on his life more than almost 48hours after the incident shows the depth of evil and small-mindedness in open thuggery Mr Oyetola and his henchmen in APC have inflicted on this noble State,” the statement read.
“It is pertinent to remind Oyetola of a similar attack carried out by thugs belonging to other faction of his party during the 2020 New year Eve celebration at Freedom Park Osogbo, where his security guards and thugs loyal to him had to expend several rounds of live bullets to get him spirited out of the scene.
“The state will also not forget in a hurry, how APC flooded Osun State with arrays of thugs when it became apparent that going to lose the 2018 governorship election in the Osun.
“The conducts of these thugs after the election till date is a testament to the fact that Oyetola is a beneficiary of the 2018 carnage visited on the state and has failed woefully to disarm the armed thugs in his party which they are now turning against him,” Bisi stated.
PDP urged the Governor to apologize to the helpless parents whose families have been thrown into perpetual mourning with the felling of their children by the bullets of his aides while again trying to ferry him to safety from the hands of his APC nurtured State Boys.
“The Osun PDP also by this medium express our deepest sympathy to the parents whose children were killed on Saturday in Osogbo by the governor bodyguards.
“It is most unfortunate to say the least, that such promising lads were cut down during legitimate agitation for an end to mindless killings of Nigerian youths by security operatives in the country, most especially officers and men of the Nigerian Police Force,” PDP stated.
PDP commiserated with the governor over the unwarranted assault, while calling on him to set all necessary types of machinery in motion to track down the attackers who instigated the assault on his person that degenerated into the killing of the two Nigerians in Osogbo on Saturday.
“We also demand the immediate arrest and prosecution of the trigger happy guards involved in the killing of the innocent youths,” PDP demanded.
