The Osun State Command of the Nigerian Police and other security agencies have been called upon to as a matter of urgency, bring to book, perpetrators of the dastardly act of destruction carried out on the Campaign office of the Osun Central Senatorial Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Osogbo, warning that such ugly occurrence if left unchecked, is capable of throwing the state into unimaginable crisis.
The Osun State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party in a statement on Saturday, described the attack on the campaign office of its candidate in Osun Central, Olubiyi Fadeyi, as highly provocative, thoughtless and dangerous considering the volatile security situation in the state.
The PDP reports that the Osun Central Senatorial Campaign Office of its Candidate, Olubiyi Fadeyi (Ajagunla) situated along the Okefia-Old Garage area of the State Capital was at the early hours of Friday, attacked and vandalized by political thugs working for the outgoing APC and it’s Senatorial Candidate for Osun Central Senatorial District, Mr Ajibola Basiru in particular.
Properties worth several millions of naira were also destroyed at the campaign office, with cars, billboards, computers and other office equipment badly damaged during the attack.
The PDP charged the police to do everything under the law to bring perpetrators of the attack to justice without delay, as the party may not be able to hold down its members forever in the wake of such a dangerous anomaly, especially when the culprits are pointedly identifiable in the state.
The statement described Osun Central Senatorial PDP candidate in the 2023 general elections, Mr Olubiyi Fadeyi(Ajagunla), as a peace-loving philanthropist, who has never been found wanting in his conduct as a private entity and also as a Candidate of the party. The PDP then wondered why the Apc would target him for the attack.
While reminding the outgoing APC of the danger embedded in the latest turn of events as orchestrated by the doomed defeat of Senator Ajibola Basiru, the PDP assured its Candidate, Olubiyi Fadeyi of unflinching support in his determination to bring the true value of representation to the doorsteps of the people of the Senatorial District.
“As we approach the 2023 general election, no amount of unprovoked attacks will deter our Candidates from working with the electorate from condemning APC and its hopeless Candidates to the dustbin of history in the state” the PDP assured.
The PDP however emphasized the need for security agencies to arrest the violent trend being introduced to the polity again by the APC just as was the case in the recently held Governorship Election in the state, failure of which the party warned, will blow no one any good.
