Political Thuggery: Osun APC Calls For Police Action

The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has charged the State Commissioner of Police, Patrick Kehinde Longe, to swing into action with a view to arresting, investigating and prosecuting the leaders and members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for allegedly viciously attacking APC members and their supporters in the state.

The state acting chairman of the APC, Tajudeen Lawal, in a statement issued by  Kola Olabisi, the party's State Director of Media and Information, appealed to the state Commissioner of Police and other security agencies in the state to urgently come to the aid of the APC members and leaders.

"One attribute of the Osun State PDP handlers is that they would be the ones attacking and killing our members and at the same time be the ones complaining.

"On several occasions, the thuggery-driven PDP leaders had openly boasted and threatened to deal with the APC members which were captured in audio and visual recordings in the social media without the police taking any known action to bring the suspects to book."

Lawal cited past incidents in Ikire, Atakumosa-East Local Government Council Area of the state and Ilesa where members of the APC were attacked viciously.

The state APC chairman disclosed that peace has taken flight from the hitherto most peaceful state in Nigeria since the sacked Governor Adeleke's administration was inaugurated in the state on November 27, 2022.

He hinted that there is hardly a week that there are no reported cases of extra-judicial killings of innocent people in the state by the PDP killer squad who have been operating in Osogbo in particular and the whole state in general unhindered.
