APC: Attack on Oyetola’s wife’s convoy ‘primitive, barbaric, shameful’


The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned Friday’s attack on the convoy of the First Lady of the state, Alhaja Kafayat Oyetola, by some suspected Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) thugs, describing it as primitive, barbaric, shameful, dangerous and wicked.

It was learnt that the suspected PDP political thugs waylaid the convoy of Mrs Oyetola at Owode in Edeland, where they threw stones at the convoy and used other dangerous weapons to effect the attack.

Information however, has it that it was the display of the proactive professional prowess of the statutory security officers that accompanied the First Lady that bungled the suspected preplanned attack from being degenerated into more than what it later turned out to be.

The state APC chairman, Prince Gboyega Famodun, in a statement by his Media Adviser, Chief Kola Olabisi, in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, on Saturday, stated that it was alarming that some disgruntled politicians could descend so low to the extent of needlessly injecting violence into politics.

Famodun wondered why the hitherto peaceful ancient Edeland could be turned into a perpetual abode of violence where the sacredness of the lives of fellow human beings means nothing to some desperado political power mongers.

The state APC chairman asked rhetorically why some suspected political thugs should make themselves cheap instruments of violence with which they are being used to heat up the state polity?

He explained that it is not proper for someone who is accused of theft to be romancing a baby goat as it’s on record that it was about two weeks ago that a pregnant woman and another indigene of Edeland were killed in a gruesome manner over a disagreement by some PDP members on the sharing formular of the leftover of the governorship campaign largesse provided by Senator Ademola Adeleke at Atapara/Oloba Ward 1 in Ede-North Local Government Council Area of the state.

Famodun observed that the Osun State PDP needs an urgent deliverance or surgical operation to separate its nature of being a seemingly inseparable pathological conjoined babies with violence and lies, describing the content of its press statement on the unsavoury incident, issued by one Oladele Bamiji, the state PDP media director, as a mere face-saving and afterthought which can only be believed by nincompoops.

The APC chairman stated further that there is no justifiable reason under the sun why the PDP should orchestrate the needless attack on the wife of the governor.

In Famodun’s words: “The attack on the governor’s convoy where some of her security officers sustained various degrees of injuries further confirmed and authenticated the list of the APC leaders that the state PDP was accused to have earmarked for attack since the INEC announced Adeleke as the winner of the July 19, 2022 governorship election in Osun State.”
