Osun APC To Adeleke: You Are Not Vested With Power To Obstruct The Police From Doing Their Job

The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has faulted the state Governor Ademola Adeleke over his accusation of a prominent chieftain of the party in the state, Senator Ajibola Bashiru, of importation of ‘some unauthorized policemen into Osun State to create confusion, mayhem and destabilize the peace and stability of the state’.

It would be recalled that Adeleke caused a statement to be issued yesterday where he made the concocted, unsubstantiated and spurious allegation against the immediate-past spokesperson of the Senate with a plea to the Inspector-General of Police to withdraw the policemen.

The statement from the state governor also alleged that Senator Ajibola Bashiru had submitted the list of the names of some of the top notchers of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state that have been slated for an arrest.

The Osun State APC acting chairman, Sooko Tajudeen Lawal, in a statement issued by the party’s Director of Media and Information, Chief Kola Olabisi, in Osogbo, the state capital today cautioned Adeleke to stop denigrating the institution of the police as he knows next to nothing about how the police perform their official duties.

Lawal who reminded Adeleke that Senator Bashiru, a Doctor of Law, is not in anyway a pushover in all aspects of legal endeavours knows his onions and knows his right hand from his left hand.

The state APC acting chairman advised Adeleke to limit himself to acrobatic dancing which is his core area of mastery of comparative advantage instead of poking his nose into a strange terrain of policing.

According to Lawal: “Why must Adeleke and his co-travellers be afraid of the shadow of a policeman if not that they have something to hide which makes them to be suspected fugitive to justice?

“Is Governor Adeleke in his wisdom saying that the police should not do their jobs whenever there is need for them to do so?

“What manner of peace is reigning in the state if not the peace of a graveyard after the blood of so many members of our party had been needlessly shed by the PDP goons in order for the PDP candidates to have undeserved victory at the polls?

“We are in support of the long arm of the law to deal decisively with whoever has run foul of the law of the land with impunity as was witnessed before the series of the elections in the state when no fewer than 30 members and supporters of our party were slaughtered like rams by the hired political hoodlums loyal to Adeleke and the PDP.

“It is no longer news in the state that some of the daredevil dangerous political thugs with which Adeleke and his co-travellers rigged the elections for all the PDP candidates are taking refuge in the Ede country home of Adeleke where they have become untouchable and living as if they are above the laws of the land.

“The gruesome massacre of some of the APC members by the militia arm of the Osun State PDP like Adetunji Adeyeye from Ward 10 in Atakumosa-East Local Government Council Area of the state; Oladele Moses a.k.a. ‘Alase’ from Ward 09 of Atakumosa-East; Oluwole Ade from Ward 09 of the same council; Omidokun Elijah of Ward 10 in Atakumosa-East and Ebenezer Alaro from Ward 09 in Ilesa-East Local Government are still fresh in the memory of the bereaved.

Others who were fell by the bullets of the PDP thugs in order to rig the elections for the PDP candidates are Ibrahim Taiwo Adebiyi a.k.a. ‘Omo Alhaja’ from Ward 05, Etiooni who was shot in the neck; Adex from Ward 09 in Ilesa-East; three commercial motorcycle riders were shot dead at Iwara Junction in Ilesa; Niyi Olajide from Ward 02, Atakumosa-East; Tope Samuel; Onigbogi Gbenga; Okunlola Job and many others.

It is on record that some principal members of the PDP in Osun State like the House of Representatives member representing Ijesa-South Federal Constituency, Hon Sanya Omirin; Hon Clement Olohunwa, the House of Representatives member representing Ila Federal Constituency; Senator Oyewumi Kamourudeen representing Osun-West Senatorial District; one Spain from Ikirun and the House of Assembly member from Iwo state constituency, all threatened to use violence to win the elections which they actually did.

The incident of the invasion and subsequent destruction of the APC Secretariats in both Ede-North and Ede-South local government council areas of the state by the PDP hoodlums will remain evergreen in the memories of our members.

Is Governor Adeleke saying that some of his identified thugs he used to kill our members should not be made to answer for their crimes?

If we can’t remember the names of all the thugs that Adeleke and his co-travellers used to rig the elections, the identities of the following are still fresh in the subconscious of our members:

Bode Itaapa, Solomon Adefioye Adedimeji, Solo Iwara, Emir Olalekan Ajagungbade, Carlos, Yinka Fasetire a.k.a. ‘Kenge’, Oladele Felix, Olumide Fisayo, Taiwo Amure Kekere, Kehinde Amure Kekere, Taiwo Amure Agba, Kehinde Amure Agba, Sunday Bugarly, Ojo Jagaban, Eruku, Opeyemi Olalemi, Saka Igboya, Saheed Orimade, Ado Igbona and Adewale Babawale.

When has it become a practice for a governor to dictate to the police how to do their work when the police is not an arm under the executive?

Adeleke and his co-travellers should shed their toga of executive rascality and brazen lawlessness and promptly allow the law to take its cause if they don’t have any skeletons in their cupboards.
