The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the Peoples Democratic Party-led administration of Governor Ademola Adeleke of an orchestrated plan to promote turmoil across the state with a view to getting at the opposition APC members and leaders through extra-judicial means.
Information has it that it was in preparation for the skillfully-planned cross-state crises that prompted Governor Adeleke to set up a phoney asset recovery squad few days ago following the outcome of one of his Executive Orders.
It was gathered that the composition of the questionable asset recovery squad are notorious PDP hoodlums who have been delegated to move around the state to attack, molest and possibly kill the APC members under the guise of recovering government property from them.
It was also learnt that some of the members of the APC Media Clusters who on the social media have been critical and consistently exposing the corruption-loving and mediocre government of the Adeleke administration have also been slated for abduction by the government asset recovery squad.
A strong intelligence revealed that some conventional security officers have equally been recruited by the government to join in carrying out the devilish assignment.
In his remark on the development, the Osun State chapter of the APC, Sooko Tajudeen Lawal, in a statement issued by the party’s Director of Media and Information, Chief Kola Olabisi, today, condemned the wicked intention of the Adeleke administration, observing that this plan is a testimony that those men of low character thinking for the government of the day in the state have completely run out of idea.
Lawal tasked all the statutory security outfits in the state to be wary of the plots of the state government to engage their men and officers for unconstitutional operations as such conspirations are capable of rocking the peace of the state.
He stated that Osun State is not a banana republic where the rule of force can replace the rule of law.
In Lawal’s words: “Governor Ademola Adeleke and his co-travellers should be held responsible for any form of a breakdown of law and order in Osun State.
“Does it not occur to Governor Adeleke that he is the one putting on a proverbial white apparel which shouldn’t be stained by palm-oil by this time in the political history of the state?
“We, as a party, know the direction to point at if any members of our party are either attacked, abducted or murdered by the government killing squad that would be going about as an asset recovery squad. Half a word is enough for the wise”, the Osun State APC chairman cautioned.
