Men of Ondo State Police Command on Monday invaded the residence of Otunba Johnson Fasawe in Owo town and disrupted a meeting of the Action Congress (AC) holding in the place.

Narrating their ordeal in the hands of the police, the chief convener of the meeting, Dr. Akerele Adu, displayed one of the walkie-talkie forgotten by the police at the venue of the operation, adding that the men were overzealous.

Adu said that the police team led by the Assistant Commissioner in charge of Operation, Michael Bodunde and the Officer in Charge of Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB), whose name he could not remember, came in two Peugeot 504 Saloon cars marked ONDO AA157 SUA and NPF 5082B when the meeting was about to start.

He stressed that apart from the two cars that were parked in front of Fasawe’s gate, two lorry load of anti-riot policemen were stationed at the junction leading to the venue of he meeting.
Dr. Adu said the men left after the elders had explained to them that the meting was a private one, inside a private apartment of a chieftain, which should not attract any need for police permit.
The party chieftain said though the policemen left without arresting anybody, those who gathered for the meeting left hurriedly for fear of being arrested.

The meeting, according to Adu, was convened to review the performance of the party in the last general election and to chart a new way forward.
He said the elders of the party were disturbed by the frosty relationship between the chairman of the party, Comrade Sola Iji and Hon Ademola Adegoroye, who had pitched his tent with Governor Olusegun Agagu.

Adu said the elders of the party were reaching out to all members to resolve the differences among them. The Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Aremu Adeniran, when contacted over the incident, said that the story was not true, adding that the story was just an imaginary method cooked up by the party chieftains to discredit the police.

Otasowie means evening life is better than morning life. There is an error in your “evening life is better than evening life”?

Sokari doesn’t mean joy. Joy is Biobela. Go to the village and ask the meaning of the name.
