‘PDP Is Using The Police Against Us’ —South West AC


Just as the Osun State Police Command has declared some members of the Action Congress (AC) wanted over a bomb blast in the state last June, the South-West wing of the party has charged the police authorities to come out with their findings.

Just as the Osun State Police Command has declared some members of the Action Congress (AC) wanted over a bomb blast in the state last June, the South-West wing of the party has charged the police authorities to come out with their findings.

Those declared wanted by the police include the party chairman in the state, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti; the secretary, Prince Gboyega Famodun and Engineer Rauf Aregbesola’s publicity secretary, comrade Gbenga Fayemiwo

According to a statement signed by the Publicity Secretary of the state AC, Ayo Afolabi, and made available to newsmen, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state has started using the police investigations into the bomb blast as a political weapon against the opposition.

The statement read: “We are calling on the Inspector-General of Police to make the position of things clear on the Osun secretariat bomb blast matter, as the governor Oyinlola-led PDP government has been using it as a political tool to deal with members of AC.”

The South-West AC alleged that the manner its members are being arrested and declared wanted by the police in Osun state, has indicated that there was a political motive behind the moves.

The party maintained that since the case had been referred to Abuja, by the police, and the invitation of its governorship candidate, Engineer Rauf Aregbesola, and two others, to Abuja, in June, there was need for the police in Osun state to allow their Abuja headquarters come out with the result of their investigations, rather than hounding AC members.

The party stressed that the ongoing “arbitrary arrests and detention of AC members in Osun state, and subsequent chasing around of others,” amounts to “political vendetta being orchestrated by the Osun state government”.

The statement added that: “It is an operational misnomer for the Osun State Police Command to be acting in whatever manner on a case that has been taken over by the Force Headquarters in Abuja”.

The party lamented that the Osun State Police Command, in continuation of its manhunt for members of the Action Congress in the state, has declared three leaders of the party wanted, adding that AC “is disturbed about the development in view of the trend of events”.

The South-West AC “condemned the recent arrest and detention of Mr Layi Oyeduntan and Honourable Sunday Akere, on the so called bomb blast with the recent declaration of Alhaji Moshood Adeoti, Osun AC Chairman; Prince Gboyega, AC Secretary and Mr. Gbenga Fayemiwo, among others, by the Osun State Police Command, over the so-called bomb blast “.
