The All Progressives Congress (APC) Osun State has berated the opposition PDP in the state over its comment on #EndSars protesters’ attack on Governor Gboyega Oyetola and his entourage, describing PDP’s claim as illogical, empty and far from the reality.
Osun PDP had claimed that “political thugs armed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) were the attackers of governor Oyetola’s convoy in the Saturday’s attack in Osogbo.”
APC noted that it was absolutely unfortunate for the PDP to have that irrational thinking.
The APC directed the acting Chairman of PDP to immediately visit the Police Command in the state and tell the security officers all he knew about what transpired on Saturday’s attack.
“It’s stupid to sell a dummy, and expecting that the good people of Osun will believe your cock and bull story that Oyetola sponsored hoodlums to attack himself.
“Please tell that to the marines. The Governor is a peace-loving man. He walked with the protesters until the agents of darkness infiltrated the group and wreak havoc. That’s hard sell,” thd APC said.
APC said further that, “it is even better for PDP in Osun to keep mute than fabricating unfounded lies purposely to misinform the publics,” adding that “the opposition’s claim not only lacks merit but confused and absurd.”
This was contained in a statement issued from the party’s Directorate of Publicity, Research and Strategy and signed by its Director, Kunle Oyatomi and made available to newsmen on Monday in Osogbo, the state capital.
Oyatomi explained that, it was absolutely illogical for the opposition to even think of such, and that it was not even possible for a reasonable person to instigate or invite his or her friends to attack him or her to the point of assassination attempt on their sponsors, adding that it was only a confused mind or group that will have that dastardly thought.
“It is pertinent to remind the public that Osun APC had earlier on Saturday, raised alarm that sponsored political thugs and hoodlums have hijacked the peaceful protest organised by the main protesters,” the party said.
“Without mincing words, security agencies have been called to investigate the attack so that those sponsored hoodlums and their sponsors will be brought to justice to serve as a deterrent,” he stated.
