Suspected hoodlums have burnt two offices of the All Progressives Congress(APC) in Ede, the country home of Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke.
It was gathered the hoodlums were protesting the verdict of the Osun Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, which upturned the victory of Adeleke.
According to The Nation, the hoodlums razed down the APC office in the Ede-South while that of Ede North was destroyed with APC members sustaining various degrees of injuries during the attack.
A statement by the APC leaders in Ede, signed by chairman apex leader, Dr. Mufutao Oyewale alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) in the State recruited a militia group to create unrest in the community by paralyzing economic activities to protest the Tribunal’s verdict.
He said: “Along the streets of Ede in particular and the state in general, to see dangerous political thugs dangling and brandishing new cutlasses and guns all in the name of enjoyment of amity with the state government.
“We enjoined the Commissioner of Police and other sister security agencies in the state to come to the aid of the APC members and leaders in Ede who are being hunted by the PDP thugs like animals in the bush.”
Also, another group of hoodlums attacked the Tinubu/Shettima’s campaign office in Ilesha on Monday morning, destroying property within the premises.
Reacting, Osun acting PDP chairman, Dr Adekunle Akindele, denied the allegations.
He said: “Osun PDP members only engage in peaceful protests all over the State. Our members did not attack anybody. Osun APC is raising false alarm simply because it was in trouble over its attempt to steal a popular mandate through the backdoor.”
