A plethora of members of the APC in Osun members known as the ‘Osun Progressives’ have written to the State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola to probe the attempt on the life of an aide of the Minister of the Interior, Olateju Adunni in Osogbo on March 28, 2021.
The group expressed grave concern at the rising insecurity in the state as well as cult clashes and kidnappings in Iwaraja and Ibokun.
The letter read: “The March 28 attack on the Personal Assistant to your predecessor who is the current Minister of Interior, Mr Olateju Adunni, gives us reason to feel sad and we are afraid of what may be coming.
“By his account, which we believe your honour must have read, he declared it was an assassination attempt on him as declared by the assailants themselves.
“The curious issue in his narration was that the venue of the attack was populated by APC stalwarts and members who were invited to celebrate the birthday of an honourable member. So, the whole event, the birthday party and the attack were that of the APC.
“What should have provoked it? Have we reached a point in the APC whereby differences will be settled by assassination? If we do this to ourselves, who says the opposition PDP cannot latch onto it and deal with us severely? We refer to some intra APC attacks that has happened in recent times and we wonder if we have morality to still refer to the PDP as the nest of killers?”
