— Says They Will Not Be Cowed By Violence

Osun State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has condemned the alleged attack on its Secretariat by hoodlums suspected to be political thugs.

PDP described the attack as an insult on its party saying they would not be cowed by violence.

Hoodlums suspected to be political thugs had attacked the PDP Secretariat located along Bike junction, Osogbo Ikirun road earlier this morning.

The Governorship Candidate of the party during the last gubernatorial election, Senator Ademola Adeleke, who had been out of the country over the years on Tuesday stormed the state in funfairs.

The Chairman of the party, Honourable Sunday Bisi while reacting said “the party strongly condemn the unprovoked attack on its Secretariat by political thugs in a desperate attempt to scare party faithfuls from an important event scheduled to hold on the premises today.

“As a major stakeholder in the affairs of Osun State, committed to law and order, we find the assault on our Secretariat an act of panting cowardice and desperation taken too far. Those who carried out the dastardly act and their backers should be ashamed of themselves because they ended up showing to the world how evil and dangerous they are to our democracy.

“Our journey as a party is a journey to the promised land and no amount of attack or intimidation will scare us away from pursuing the rescue efforts of our dear State from a party that has mismanaged it over the last 10 years. Take it and let it sink, Osun PDP and the good people of Osun State can no longer be intimidated.

“Notwithstanding our resolve to be peaceful in our push for a new Osun we must warn that we won’t condone unprovoked attack on our facilities or members. All political urchins in the hands of rejected looters should take note or they have themselves to blame in the end. This we reiterate, is not a joke.

“We are also by this release call on the state Commissioner of Police, the Director of DSS and other security agencies to immediately set machineries in motion to investigate and track down the source of the attack on our Secretariat and fish the perpetrators.

“As much as it is in the culture of our party supporters to show restraint in the face of the unnecessary provocation,, we ask security agencies to ensure adequate protection of our party’s assets and members. This will ensure confidence of our people in the security agencies to forestall breaking endurance limit of the people.”
