Ismail Omipidan, Chief Press Secretary To Governor Gboyega Oyetola

Following the invasion of Oranmiyan House located along Gbongan/Ibadan expressway, Gbodofon Area, Osogbo by suspected hoodlums during the weekly meeting of the members of The Osun Progressives (TOP), a Caucus of the All Progressives Congress, the Press Secretary to Governor Gboyega Oyetola, Mr Ismail Omipidan has told TOP to stop acting script.

Omipidan said members of TOP led by their Chairman, Elder Adelowo Adebiyi were only acting out a script already prepared by them.

CityMirrorNews reports that Oranmiyan is the venue of the weekly meeting of the factional group of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), The Osun Progressives (TOP).

Some armed men Suspected to be political hoodlums had around 2:10PM attacked members of the APC during the weekly meeting of TOP.

Addressing the press shortly after the attack, Adebiyi said the attack confirms the alarm it raised on Monday that the Governor’s men were out to assassinate its leaders.

He wondered why the Governor’s camp will be after the lives of fellow party members because of their assiduous efforts are revitalising the APC in Osun

Reacting to the TOP’s allegations, Oyetola spokesman said, Elder Adebiyi is known for an incorrigible lies urging the Public to disregard any information emanating from Adebiyi who he described as discredited fellow, saying the TOP Chairman had lied several time and this latest allegation is one of such lies.

He however urged the former Governor of the state and current Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola to disown Adebiyi so as not to rubbish his office.

He said: “Former acting chairman, Osun All Progressives Congress, APC, Elder Adelowo Adebiyi is a discredited fellow and should therefore not be taken serious. In law, if a witness bears false witness once, no testimony from such a fellow would ever be accepted. But in the case Adebiyi has lied several times and this latest allegation is one of such lies.

“My principal is not a violent man and will never support any violence in whatever form. I strongly urge our former governor and current Interior minister, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, to disown Adebiyi before he rubbishes his good office.

“If by his admission, he is saying personnel of NSCDC had always provided security cover for them, on whose authority were they doing it then and who ordered their withdrawal today ?

“We want the concerned security agencies in the State to watch Adebiyi closely, as he appears to be up to something sinister.

“Finally, I have intelligence report that Abdulrasaq Salinsile, the former APC Secretary in the State, met with one of those that were alleged to have carried out today’s attack. I want to believe they are acting out a script already prepared by them.

“Recall that during the State Congress, that was how they lied that someone, who many journalists who covered the Congress at the Stadium saw, led a purported attack on them at Ogo Oluwa.”
