Osun: APC House Of Assembly Candidate, Oyegbade Escapes Assassination



–Accuses PDP Senatorial Candidate, Oyewumi

One of the House of Assembly candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the forthcoming general elections, Hon. Adebisi Oyegbade, AKA Bisi Ilu has said it is God that saved him from being killed by thugs who said were allegedly working for Akogun Lere Oyewumi.

Hon. Bisi Oyegbade who is contesting to represent the people of Irewole/Isokan state constituency at the House of Assembly accused Akogun Lere Oyewumi who is the Senatorial Candidate of the PDP of invading a peaceful meeting of the APC with thugs he imported into the State from Ibadan.

Hon. Oyegbade who was reacting to being called a thug by Akogun Lere Oyewumi said Lere Oyewumi is just feeling jittery of the outcome of the general elections because the people knows Hon. Oyegbade of the APC is the most popular candidate of all.

While calling on Lere Oyewumi to desist from the blackmail and name slander of the APC candidates in the area, the grassroots politician said the People’s Democratic Party through Lere Oyewumi are just looking for sympathy votes, hence the cheap blackmail on the APC candidates.

He challenged the PDP and Lere Oyewumi to produce evidences of the person they claimed was killed by thugs of the APC if truly their accusation is correct, stressing that the people of Irewole/Isokan/Ayedaade Federal constituency already know the PDP and Lere Oyewumi for thugry.

In his words, “I must let the people of Osun know that Akogun Lere Oyewumi is a known thug and someone who always import thugs from outside the State before and during any election. He is just trying to rope all the APC candidates and that is what they want to continue to do henceforth.

“The person claiming that I am a thug and that APC thugs killed a member of their party is the one who is the real thug. Lere Oyewumi has been known for thugry all his life and he is used to importation of thugs all the time. I challenge them to come up with evidences of the person they claimed we killed. Is there any video or picture to prove the allegation that the APC killed someone? What is the person’s name?

“I had to leave the scene of the violence with the next available motorcycle after about 8 of our vehicles with which we came to the venue had been vandalized by their thugs. How come I am now the person who attacked Lere Oyewumi. I appeal to the Federal Government, the Inspector General of Police and the Commissioner of Police in Osun to carry out their full investigation and make arrests of Akogun Lere Oyewumi and his thugs.

“Let me put it on records for the people of Osun to know that it is my late father, Late Chief Oyegbade Ajao, the first Elekuru of Ikire land that gave Akogun Lere Oyewumi his first political office helped him to secure the ticket in 1993. Dr Peter Babalola the former Chief of Staff to Dr Olagunsoye Oyinlola made Lere Oyewumi to become popular in politics and he paid it back with evil, he is not someone that should be taken serious.

“You will realize that in our State today there is so much insecurity, the twelve years of APC under Rauf Aregbesola and Gboyega Oyetola was known to be very peaceful and you will see that the PDP is yet to spend 6 months in office and the State is already in turmoil. There is killings and kidnapping all over the place, in Osogbo and other parts of the State”. Hon. Bisi Oyegbade stated.
