Oyetola Behind Shooting At Osun APC Secretariat – Aregbesola Group


A faction of the All Progressives Congress in Osun State, backed by the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, has accused Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of being behind the attempted attack on its members on Thursday.

Factional chairman of the group, Lowo Adebiyi, made the allegation while addressing newsmen in Osogbo, the state capital.

Naija News reports that suspected thugs attacked members of the faction during their weekly meeting at Oranmiyan House, Gbongan Road, Osogbo.

It was learned that the thugs bearing guns arrived at the venue in a black Sienna Bus around 2.09pm, fired shots into the air and moved towards the entrance to the building.


But the factional APC chairman in the state, Razaq Salinsile, was said to have walked up to the gunmen and stopped them from attacking the politicians.

Reacting, Adebiyi alleged that the political thugs were sent to kill his members by governor Oyetola, describing the attack as an assassination.

He, however, asked President Muhammadu Buhari and the Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, to immediately investigate the attack and bring the perpetrators to book.

He said, “The thugs believed to have been sent by the Governor Adegboyega Oyetola’s led IleriOluwa faction of the party invaded the weekly meeting of TOP around 2.10pm today. I was just addressing the caucus when the thugs started shooting. This led to a stampede as APC members scampered for safety. Luckily for us, there were no major casualties as members ran into the main building for safety.

“But some of our people were wounded. We need to state that officers of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps who usually provide security for the weekly meeting were not on the ground. Because of the absence of the NSCDC officers, the IleriOluwa group sent thugs to attack us.”
