Due to the disagreement between members of All Progressives Congress (APC), Oyo State Chapter loyal to former Governor of the State, Late Lam Adesina under the auspices of “Unity Forum” and other members loyal to incumbent Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi under the auspices of “SENACO”, members of Unity Forum have raised an alarm over alleged threat to their lives by people believed to be loyalists of Governor Abiola Ajimobi.
The group raised the alarm in a letter sent to President Muhammodu Buhari to intimate him over threat to their lives as a result of disagreements between the members of Unity Forum and Governor Ajimobi over the way the Governor is solely running the affairs of the party in the State.
A statement by the Secretary of the Unity Forum, Dr. Wasiu Olatubosun, explained that many members of the group “have been receiving threats of attack and death if they dare turn up at the state congress of the party on Saturday May 19.”
The letter reads: ”We are constrained to direct this letter to Your Excellency, President Muhammodu Buhari, because of the urgent need for you to use your good office as the Chief Security Officer of the country to intervene in the unrelenting threat to the lives of our members and the threat to public peace by individuals and groups who surreptitiously identify themselves as defending Governor Abiola Ajimobi’s interest in the APC.
“As you are well aware, since the unfortunate incident at the secretariat of the APC on Saturday May 5, 2018 when hoodlums invaded the venue of a stakeholders meeting of the party and attacked law abiding elders and members of the party, our members have daily come under threats to their lives.
“The threat to our lives has been reported to security agencies in the state. However it continued unabated. A new dimension has been added to these threats. Many members of the group have been receiving threats of attack and death if they dare turn up at the state congress of the party on Saturday May 19″.
