Osun Govt Says It is Dangerous Signal
Govt Says It is Dangerous Signal
The Osun State Government has described the midnight murder of the Special Adviser on Special Duties and Principal Private Secretary to the Governor of Edo State, Comrade Olaitan Oyerinde, as another manifestation of the recent alarm that there is an orchestrated plot to cause violence through the killing of certain political officer holders.
The government said in a statement signed by the Director, Bureau of Communications & Strategy, Office of the Governor, Mr. Semiu Okanlawon, that ‘’the dastardly killing of Oyerinde confirms our fears and suspicion that the ‘accident’ in the convoy of Governor Adams Oshiomhole was a plot to assassinate the Governor by the same agents of do-or-die politics who believe that the State of Edo must be ‘captured’ from the Action Congress of Nigeria come the next governorship election.
‘’Given the recent wave of events in the South-West geo-political zone of the country and the State of Edo in the last few weeks, we are compelled to call on the security agencies to be alive to their responsibilities of protecting the lives of the entire citizenry and their leaders.
‘’We are also compelled to call on President Goodluck Jonathan to remember that the people of this geo-political zone had witnessed an unprecedented peace since the ACN took over the control of the affairs of the states in the zone and Edo in the South-South zone.
It is therefore incumbent on the President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, to call to order those whose utterances and actions in recent times have pointed to glaring plots to stoke the fire of confusion.
In this, we strongly refer to statements credited to the former National Vice Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in the South-West, Mr. Segun Oni, that PDP would make Osun ungovernable.
Another in the series of such plots is the threat by a former senator, Iyiola Omisore, to attack the convoy of the Governor of the State of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.
‘’Apart from these open threats, it is on record that the State of Osun was planned to be a theatre of mayhem a few weeks ago with the plot to use religion to ignite violence, but for the intervention of God and the conviction of the good people of the state in our administration as one with respect for equity.’’
The statement also recalled that before Oyerinde was killed in the early hours of Friday, the Edo State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr. Louis Odion, had raised the alarm over an alleged threat against his life, noting that barely a week after ‘’the orchestrated accident in the convoy of Governor Oshiomhole, his Special Adviser was killed in this brutal manner.’’
