Oyo State chapters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) are currently at loggerheads over alleged killing of four members of PDP in the State.
Oyo News reports that four members of the PDP in Ibadan were allegedly killed by some APC assailants on Thursday.
PDP in its reactions said its members were killed in Ibadan North-East Local Government by thugs suspected to be loyalists of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Senator Teslim Folarin.
The governor’s media team, which called on security agencies to immediately arrest Folarin and all his boys who masterminded the killing of innocent PDP members, said that the incident has finally vindicated the general belief that the APC candidate is a violent man and a kingpin of thugs and brigands.
A statement signed by the Special Assistant (Print Media) to the governor, Moses Alao, lashed out at Folarin and the APC for their penchant to orchestrate violence and disturb the peace of Oyo State in the name of politics.
The statement called on the Police to thoroughly investigate the incident with a view to bringing the culprits to book, stating that the blood of the innocent people slain in Ibadan South-East will forever cry for vengeance.
The governor’s campaign media team equally warned residents of the state to “shine their eyes” on Saturday and not to allow Folarin, a disciple of Ex-Osun State Governor, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola, who allegedly wrecked his state when he served as governor in Osun.
The group called on Oyo State voters not to elect an individual who is taking notes and direction from an ex-governor whose legacy in his state include meaningless and monumental debts, with workers and pensioners in anguish, sorrow and endless gnashing of teeth.
Earlier, APC had accused PDP thugs of killing itsmembers in Ibadan South-East Local Government Area.
The party says members were injured while the party’s assembly candidate in constituency 2, Wariths Alawuje, escaping by the whiskers.
