The All Progressive Congress (APC) Oyo State Chapter has attributed the Wednesday killing of one of its prominent leader in Ona Ara local government Chief Babatunde Arasi Oreitan to the People’s Democratic Party killer gangs which the party claimed is back to the state in full swing.
In a release issued by APC, Oyo state spokesperson Dr Azeez Olatunde, “the government of Engr Seyi Makinde and his party has been targeting leaders of the leading opposition party APC for some few months of coming to power which was evident in today’s killing of Alhaji Oreitan.”
The party stated that one of the prime achievement of APC led government in the state between 2011-2019 was adequate security put in place by former Governor Abiola Ajimobi during whose tenure the state was free from all security difficulties for eight years of his government.
The statement calls on security agents in the state to ensure that the identity of the killer’s of the late party stalwart is unravel in order to curtail such future offences.
APC Oyo State Chapter also condemned the actions of the state government as it failed to allowed elected local government officials returns to their offices despite numerous court judgements and pronouncements especially the recent letter written to the nation’s number one law officer, Abubakar Malami to Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde.
