. Urges IGP To Read Riot Act To CP
.Wants Army To Stay Clear Of Partisanship
A socio-political group, Osun Shall Rise Again (OSRA) on Monday asked the Osun State Commissioner of Police, Sunday Faleye, to arrest the lawlessness in the State with immediate effect.
The group noted that from Sunday, November 27, no fewer than eight persons have been allegedly killed by rampaging People’s Democratic Party (PDP) thugs who have been maiming and killing innocent persons since yesterday right from the venue of inauguration ceremony of Governor Ademola Adeleke
Saheed Bakare and Lanre Akeju, OSRA Secretary and Chairman respectively in a statement noted that while the police have refused to be used by the PDP-led government to harass and intimidate people, “we gathered reliably that the army has accepted to be willing tool in the hands of the PDP.
“To this end, we call on the Chief of Defence Staff, General Lucky Irabor to call the army at Ede to order, while appealing to the Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba to further charge the CP to take control of the situation.
“It will be recalled that this is not the first time citizens of Osun would be complaining of the wanton killing and destruction by the PDP thugs.
“You will recall that after the July 17 election, these same thugs went on rampage destroying the government properties and billboards of the then governor, including attacking government officials.
“While we call for a proper investigation of the ongoing siege on parts of Osun, we also call on the people people of Osun to rise against this challenge. After all, they cannot kill all of us in one day,” the group added.
