Akeredolu Mobilizes Thugs To Tribunal Sitting In Akure
The Governor of Ondo State, Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN has allegedly mobilised large number of thugs to the venue of Ondo Gubernatorial Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Akure, the Ondo State capital.
This is contained in a statement issued by the media team of the PDP in the PDP state.
At the hearing this morning, Tuesday, 8th December, 2020, APC thugs under the leadership of one “Chemical” bombarded the venue, harassing, molesting, beating up, shooting sporadically into the air and attacking anyone perceived to be supporter of the PDP and its Candidate, Mr Eyitayo Jegede, SAN. Mr. Sunday Oladunmoye is still receiving treatments from machete cut wounds he sustained from this group of thugs.
They were parading the vicinity of the Court in a tinted Toyota Corolla car. Others were members of the Taxi Unit of National Union of Road Transport Workers( NURTW) with instructions from their master Jacob Adebo (Idajo) to cause pandemonium during the sitting.
As early as 8.30a.m this morning, the Petitioners, Eyitayo Jegede and the PDP represented by its State Chairman, Alhaji Fatai Adams, led other PDP leaders to the Court.
But shortly thereafter, the APC thugs caused so much panic and confusion within the arena. It took the combined efforts of the Army and Policemen to restore order.
The PDP wishes to call on security agencies to live up to this fresh threat to law and order in the State. Resorting to violence will not deter the PDP and its candidate from pursuing this Petition to its conclusive end. Neither can this act of barbarism scare the Judges from the course of Justice.
Present at today’s inaugural hearing were; Engr Clement Faboyede, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, Tokunbo Modupe, Adomola Babalola, Hon.Suffy Uguoji, Engr. Adebowale, Hon. Akinsoyinu and Tokunbo Jegede. State Executive Committee Members, Tola Alabere, Oluseye Olujimi amongst others.
The ruling APC denied the allegation and accused the PDP of insincerity.
The Ondo APC spokesman, Alex Kalejaye said know nothing about the incident.
