The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Iwo Federal Constituency, Osun State, has condemned in totality alleged attacks on some traditional rulers, following the visit of Nigeria’s vice-president, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo to the town on Friday.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Secretary of Campaign Committee of the APC for the Federal Constituency, Alhaji Dele Nafiu, a copy of which was sent to DAILY POST in Osogbo on Saturday .

According to the statement, the traditional rulers, led by Olofa of Offa in Kwara State, Oba Mufutau Gbadamosi were on their way to their hotels about an hour after the departure of Vice President’s
team when some hoodlums attacked their convoy and vandalized several vehicles.

The party said the latest attack on the revered monarchs and their entourage was the highest form of
irresponsibility and political brigandage ever displayed by any politician, warning that such act of violence would elicit dicey consequence if the perpetrators failed to put a stop to it.

“We must use this opportunity to tell those sponsoring violence in Iwo
and its environs that enough is enough.

“Before this latest attacks on our royal fathers, on Thursday February 7, some
thugs and members of the ADP attacked APC supporters on their way to
the palace of Oluwo after the massive campaigns in Feesu.

“Though, their planned attacks on the convoy of the APC Senatorial
candidate, Engr Adelere Oriolowo was foiled and they beat a hurried
retreat, it is significant to note that the aim of these sponsored
misguided elements was to maim those in the convoy of the senatorial
candidate of the APC.

“Two days before that, on Tuesday February 5, some of the ADP hoodlums
had gone to attack some innocent APC members around Morodo Area of
Iwo.

“However, we want to say enough is enough at this stage. We must sound
this note of warning that no party or individuals have monopoly of
violence.

“We hereby call on the security agencies to act fast. APC has
demonstrated its love for peace and harmony. For us, this is a game of
number. Any party that is confident of its numbers and its people need
not embark on violence. But should they insist on going this way, our
party shall not hesitate to employ all means necessary and legal to
defend its members. Let perpetrators of violence be warned,” the statement reads.

The Divisional Police Officer in the town, Mr Alalade Adio, who confirmed the incident to our correspondent, said the Police have apprehended three people in connection with the attack, and reiterated the resolve of the force to get to the root of the attack and bring perpetrators to book in due course.

“We are on top of the situation, we have arrested three persons in connection with the attacks, and investigation is ongoing to track down other people who were involved,” he said
