Osun State Chapter of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) has Condemned in strong terms the attack on members of the party in Oriade Local Government Council Area of the state.
Some members of ADP were attacked on Friday evening in Ijebu-Jesa, headquarter of Oriade Local Government by thugs suspected to belong to one of major political party in the state.
It would be recalled that the gubernatorial candidate of ADP, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti who was the Secretary to the state government until last week Monday recently decamped from the All Progressives Congress (APC), which is the ruling party in the state.
Speaking on the development, the Publicity Secretary of the party in the state, Elder Ayo Fakeye. said such barbaric attack ought to have gone with the past.
“The era of imposition and attack on members of the opposition political parties ought to belong to the relics of our nation’s political history.
“But in a situation where members of our party were attacked during a meeting in Ijebu-Jesa, to me, such crude attack is unjustifiable,” Fakeye stressed.
The ADP spokesman therefore called on the security agencies in the state to investigate the unfortunate incident and bring the perpetrators to justice.
“I want to use this opportunity to task the various officers and men of the security agencies in the state to investigate the unwarranted attack on our party members and bring the perpetrators of the dastardly act to book,” Fakeye further stated.
The senior party official however charged members of the party not to be discouraged, as the attack is a signal to the fact that success is certain for the party come September 22 governorship election.
“My appeal to the members of our party in the state is that they should see the recent attack on our members as a sign that ADP has become the party to beat in the fast approaching September 22 governorship election.”
He therefore wish the victims of the attack, quick recovery.
