The Ademola Adeleke Campaign Organisation has cried out over alleged destruction of billboards of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) by agents of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
The campaign organization also claimed that campaign convoy of the governorship candidate of the PDP, Senator Ademola Adeleke, was breached by a suspected attacker in cream coloured unnumbered Toyota Venza.
Olawale Rasheed, Director, Media & Publicity, in a statement, said some hoodlums last night rained bullets on the country home of the Adeleke family until they were repelled.
According to him, “Now, ongoing all over the state is the vandalisation of billboards and campaign posters of the PDP candidate. This act of destruction by the APC thugs is evident at Osogbo and other parts of the state.
“As we prepare to make official reports to the security agencies, we alert the general public to the increasing desperation of the APC in the countdown to the governorship election.
“We have conducted our campaign with utmost decorum and compliance with the ‘vote and not fight’ principle. We remain committed to peaceful campaign and electoral processes. We however invite local and international democratic forces to note the deliberate efforts of the APC to plunge Osun State into chaos.
“We call on security agencies to take note of the increasing onslaught against opposition leaders and the dangers this portends for our democracy. The police and other security agents should curtail and rein in forces of chaos and violence for the stability of our nascent democracy.
“The people of Osun State are entitled to their democratic rights to vote and be voted for. Our people will never be cowed or scared from exercising their democratic rights to reject the inhuman government of APC. No amount of threat and attacks will stop the imminent defeat facing the APC in Osun State.
“We urge our people to remain undaunted and to prepare their PVCs to vote out APC’s darkness and enthrone PDP’s light.”
