Members of the All Progressive Congress who are opposed to the alleged poor management of the affairs of the party in Osun on Thursday called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately call to order those insistent on killing opponents.
NPO Reports had earlier reported that some gunmen invaded the venue of The Osun Progressives (TOP) meeting shooting sporadically.
The incident had sent panic down in areas such as Olaoluwa, Olaiya, Gbodofon and other adjoining areas on Thursday.
Mr. Adelowo Adebiyi, TOP Chairman said the attack confirmed the alarm he raised on November 15, that some people were plotting to assassinate leaders of the group.
He said that it was high time the President and leaders of security agencies intervene in the crisis rocking the party.
Adebiyi alleged that the political thugs were sent by the other faction of the party.
““Thugs believed to have been sent by the Governor Adegboyega Oyetola’s led IleriOluwa faction of the party invaded the weekly meeting of TOP around 2.10pm today. I was just addressing the caucus when the thugs started shooting. This led to a stampede as APC members scampered for safety.
“Luckily for us, there are no major casualties as members ran into the main building for safety. But some of our people were wounded,” he said.
The chairman said that security agencies in the state should be alive to their responsibility of ensuring the safety of lives and properties of the people.
“They should not wait until one of us is killed before they act on our petitions and reports.
“We will officially inform the Commissioner of Police, the AIG Zone XI, and the State Commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps on today’s attack,” he said.
