Action congress (AC) in Osun State has accused trhe Oyinlola led PDP Government of vendetta and bad faith in the matter of a hoax allegation of bomb throwing preferred against its detained leaders, Alhaji Layi Oyeduntan and Hon. Sunday Akere.
Chairman of the Party in the State Alhaji Moshood Olalekan Adeoti in a statement said the need to concoct a story round the explosion incident and make members of his party in particular and other opposition in general liable was a ploy to keep the opposition in disarray perpetually.
It was the believe of Gov. Oyinlola and his cohorts that once they can not get the AC to stop demanding for its mandate stolen on April 14/15, 2007 and obvious inability to win its members into the monster of a party called PDP, then all things should be done to get them out of existence or make life difficult for them, Adeoti said.
Alhaji Adeoti who pointed out in a press release this afternoon that this has been the crux of all wicked and inhuman tactics bordering on gross violation of the rule of law, human rights abuses and curtailing of people’s liberty, especially that of the opposition.
The AC boss who noted the high level of intolerance of Oyinlola said this is main driving force behind his attempt to run the opposition out of existence or out of the political space of Osun, having failed woefully in the bid to cajole, bribe or blackmail the AC members to join his evil contraption called PDP.
Adeoti who condemned the Oyinlola government for using under-hand methods in the case of Oyeduntan and Akere, like the others before them said the way the police and the judiciary is handling leave much to be desired, a situation which show heavy bias on their against the accused persons.
He said it amounted to gross violation of a person’s right to arrest him in the unorthodox manner while the ‘trial of the application for trial’ is more of an abdacabra where you see less as you look more, he added.
According to him, a governor that is using unconventional means bordering on compromising the police and the judiciary to keep the opposition in particular and the people in general out of circulation before he could rule, is not worthy of such high office, indeed, he is inept and would have resigned in a civilized society.
Adeoti who lamented the contrived long incarceration of Oyeduntan and Akere blamed Oyinlola for manipulating both the police and the judiciary for the unconstitutional long detention which is simply meant to meant to massage his bruise ego and break their spirit.
He pointed out that except for Osun State which Oyinlola has turned to his fiefdom, there is no democratic setting whereby accused person is detained longer than the constitutional provision where due process and law are abused through manipulative means.
He wondered if it is legal and morally right for a magistrate that has heard the bail application orally and asked that such should be put in writing, to now withhold his ruling and advise that the accused persons’ counsels should approach the high court for bail, yet he continues to hear the case.
Alhaji Adeoti also wondered the legality or morality of the chief judge using almost one week to assign the case to a judge who fixed hearing of mere bail application for ten (10) days later, only to decline till the following day when he now fixed ruling for another one week. These are the current tragedies of Osun State judiciary under the nepotic rulership of Oyinlola.
“It is certain that there is some forces somewhere breathing down the throat of the judiciary officials whom the AC is certain, are capable of doing the right thing and that force is Gov. Oyinlola and his cohorts” Alhaji Adeoti submitted.
The AC is once more calling on Nigeria’s President Yar’Adua, the Inspector General of Police and all men of good will to intervene in the ongoing abuse of human rights as well as their liberty and rape on constitution and democratic norms by the Oyinlola government in Osun State even as we restate our commitment to orderly society in the right atmosphere.
