In the on-going appeal of Engineer Rauf Aregbesola against the judgment of Thomas Naron-led Osun State Governorship and Legislative Houses Tribunal which upheld the election of Olagunsoye Oyinlola at the Court of Appeal in Ibadan Division, the whole world witnessed the typical brazen act of brigandage from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun state who threw caution to the wind by causing pandemonium as a reaction against the acceptability of the petitioner’s evidences which were earlier refused by the judgement given by the Osun State Election Tribunal led by Naron.
In a press release issued and signed by Personal Assistant to Aregbesola on Media and Public Relations. Mr Oyintiloye Olatunbosun, The PDP council chairman of Olorunda, Igbona, Osogbo believed to have sponsored his supervisor, Hon. Oyetunde Babatunde Solomon who led the gang of thugs to the court premises in order to disrupt the on going court session at Ibadan on 11th march, 2009.
The 22 PDP thugs were however unlucky as a team of heavily armed policemen swoop on them and were taken to Iyaganku police headquarters for further interrogation. The arrest made included already mentioned serving supervisor in Olorunda Local Government Area Osogbo under the aforementioned council Chairman, a prime suspect in the mischievous confrontation that took place in the court premises.
The PDP who deliberately orchestrated violence at the court of appeal, and unleashed terror on AC supporters with thugs, hoodlums and miscreants clearly led credence to the fact that the recent victory of Dr. Olusegun Mimiko and others progressives at the Appeal Court is a corollary of the fact that this coterie of reactionaries and the Osun PDP cabal ostensibly demonstrated their discomfort and disdain over the numbers of declaration being made in recent time in the Appeal courts.
It will be recalled that time without numbers our Party’s Action Congress in Osun and his governorship Candidate have suffered harassment, intimidation, hounding, embarrassment, untoward mischief and brazen act of brigandage in the hand of this Cabal and Osun intransigent interloper who carried their thunderous show of shame once again to the Court of Appeal at ibadan.
The Osun PDP should exhibit a modicum sense of sanity; desist from act of acrimony, bickering, bloodletting and destruction of lives and properties which has characterised their idiosyncrasy.
