SUCCOUR may have come to politics in Ilesa West Local Government Council Area of Osun State as political thugs financed by the impeached local government council chairman, Ibunkun Fadipe have been co-opted into a foot-ball team club.
A source (name withheld), close to the embattled council boss, has revealed in a chat with OSUN DEFENDER at the week-end. According to the source, the chairman who was impeached by the council legislative arm sometimes ago co-opted the thugs into the football team having realized that his tenure has come to a sudden end and using the council financial resources for the thugs would no more be possible.
The source further stated that the impeached council chairman has also realized that his god-father, embattled Governor Oyinlola would soon be swept away from office through Appeal Court sitting in Ibadan, Oyo state capital hence, he (Fadipe) commenced dislodging the thugs.
While speaking on the ugly situation, a notable chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ilesa West Local Government Council Area, (name withheld) said that the decision to dump the thugs after being used by the embattled former chairman, was a good decision, stating that if not that, the thugs could in future attack the embattled former chairman with sword to demand for their rights.
