AN Osogbo born contractor and philanthropist, Engr. Kehinde Raji, has raised the alarm over threat to his life.
Raji who is popularly known as ARAJ, said the threat was coming because of the defection of some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osogbo.
According to Raji, an unknown caller has been threatening to deal with him on phone because of the defection of the APC members.
The contractor who spoke with OSUN DEFENDER on Wednesday, said he was being threatened by the people he refused to mention their names because of the ‘erroneous believe’ that he instigated the APC members to go to PDP.
He said: “I received a strange call this morning (Wednesday) in respect of some APC members who defected to the PDP. The unknown caller threatened me.
“People worked for APC in Osogbo but they were abandoned. I inherited them and started empowering them; widows, students, market women and the aged. I made several overtures to Governor Oyetola and other notable APC leaders and members in the state.
“But some appointed sycophants in government mislead the Governor and he abandoned them (the APC members). They later got frustrated and moved to The Osun Progressives (TOP). However, some of them have decided to stay in APC and some have moved to PDP.
“I only helped the party to support them, I don’t have control over their political future or decisions.”
Raji said he has reported the threat to the police, warning those that were planning to attack him to desist or face the consequence.
