Senator Kamorudeen Adedibu, the son of the late Lamidi Adedibu of Oyo State has challenged the state police command to unveil the murderers of one of his father’s supporter, Mrs. Olabisi Ojetunde.
Senator Adedibu, representing Oyo South Senatorial District at the senate said that the death of the deceased has created wounds in the heart of her family, friends and political associates.
The deceased was attacked by some unknown persons at a prayer session to mark the end of the mourning period for windows of the late Adedibu in Molete, Ibadan, the state capital last week.
She died of complications arising from wounds she sustained during the attack.
Meanwhile, the younger Adedibu who led members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the deceased urged the police at the weekend to uncovered the killers.
Although, there have been conflicting accounts of what led to the fracas that claimed the deceased’s life, Adedibu’s widow, Bose, said Ojetunde was attacked by an opposing political group.
She described as untrue, reports that the deceased was attacked at the late Adedibu’s home, saying that the family shut the gate against the feuding politicians when it was discovered that they were becoming unruly.
Ojetunde was attacked for allegedly making some uncomplimentary remarks against a top government official.
She reportedly went into coma during the attack and died three days later at the Catholic Hospital, Ibadan.
The political group of the late Adedibu has been in turmoil since his demise, with many of his followers seeking to take over the leadership of the group.
The conflict that led to Mrs. Ojetunde’s death has its roots in the test of strength between the contending forces.
