Thugs suspected to be loyal to Governor Gboyega Oyetola on Monday attacked the convoy of Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, in Osogbo, capital of the State of Osun.

OSUN DEFENDER gathered the gun-wielding hoodlums, suspected to be political thugs, waylaid his convoy and started shooting in a bid to scare away the former governor of the state and members of his entourage.

Aregbesola who walked at Orita-Gbaemu area of Osogbo around 5:30pm and sighted the Minister standing on his open roof vehicle and waiving at large crowd of residents who were hailing and jubilating at seeing their former governor.

The former governor of Osun continued his demonstration amid singing by his followers. Some were screaming “Sheu” as others were waiving brooms. The road show pulled so much crowd that there was traffic snarl along the Gbaemu-Idi-Seke road.

But pandemonium broke when Aregbesola got to Orisunbare market, close to Old-Garage when sounds of gunshots rented the air.

Jubilant residents who were following Aregbesola scampered for safety to escape being hit by stray bullet.

A team of combined security operatives from the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Nigeria Immigration Service and Department of State Security, who were among Aregbesola’s convoy, stepped down from the vehicles and started shooting in a bid to scare away the armed thugs.

OSUN DEFENDER gathered about twenty minutes, Old Garage Area was thrown into panic as traders and road users ran helter-skelter as a result of resounding gunshots from the thugs and security operatives.

Amid this melee, Aregbesola was still standing on his open roof car, apparently unperturbed. The security personnel were able to overpower the suspected thugs who later fled before the Minister’s convoy had its way through the Dugbe/Igbona Area of the state capital.

Aregbesola suffered the attack few hours after he openly declared that the former Secretary to the State Government, Moshood Adeoti, is the next governor of the state.
