The Oranmiyan Group, a socio-political organization in the State of Osun, has described as barbaric and condemnable the unprovoked attack and attempt on the life of Mr. Bola Ilori, the Osun State Commissioner for Regional Integration by the agents of Ondo State Government during the All Progressive Congress (APC) South West Consultative Restructure meeting, held in Akure, Ondo, State Capital on Thursday. 

The Oranmiyan in a press statement signed by its Youth Leader, Mr. Olajide Sadiq on Friday, said the indifferent posture of the Ondo state officials at the event was highest level of irresponsibility that any government officials could have drifted into and that such impunity is capable of derailing the democratic development in Nigeria.

Olajide who spoke in strong term said it is cruel for anyone under any guise to attack another, adding that the attitude of the security personnel attached to Ondo state Deputy Governor, Hon. Agboola Ajayi was far from posture expected of the security agents.

Calling on the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris to investigate the attack and bring to book those responsible for the gruesome attack, The Oranmiyan warned that attack on its leader must not be swept under the carpet.

We considered it as rude, criminal and flagrant disrespect to rule of law and complete infringement on the right of Mr Bola Ilori, the deliberate and planned attack on the state of Osun commissioner by the suspected contracted thugs of the Ondo State government who nearly murdered Bola Ilori during a forum designed to be platform to chart a better course for our party, APC and Nigeria at large facing apparent secession and devolution agitations from all parts of the country.

“Without any hestiation, Ilori attack at the International Cultural and Event Center was premeditated and state organised as the commissioner who never had any encounter with anyone was openly attack, manhandled and almost stripped naked despite heavy presence of security details of the Ondo State Deputy Governor, Hon Agboola Ajayi and Secretary to the State Government Hon. Ifedayo Abegunde.

“In the process of the attack, several members of Oranmiyan Group and other stakeholder’s from the State of Osun were severely molested and beaten. Despite several entreaties, the Deputy Governor and SSG watched with pleasure while their security details also ignored the brutal attack until the hoodlums took over the venue and began to attack known faces from Osun.

“Oranmiyan group considered the attacked supervised by top government officials as highest level of irresponsibility with public office, and impunity that capable of derailing the democratic development in Nigeria.

“We however call on the Inspector General of Police to specially investigate the police personnel deployed for the conference particularly the security details of the Ondo State Deputy Governor and the SSG who openly supervised and aided the attacks and attempt on the life of Bola Ilori. It is also important to arrest the perpetrators who openly displayed firearms and injured participants at the conferences.

“The dexterity and braveness of the thugs pose a serious danger to the peace of Ondo, and if not timely checked; only God knows who will live to tell another story.
