The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State, Senator Teslim Folarin, has expressed outrage over the inter-party violence that occurred on Thursday at Ile Tuntun, Ibadan South East Local Government, leading to the death of some individuals.
Folarin in a statement he personally signed and made available to newsmen on Friday, commiserated with the bereaved families and wished those fatally injured speedy recoveries.
The three-term lawmaker, while condemning the political violence, called on the police to thoroughly investigate the incident with a view to bringing the culprits to book.
“I keep saying, spate of killings, maimings, brigandage and other political crises send a wrong signal to the local and international communities about the lawlessness, insecurity and political intolerance in Oyo State. This nonsense must stop!
“Though political parties may differ, we are one big family. Politics should not be a do or die affair. All political gladiators must learn to peacefully co-exist.
“I urge all political stakeholders to embrace politics of development. That is the only way to move forward Oyo State for growth and development,” he said.
