Former Deputy governor of Osun state, Senator Iyiola Omisore, has described the attack on Governor Adegboyega Oyetola and his convoy in Osogbo on Saturday as barbaric and shameful.
Omisore in a statement by his media team said while he identified with the #EndSARS protesters, the attack on Oyetola was an assault on the nation’s growing democracy.
“The news of the attack on Governor Adegboyega Oyetola and his entourage in Osogbo by suspected thugs came to me as a surprise . The attack on the convoy of Governor Oyetola is barbaric and condemnable by every peace loving souls. It is an an embarrassment and shameful,” he said.
Omisore stressed that it was unfortunate that while all hands are on deck at sustaining the reigning peace in Osun State and Nigeria in general, some bad elements in the society could still be hell bent in truncating the peace being enjoyed in the state.
He, however, tasked security agencies in Osun State to investigate the attack on the governor’s convoy and expose, prosecute all those found culpable.
“The security agencies should leave no stone unturned at unraveling the circumstances surrounding the broad day attack on the governor by the suspected political thugs. Osun State is known for peace, we don’t want our state to turn to a theatre of war. Those behind the attack should be brought to book to serve as deterrent to other trouble makers,” Omisore added.
