Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, on Wednesday, angrily left the Osogbo Central Eid ground over poor seating arrangement which prevented the governor from observing the two raka’at rite.
It was gathered that the former Senate spokesperson, Senator Ajibola Basiru along with foremost religion leader in the state, Chief Tunde Badmus, had arrived the Eid ground at Oke-Baale area of the state capital and took their seats in the front row.
However, some politicians approached Basiru and told him he was occupying the governor’s space and the senator moved to another space on the row, but they insisted he must leave the row for the governor and his entourage.
The senator, however, insisted on sitting on the row, which led to controversy. It was learnt that some hoodlums began to create scene. Incidentally, the governor arrived the Eid ground at the time but could not leave his vehicle for his seat.
The governor eventually stayed back in his car because of the scenario and could not observe the two raka’at prayer.
