The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the Minister of Interior and former Governor, Rauf Aregbesola of causing trouble in the state.
To this end, the party has called on the presidency under the leadership of Muhammadu Buhari to call the Minister to order.
Recall that intel Region reported that Aregbseola attacked both Tinubu and Bisi Akande over Oyetola second term bid
The statement accused Aregbesola of using the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) to cause chaos in Osun State.
It, therefore, called on the presidency, the Inspector-General of Police and other security agencies to take notice of the situation and intervene in the matter.
The statement read, “The Osun All Progressives Congress, wishes to bring to the attention of the Presidency, the Inspector-General of Police and all security agencies, that the Civil Defence Corps has lent itself as an infrastructure of disruption of the peace that Osun has enjoyed hitherto.
“They have abandoned their legal duties and now provide cover for people who have ulterior motives and do not place any value on the blood of innocent citizens for as long as their wicked intentions are violently actualised.
“Osun has remained safe until the countdown to its party primaries. On the evening of February 14, the men of Civil Defence drove aggressively through the state capital, Osogbo, providing cover for the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, and causing disruption of peace.
“We are calling on the Presidency to call the Minister of Interior, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, and the Civil Defence Corps to order. Our party, the APC, the government and the citizens of Osun are not interested in any form of violence, and the selfish ambition of an individual or group isn’t worth the blood of any Osun citizen.
“It is ungodly, unfair and immoral for anyone to deploy taxpayers’ money against taxpayers, just like the Minister of Interior is doing with the men of Civil Defence Corps.
“We want the Presidency and all security agencies to urgently address the fire being stoked in Osun by the Minister of Interior and his henchmen as we pray for necessary interventions against the desperate assaults of desperate politicians on our state, our party and our citizens.”
It will be recalled that reports had emerged that the convoy of Minister Aregbesola was attacked in Osun State by some political thugs.
The shooting was said to have occurred at the Old Garage area to Oke Fia Area of Osogbo, the state capital on Monday.
While the Police denied the attack on the Minister’s convoy, the Civil Defence confirmed the attack.
