Call Osun CP to order, APC tells IGP over alleged gagging of opposition

The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Osun State, tasked the Inspector-General of Police, Alkali Baba, yesterday, to warn the state Police Commissioner, Kehinde Longe, against becoming a willing tool of the government to punish opposition party members in the state.

According to the APC’s acting Chairman, Tajudeen Lawal, the CP met with the PDP leadership to redeploy Divisional Police Officers, DPOs, across the state in order to impose compromised ones to deal with APC members ahead of the general elections next month.

The statement reads: “This is a serious problem that we are contending with which is capable of adding to the political upheaval in the state where the members of the opposition and their supporters are being attacked by suspected PDP thugs for no reason.

“We have the privileged information that the DPOs are to be transferred massively to give way to compromised ones, who would always be ready to carry out any illegal order of Governor Ademola and the PDP.

“We are appealing to the IGP to call the Osun CP to order. We are equally appealing to the other sister security agencies in the state to discharge their statutory duties with neutrality and desist from any assignment capable of impugning the image of their outfits.”
