Osun APC bemoans Killing of Another APC Chieftain In Apomu

The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned the gruesome murder of another chieftain of the party at Apomu in Isokan Local Government Council Area of the state yesterday barely one month after the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke, was declared the winner of the July 16, 2022 governorship election.

The state chairman of the APC, Prince Gboyega Famodun, in a statement issued by his Media Adviser, Kola Olabisi, in Osogbo stated that it is unbelievable that unsavoury events have now become ubiquitous in the state since the past one month.

Famodun who was apparently disturbed stated that the killing of the 48-year-old APC chieftain, Kazeem Alli popularly known as Kekere Pasuma, from Ward 6 who performed actively during the last governorship election, was wicked, callous and highly condemnable.

It was gathered that some gunmen allegedly sponsored by some stalwarts of the Opposition Party on Saturday killed the APC chieftain.

Information also has it that the deceased who was the Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers NURTW in the local government has been receiving series of death threats since the conclusion of the governorship election.

According to one of his three wives, Mrs Jemila Alli, the incident happened at about 8:30pm at Oke – Alfa, around RCM Missionary House in Apomu when her husband was coming back home from work.

The apparently dazed wife disclosed that the deceased left behind three widows and 12 children.

Prince Famodun tasked the statutory security agencies in the state to investigate the crime with a view to bringing the culprits to book.

“All lovers of peace should resist any attempt by some disgruntled politicians to turn the state into a den of killers all in the name of politics.

He charged the members and leaders of the APC in Isokan Local Government Council Area to continue to be law-abiding and allow the law of the land to take its course.
