Some things suspected to be members of the opposition parties in Oyo state on Sunday attacked the Omi Adio Ibadan home and campaign office of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), candidate for Ido/Ibarapa East federal constituency, Professor Joseph Adeniyi Olowofela.

It was gathered on Tuesday that property destroyed at the house of Olowofela included six vehicles; two branded hummer buses (belonging to the legislative arm, Omi-Apata LCDA and Ido Lg APC), branded villager mercury sport, Siena, old range rover, branded pilot jeep.

Olowofela while reacting in a statement issued by his media aide, Comrade Idowu Ayodele, described the Sunday’s attack by the oppositions as an indication of his popularity and acceptability by the constituents. He said:

“The opposition cannot change the resolve by Ibarapa East /Ido constituents to vote for Olowofela and all the APC candidates in the forthcoming polls billed for February 16”.

He condemned the attack saying “the attack was uncalled for.” He added:

“The uproarious event which claimed the life of an APC chieftain and strong member of his campaign organization, Alhaji Salau Salimon Alade who was shot dead, occurred shortly after the state governor, Abiola Ajimobi and the APC’s gubernatorial candidate, Chief Adebayo Adelabu left the Omi-Adio rally, other party faithful who were directly attacked, also sustained various injuries”.

“Among the properties attacked by the thugs was his Omi-Adio residence, in Ido Local Government Area of Oyo state where no fewer than six vehicles including two branded hummer buses (belonging to the legislative arm, Omi-Apata LCDA and Ido Lg APC), branded villager mercury sport, Siena, old range rover, branded pilot jeep and campaign office were vandalized.

“Though I was surprised with the degree of damages done by these criminals, it has also confirmed our resounding victories as a party and further proven that I remain the people’s choice.

“The oppositions should endeavour to endear themselves to the good people of Ibarapa East/Ido Federal constituency, through humane and civilized manner, rather than resort to desperate tactics that threaten the lives and property of the citizens”.

While commending the Omi-Adio Divisional Police Headquarters for its quick response, Olowofela, however, demanded that the perpetrators of this heinous crime and their sponsors should be brought to book no matter how highly placed in order to stem the ugly trend.

He, however, called on party faithfuls, supporters good and peace loving people of Ibarapa East/Ido federal constituency to remain calm and maintain order.
