The political camp of the former governor of Osun State and immediate past minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, has alleged that persons working for the political interests of his successor and the current minister of Marine and Blue Economy, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola, have launched violent attacks against a member of the Aregbesola’s ‘Omoluabi Progressives Caucus’, one Mrs. Tutu Olanrewaju.
The attack, the statement said, was “in connection with the earlier suit on the matter that snowballed to the recent suit N0:HOS/M.508/2023 brought before the State High Court, Osogbo Judicial Division by Mrs. Olanrewaju, on behalf of the Aregbesola Caucus of the State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Aregbesola’s men alleged that the Oyetola camp orchestrated the violent attack against the person of Olanrewaju on her way from Igangan-Ijesa to Ilesa on the 2nd of October, 2023, after they learnt that she would institute an action against them in the court.
It added that the matter had since been reported to the police in the area, adding that the case was initially instituted at Osogbo Magistrate Court before refiling at the State High Court,Osogbo Judicial Division on 10th day of October,2023 and it was during this period that the accused persons launched the violent attack against Olanrewaju.
The Aregbesola camp said it confirmed from a family member of Olanrewaju that the attack was coordinated by a former commissioner in the Oyetola government, one Mr Remi Omowaye, and the attackers allegedly confessed that they were working for Mr. Oyetola and one Mr. Tajudeen Lawal.
The attacked Aregbesola member has since been taken to an undisclosed hospital for medical treatment.
