Akeredolu Mobilizes Thugs To Tribunal Sitting In Akure

The Governor of Ondo State, Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN has mobilised large number of thugs to the venue of Ondo Gubernatorial Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Akure, the Ondo State capital.

At the hearing this morning, Tuesday, 8th December, 2020, APC thugs under the leadership of one "Chemical"  bombarded the venue, harassing, molesting, beating up, shooting sporadically into the air and attacking anyone perceived to be supporter of the PDP and its Candidate, Mr Eyitayo Jegede, SAN.  Mr. Sunday Oladunmoye is still receiving treatments from machete cut wounds he sustained from this group of thugs.

They were parading the vicinity of the Court in a tinted Toyota Corolla car. Others were members of the Taxi Unit of National Union of Road Transport Workers( NURTW) with instructions from their master Jacob Adebo (Idajo) to cause pandemonium during the sitting.

As early as 8.30a.m this morning, the Petitioners, Eyitayo Jegede and the PDP represented by its State Chairman, Alhaji Fatai Adams, led other   PDP leaders to the Court. 

But shortly thereafter, the APC thugs caused so much panic and confusion within the arena. It took the combined efforts of the Army and Policemen to restore order.

The PDP wishes to call on security agencies to live up to this fresh threat to law and order in the State. Resorting to violence will not deter the PDP and its candidate from pursuing this Petition to its conclusive end. Neither can this act of barbarism scare the Judges from the course of Justice.

Present at today's inaugural hearing were; Engr Clement Faboyede, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, Tokunbo Modupe, Adomola Babalola, Hon.Suffy Uguoji, Engr. Adebowale,  Hon. Akinsoyinu and Tokunbo Jegede. State Executive Committee Members, Tola Alabere, Oluseye Olujimi amongst others.

 As the Election Petition Tribunal commence sitting today in the case filed by PDP Governorship Candidate, Eyitayo Jegede SAN Challenging the INEC declaration of Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of APC in  the October 10,, 2020 Governorship Election. As early as 7:30am this morning, the APC has mobilised thugs majorly composed of members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW)  in their hundred to the vicinity of the court premises armed with dangerous weapons like cutlasses, axes and guns.

At about 9:00am, they have started beating any member of the opposition parties particularly members of the PDP seen within the court arena. As at the time of reporting they have beaten and macheted two members of PDP that came to observe the court proceedings. 
They are going around in an unmarked bus attackinng and destroying properties belonging to known members of PDP in that area.
The security agencies have just dispersed some of them within the court premises now.

Much as we appreciate the quick intervention of the security personnel, we urge them to do more by arresting those brandishing dangerous weapons and attacking innocent party faithfuls before it degenerate to inter party crisis.
