Ahead of the fast-approaching September 22 governorship election in Osun State, the state chapter of Action Democratic Party (ADP) has raised alarm over an alleged plan by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to have some of its (ADP) prominent members arrested on trumped-up charges, days to the election.

This was contained in a statement issued and signed by the Director of Publicity and Information of the party Mr. Ayobami Modesty Fakeye, and made available to Journalists in Osogbo, the state capital.

According to him, available intelligence report has revealed the grand design to kidnap, arrest or even eliminate some of his party members before the election.

“Reliable intelligence reports have revealed the grand plan by the ruling-APC in Osun State to arrest some of our prominent members and their supporters on trumped-up charges with a view to keeping them out of circulation ahead of the governorship election.

“This would be effected with the active connivance of some officers and men of the security agencies in the state.

“To this end, we wish to appeal to all the leadership of the all the security agencies in the state to work within the dictates of the law and not allow themselves to be used by any politician matter how highly-placed,” Fakeye stated.

He, therefore, charged members of the ADP in the state to be security-conscious and be wary of the antics of the ruling party and its members.
