Spokesman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has been arrested by security agents in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.
In a statement issued in Osogbo last night, his personal assistant, Mr. Williams Adeleye, said Alhaji Mohammed was arrested along with Mr. Sunday Dare, Media Aide to APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and the Deputy Chief of Staff to Ogun State
Governor, Mr. Salisu.
“They were arrested Gestapo style by a team of soldiers and DSS agents while they were heading to the Government House, and taken to an unknown destination in an unmarked truck,” the statement said, adding:
“The arrest was the latest in a series of clampdown targeting opposition leaders and members ahead of Saturday’s polls in Osun.”
News Express reports that the polls, currently on-going, have been peaceful and orderly but dogged by claims by APC, the ruling party in the state, of mass arrest of its officials.
