Osun election: APC using Amotekun to kill our members – PDP cries out

In advance of the July 16 governorship election in Osun State, Diran Oduyemi, a former deputy national secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of using the South Western security network, Amotekun, to kill and intimidate PDP members.

He claims that the APC has been despised by the populace and that regardless of its antics, the party will lose the upcoming election.

According to Oduyemi, the APC has begun arming thugs and assuring the electorate that they have the resources to do so.

“APC has their own way of doing things. They have their way of getting results by all means. And what we’re saying in Osun State is that people have rejected them and they are going to express that with their voters’ cards on the 16th of July,” he said on Channels Television.

“But we’re asking Nigerians to help us beg them to stop killing our people. As I’m talking to you now, we’ve lost five of our members and we’ve reported this to security agencies.

“They’re using Amotekun, which they said they created because of terrorism and kidnapping in Osun State. They’re using it as a weapon to terrorise the electorate in Osun.

“In Ilesha yesterday, they shot guns to the extent that the people closed their doors against them. In Ijebu-lesha, the same thing happened.

“They have started, they’re empowering the thugs and ensuring the electorate they have the money to buy them. But the people of Osun State will reject them with their votes on the 16th of July,” he added.
