Senator Ademola Adeleke, the newly elected governor of Osun State, has warned his supporters and well-wishers not to engage in violence.
The former legislator warned those celebrating his victory to be respectful or risk being disowned as members of his political family.
Remember that Adeleke was declared the winner of the recently concluded Osun governorship election on Sunday.
His supporters and well-wishers across the country have been ecstatic.
Some of the jubilants, however, are said to have engaged in violence against members of the defeated party.
Reacting, Adeleke in a statement by his spokesperson, Mallam Olawale Rasheed, condemned the reported violent conduct of some youth celebrating his emergence as Governor-elect in the state, dissociating himself and his political organisation from such negative activities.
“It has come to the attention of the Governor-Elect that some youth are engaging in violent celebrations, leading to isolated attacks on vehicles and even individuals. This is unacceptable conduct and those involved in such behaviour are warned to stop forthwith.
“While commiserating with any victim of such incident, the Adeleke Campaign Organisation Is hereby informing the general public that it did not authorise any such demonstration and those involved are definitely not part of the Adeleke Campaign Organisation,” he said.
