APC Denies Link With Killing Of PDP Mobiliser In Oyo



The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State has denied the story being circulated by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), stating that some of its members masterminded the killing of Mudashiru Baraka in Oyo town.

The Oyo APC said it has nothing to do with the murder of Baraka as claimed by the state’s PDP chapter.

The party in a statement signed by the Oyo State APC Publicity Secretary, Olawale Sadare, said the accusation should be investigated to ascertain if such an ugly incident ever occurred as orchestrated.

The APC condemned what it described as the ruling party’s penchant for playing politics with issues relating to the security of lives and properties in the state.

The party’s reaction follows an allegation levelled at the APC in the state that it was responsible for the murder of one of its members in Oyo town.

The Oyo State chapter of the PDP on Wednesday accused the APC in the state of killing Baraka, who is a grassroots mobilizer in Oyo town but hails from ward 4 Tengba, Oyo East Local Government Area.

The PDP in a statement signed by the Oyo PDP spokesman, Akeem Olatunji, alleged that the state chapter of the APC sponsored the assassination of Baraka.

However, the APC in the state has reacted by saying “Oyo town is not a recluse as it’s populated by good people who lived in peace and tranquillity until the present PDP administration of Gov Seyi Makinde came with its mission of domestic terrorism.

“For the avoidance of doubt, some leaders of our great party (APC) were in Oyo town to welcome some defectors from the PDP, Accord and other parties. The ceremony went well and everybody present including some of our candidates and leaders as well as party supporters enjoyed the atmosphere which was devoid of violence or tension.

“We do not know of any violent attack recorded in Oyo town and as such, we urge the State Police Command to investigate the allegation with a view to establishing the fact and punishing the culprits, particularly those making false allegations against our Party.”
