The Peoples Democratic Party in Ogun State was bewildered by a shock following an attack on the Secretariat.
It was gathered that, in the desperation to realise a much-vaunted governorship ambition, Hon Ladi Adebutu (a.k.a Omo Baba Ijebu) yesterday evening led some rough necks, which included ex- Chairman of Ifo Local Government Area, Sikirulai Ogundele; his counterpart in Yewa North, Titus Eweje; former Commissioner for Works, Lai Taiwo and one Gbenga Nuberu, to invade the state secretariat of the PDP in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
Their mission was to cart away the party registers and other materials meant for the pending congresses of the PDP which are scheduled to begin on Saturday, 23rd April, 2016, with the ward congress.
Although they stormed the party secretariat with a truck-load of policemen brought by Adebutu, but the adequate security measure put in place by the leadership of the party in the state foiled their plan.
Now, they have been rounded up and taken to the State Police Command in Eleweran from where they will be charged to court on Monday.
Reacting to the development, the State Chairman of the party, Engr. Adebayo Dayo, condemned the incident and wondered why anyone, especially a so-called lawmaker will become a lawbreaker by resorting to such an illegality
He said it was unbecoming of someone who genuinely aspires to govern the good people of Ogun State, adding that the younger Adebutu’s action was a disgrace to the larger Adebutu family, popularly known as Baba Ijebu.
Dayo urge all well-meaning leaders and elders of Ogun State to prevail on the elder Adebutu to call his son to order and ask him to play by the rules, if he means well for the party and state.
He appealed to all party members to remain calm and law-abiding, adding that the party leadership was on top of the situation and that the relevant security agencies have been briefed.
