The All Progressives Congress, Osun state chapter has urged the presidency to call Interior Minister, Rauf Aregbesola and Civil Defence Corps to order in the state.
This was contained in a statement issued by the chairman of the party in the state Prince Gboyega Famodun, and obtained by TOS NEWS on Tuesday.
The party also alleged Civil Defence Corps of lending itself as an infrastructure of disruption of the peace that Osun has enjoyed hitherto.
‘’They have abandoned their legal duties and now provide cover for people who have ulterior motives and do not place any value on the blood of innocent citizens for as long as their wicked intentions are violently actualised,’’ the statement said.
The party said that it is unfair and immoral for anyone to deploy taxpayers’ money against taxpayers, just like the Minister of Interior is doing with the men of Civil Defence Corps.
The statement read, “Osun has remained safe until the countdown to its party primaries. On the evening of February 14, the men of Civil Defence drove aggressively through the state capital, Osogbo, providing cover for the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, and causing disruption of peace.
“We are calling on the Presidency to call the Minister of Interior, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, and the Civil Defence Corps to order. Our party, the APC, the government and the citizens of Osun are not interested in any form of violence, and the selfish ambition of an individual or group isn’t worth the blood of any Osun citizen.”
