The All Progressives Congress in Osun State on Friday alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party had concluded a plot to assassinate the first civilian Governor of the state, Senator Isiaka Adeleke, and three other APC leaders in the state.
The party did not, however, provide evidence of the alleged plot.
A statement by the Director of Publicity and Strategy of APC in Osun State, Mr. Kunle Oyatomi, said the PDP had “contracted the assassination of four top APC leaders to hired killers from the Niger Delta for immediate execution.”
The statement listed the other leaders of the party on the alleged death list as Elder Peter Babalola (aka Peter Action), Chief Olu Abiola and Alhaji Fatai Oyedele.
APC alleged that “the hired killers have already commenced surveillance on the four leaders.”
It said the plot to eliminate Adeleke and others was hatched at a meeting in Lagos on Thursday but did not substantiate the allegation.
The party said, “We are therefore alerting Nigerians of the horrible dimension to which PDP’s desperation for power has taken.
PDP in the State of Osun has gone berserk and their diabolical lust for power has become so murderous that they seem to care less about innocent lives.”
