The attack on the campaign office of Omowaiye was effected two weeks after he narrowly escaped being killed by the PDP political thugs and few hours after former Governor Oyetola visited the office on his way back from the APC presidential campaign rally in Akure, Ondo State, yesterday.

As if that wasn't enough, Honourable Olasunkanmi Obisesan, the Chief of Staff to the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, the Right Honourable Timothy Owoeye, was shot in the broad daylight by the PDP thugs led by one Sunday Amure a.k.a. 'Irawo', at Ifofin Ward, Ilesa-East Local Government Council Area of the state, this morning.

Olasunkanmi who was shot at the region of his ankle was rushed to Wesley Guild Hospital, Ilesa, for intensive care and treatment.

In his response, the Osun State Acting Chairman of the APC, Sooko Tajudeen Lawal, stated that there was no justifiable reason for the hostilities and attacks waged by the PDP on the APC members and their property.

Lawal implored the police and other security agencies in the state to sit up and provide their statutory duties to the people of the state.

He enjoined the police to investigate the unsavoury development with a view to bringing the culprits to book.

The state Acting Chairman disclosed that he was surprised by the content of the press statement hurriedly rolled out by Mr Akindele Adekunle, the state PDP caretaker committee chairman, after the report of the attack in the social media today.
