Thugs and Firearms in Election/PDP VS APC


Thugs and firearms importation by PDP and APC.

There has been a fracas going on between All people's congress party(APC)and people's democratic party(PDP).

Both Parties allegedly accused themselves for the thugs and firearms importation that will help them do there dirty work. To this effect there has been exchange of words between both parties in Osun East senatorial district of the state.

The PDP senatorial candidate for Osun East, Chief Francis Adenigba Fadahunsi, in a press statements said that "contrary to what APC made people to believe, the party relied on violence and anarchy to win elections in the zone.


Fadahunsi alleged that Famurewa, who is presently a member of the House of Representatives in Abuja, and a former Director General of APC governorship campaign committee in the just-concluded gubernatorial election in the state, was using a popular group of urchins known as ‘state boys’ to intimidate voters, adding that the group remained an instrument of oppression during the last administration of APC in the state.
“I can boldly say that the said thugs were those that have worked for APC in the previous elections, they are popularly called State Boys. These APC hoodlums and terrorists were led by Hon. Famurewa.
“The problem APC has is that they have lost political popularity and relevance as nothing taken by force lasts, hence the desperation to wreck havoc.
"Famurewa who is claiming not to have thugs has been using his Jeep, patrol vans to carry them about to attack opponents.
“He started his terror act within Ilesa when he led his thugs to my campaign office in Omiru area of Ilesa to attack my supporters, before proceeding to Benedict Hotel in Atakumosa, where they kidnapped a security guard only to be released the second day.
“They also shot sporadically at Orange Hotel. All these cases were reported to the Assistant Inspector of Police (AIG) Zone 11, Osogbo who directed the Commissioner of Police to do an assessment of the area. The CP has been to Ifewara with armoured personnel carrier on this.
