The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Oyo State, has reacted to the killing of Alhaji Babatunde Oreitan at Oremeji area of Ona-Ara local government of the state.

PRESS RELEASE: PDP KILLER GANGS ARE BACK IN FULL SWING WITH THE ASSASSINATION OF APC LEADER ALH OREITAN ARASI BABATUNDE(77 years)
What the public will perceive as trivial was the achievement of 8 years of great success in the provision of SECURITY OF LIFE AND PROPERTIES which was the Number one of all the achievements of the Government of H E, Sen Abiola Ajimobi, as the Governor of Oyo State, between 2011 to 2019.
That the Government of H. E, Engr SEYI MAKINDE and his Party, PDP has been targeting the leaders of the leading opposition party, APC for some few months of coming to power was carried out today by 3pm, Wednesday 22nd of January 2020, with the heartless manner Alh ARASI Babatunde OREITAN was brutally assassinated.
That Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Compol Sina Olukolu and his Police Squad from the Police headquarters, Eleyele, IBADAN, was at the house of the slained old man is bad enough to witness the gory scene of how the old man was brutally slaughtered in his house, just after observing his 2pm Islamic Prayer today is nothing but dastardly act.
What could be the offence of a 77 years old amiable politician, whom those close to him will attest to the fact that he can’t even hurt a fly.
APC is urging the Security outfit in Oyo State to kindly unravel the identity of the heartless Killers gang, who are hell bent to silence the opposition elements in Oyo State.
It is on record that Nigeria is running Three tiers of Government,i.e Federal, State and Local Governments.
While the APC Federal Government is not irresponsible to refuse working relationships with PDP Government in Oyo State, we are however dismayed that PDP State Government is desperately determined to refuse Elected Local Government Chairmen, turning itself to the Judiciary by interpreting Valid and Invalid Elections, all in a bid to deny them from serving their mandate, freely given to them on May 12th 2018,serving only one of their 3 years mandate.
A mandate which was truncated on May 29th 2019 by the Executive order recklessness of H. E, Engr SEYI MAKINDE and has been refusing to tow the line of Statemens despite reasonable advice from official quarters.
It is bad enough that, it is not yet one year that APC left Government that all these daylight assassination of opposition elements are taking place.
