POLITICAL VIOLENCE: Makinde Advises Security Agencies To Organise Peace Parley


The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,  gubernatorial candidate in Oyo state, Engr Seyi Makinde, has called on the state commissioner of police and the director of State Services, DSS to, as a matter of urgency, summon an emergency meeting of leaders of all political parties on current security situation in the state.

According to a statement from his campaign organisation and signed by Prince Dotun Oyelade, the government who should enforce peace and the Governor who should be the Chief Security Officer have abandoned their  roles and become partisan.

Makinde said that security chiefs must take his advice seriously because thugs of the government party, the APC are getting bolder, more desperate and  audacious with each passing day having realised that electoral defeat is imminent.

He cited the unprovoked attack on his entourage at Ojoo in Akinyele local government three days ago and other  previous attacks on the opposition.

“What is more worrisome is the threat of attacks on harmless supporters who are not necessarily card carrying members of our party but who simply want change and better governance,” he added.

Makinde promised that he would attend such peace meeting gladly because he wants a peaceful poll and does not want bloodletting in the name of seeking political office.
