The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State, on Monday, alleged that there is an ongoing crackdown on top leaders of the party by security operatives in Osogbo, Ile Ife and Orolu – areas where the rerun election is to hold on Thursday.
PDP in a tweet alleged that a top leader of the party, Alhaji Fatal Diekola was arrested in Osogbo.
“In Osogbo, a top leader of the @OfficialPDPNig, Alhaji Fatal Diekola was arrested.
He was roughly handled and beaten up despite his ill health. His aides were matched. Other PDP leaders at Osogbo are been harassed with many of them unable to sleep in their respective homes”.
The party further stated that the situation was the same in Orolu as APC thugs struck this morning, beaten up PDP leaders.
“Meeting of PDP leaders was disrupted by hooded thugs from the APC with violence unleashed on innocent party members and supporters”.
