The Omoluabi Progressives Caucus of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State has raised the alarm over the threat to the life of the immediate past Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.

The APC group said there was a clear threat to Aregbesola’s life and freedom, based on an article written by a media aide to the former governor.

In a statement signed by the organising and publicity secretary of the Omoluabi caucus, Comrade Abosede Oluwaseun, the group said the threat to Aregbesola’s life could not be overlooked, going by the previous attacks on the former governor of the state and his loyalists in the recent past.

The caucus quoted the said article as saying, “Yet with a feeling of self-importance, he continues to wage war against the structure that brought him into the limelight.

But let me say for the umpteenth time that if Aregbesola continues his political war against the party and persons that brought him to political reckoning, he may not survive it.”

The caucus called on security agencies in the state to investigate the statement and prevent any attempt on Aregbesola’s life.

A copy of the statement made available to newsmen yesterday read: “We urgently draw the attention of the law enforcement agencies and all responsible individuals to the evident and explicit threats against the life and freedom of Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola, clearly expressed in this hostile narrative.”

The statement added that the assertions in the article betray a deeper and more insidious conspiracy and subterfuge.

The caucus added that the sponsors of the article are not only “playing God, which they are grossly incompetent and unqualified to do,” but are “certainly hatching a very dangerous, sinister, and diabolical plan against Aregbesola, which must not be overlooked.”

The statement added, “We cannot dismiss the clear murderous intent openly canvassed in the statement. This is very important because of the wicked antecedents of these people.”

The caucus recalled that on February 14, 2022, a murder squad waylaid Aregbesola’s convoy and openly attacked it at the Orisumibare market/Old Garage, Osogbo.

“Oranmiyan House, Aregbesola’s political office in Osogbo was viciously attacked twice. The attacks were with guns. The second attack was the most brutal and venomous,” the statement read.
