Political thugs said to be loyal to the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) in Osun have attacked the convoy of the wife of the Governor, Mrs. Kafayat Oyetola, in Owode Ede area of the State.

It was gathered that the thugs attacked the governor’s wife convoy on Friday night, August 19, 2022, while heading to Osogbo, the state capital.

Ede is the home town of the Governor-elect, Senator Ademola Adeleke.

The attack is coming barely two weeks after a list of top Government officials allegedly marked for attack by the opposition PDP surfaced on social media.

Trouble was said to have started when security operatives attached to the First Lady tried to clear the traffic around Owode Ede to allow for easy passage.

Unknown to them, some PDP thugs had positioned themselves and began hauling stones and other dangerous items at the convoy.

Two of the security operatives, according to an eye witness were hit by the stones and injured which prompted them, security operatives, to start shooting into the air with a view to scaring the hoodlums away.

“The situation lasted for about five minutes, forcing traders and motorists to run for safety before the convoy eventually escaped the attack”, said the source.

When contacted the Governor’s wife media aide, Iluyomade Oluwatunmise confirmed the attack, saying there was no casualty but some security operatives were injured during the attack.

“It is true the convoy was attacked at Owode-Ede while trying to navigate the traffic around the market. We believe it was premeditated as list of some top government functionaries marked for attack had been flying around on the social media.
