Ex- Governor Rauf Aregbesola‘s loyalist known as Rasheed Opatola has actually been indicted of sending political hooligans to disrupt the inauguration of ‘4 + 4 = Oyetola’ campaign.
A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in Osun State, Manashe Ehile while speaking on the event mentioned that the commencement was virtually ruined by the political goons, that stormed St. Stephen’s ‘B’ Primary School, Famia Road.
He included that twelve suspects after been nabbed pointed out the name of Opatola, the ex-special adviser on the environment to Aregbesola as their sponsor.
Ehile said, “One particular man called ‘Ori’ was said to be destroying the billboard of ‘4 +4 = Oyetola at the venue. But when we got to the venue, we calmed people down.”
“Later, some thugs were sent to disrupt the event. We were able to identify and apprehended some of them and they said Rasheed Opatola sent them.”
“About 12 of them were apprehended and we later released them after they apologised and confessed that they were sent.”
Opatola while reacting to the allegations said, “I did not send anyone to disrupt any awareness campaign of our Governor, Mr Gboyega Oyetola. On that Sunday, I was in an APC meeting alongside 18 other leaders of the party where we were discussing the progress of the party in our local council development area.”
