Thugs abduct council boss in Oyo

Some political thugs have kidnapped the chairman of Afijio Local Government area of Oyo state, Hon. Samuel Aderemi.

The  rampaging thugs stormed the council in an attempt to prevent the sacked Local government chairmen and councillors under the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC) from resuming.

 Aderemi, after he was beaten to stupor by the hoodlums, was whisked away in a bus to an unknown destination.

He was however later rescued after two hours by security agents.

The victim, according to the sacked ALGON Chairman, Hon. Abass Aleshinloye is recuperating in an undisclosed hospital.

Similar scenarios played out in Ibadan North, Ibadan North East Local Governments and Omi Apata Local Council Council Development Authority ( LCDA) where thugs had a field day, causing mayhem.

Despite the presence of security agents comprising the police and Civil Defense men, injuries were inflicted on party members of the APC and Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), who engaged in free- for- all .

 Trouble started on Monday when the sacked chairmen and councillors make good their threat to resume within the 68 local government and LCDA Secretariats .

Governor Seyi Makinde, shortly after his inauguration last May, dissolved the chairmen and asked them to hand over to the most senior career officer in their respective councils, after about eight months of legal battle with the state government.
The council chairmen were elected on May 12, 2018 in local government election conducted by former Governor Abiola Ajimobi.
Information gathered from all the 33 local government areas and 35 Local Council Development Areas in the state showed that majority of the chairmen had resumed into their offices except a few.
