Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the last governorship election in Osun state, Senator Iyiola Omisore yesterday raised an alarm that some people suspected plans to assassinate him to cover up issues concerning the August 9 election.
Omisore, in a statement in Osogbo by his Media aide, Mr. Victor Oriola, therefore called on security agents to increase security around Senator Omisore to forestall the blood thirsty vampire in the party from carrying out their evil machinations”.
The statement read in part: ”We are constrained to inform the general public, especially the security agents that we have uncovered plots to assassinate Senator Iyiola Omisore in order to cover up the electoral heist perpetrated on August 9, 2014.
“This is coming on the heels of startling revelation coming from the Osun State Election Petition Tribunal handling the petition of Senator Omisore and it is better for the security to have the information to be able to know how to prevent the inhuman act.
“The dwindling political fortunes of the said party in the south west is responsible for this sinister plot that is meant to silence those who are considered as a threat in the region.
“The plot which is being coordinated from Lagos state started around June this year when some assassins who have been on the trail of Senator Omisore during the governorship campaign broke into his house in Lagos. Some of the people apprehended by the police are yet to be charged to court since then.
“We have noticed that whenever Senator Omisore comes to the venue of the Osun State Election Petition Tribunal at Oke-Fia, he is being trailed by an unmarked vehicle, ostensibly to monitor his movement. Because of this development, Senator Omisore has been advised not to appear personally in court in order to forestall these unscrupulous elements from perpetrating their evil deed.”
