A faction of the All Progressive Congress in Osun on Tuesday alerted Nigerians to an alleged plot to kill Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola.

A statement by the State Publicity Secretary of the party, Comrade Abiodun Agboola, said that as the former Governor leads members of the party to a federal constituency meeting in Iwo on Tuesday, there are alleged plans to attack Aregbesola.

The party called attention to last week attempt to burn down his old campaign office The Oranmiyan House and the attack on his convoy in Osogbo, the state capital on Monday.

“We wish to inform the general public and security agencies in the State of a plot to kill the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, by default by the state government sponsored political thugs.


“We said by default because the plan was to lay ambush for the Minister’s entourage and deal them massive attacks on his way to visit Iwo Federal Constituency today.”


Aggoola said the plan which was hatched at the Okefia government house Monday night was to ensure that the Iwo federal constituency meeting is stopped.


The statement claimed that  the Governor Oyetola’s group was pained that the Minister escaped the assassination plot on Monday.


It said, “The leadership of the Hon. Rasaq Salinsile led All Progressives Congress  (APC) in the State of Osun therefore called on security agencies in the state to be proactive in designing a foolproof measure that will bring to naught, the evil plot by the Governor Oyetola’s group.


“We are reliably informed that some government officials, apparently acting on the directive of the governor met at the Government House till about 12am with the mandate to frustrate today’s meeting in Iwo by all means, including killing if it comes to that.


“Immediately after the meeting, our source said calls were put through to the government head thug to prepare his men very well for the execution of the evil plot.”


The statement added that the party gathered that plans are underway by the desperate elements to clothe their thugs in Alhaji Moshood Adeoti’s T-shirts with the directive to attack members of the public and cause mayhem in town.


“We are therefore calling on security agencies to act professionally to nip the deadly plan in the bud.


“We also call on all men of goodwill across the state to plead with the Oyetola government from turning Osun into a jungle where all misunderstandings must be settled by violence.


“We note that things were not like this in eight years of his predecessor as Osun was credited with huge acknowledgement of peacefulness and tranquility,” the statement concluded.
