Thugs Set The Office And Cars Of Ogun State Deputy Speaker On Fire
On Sunday night, thugs suspected to be working for opposition
politicians attacked property or structures that had connection with
either the All Progressives Congress (APC) or politicians of the
Hon. Kunle Oluomo, Deputy Speaker of Ogun State House of Assembly,
was the first victim of the rampaging thugs when he had his constituency
office in Ifo, together with five vehicles, set ablaze.
Also the Constituency office of Hon. Ibrahim Isiaka, the Ifo/Ewekoro
Federal House of Representatives member, was not spared as hoodlums
stormed and burnt it down. The hoodlums seized on the grand finale of
the town’s annual Akoogun festival to perpetrate the dastardly acts.
It was learnt that operatives of the Special Anti–Robbery Squad
(SARS) had trailed one of the boys suspected to have masterminded the
arson to the venue of the Akoogun Festival for gun possession. The boy
was also said to have disrupted activities at various polling units
during the last general election, but his gang allegedly encircled the
Police, stoutly preventing him from being taken away and retrieving the
said gun from the Police.
According to reports, the hoodlums also attempted to snatch an AK47
from one of the policemen but in a fierce struggle for the riffle
between the Police and the daring hoodlums, gunshot rang out and one of
the boys was cut down while the policemen also fled the scene.
This raised the ire of the hoodlums as they quickly regrouped and
stormed the constituency office of Kunle Oluomo, torching the
constituency building and the vehicles on the premises. Oluomo’s
property destroyed during the attack include office, five vehicles
(three Mercedes 42-seater buses, one Isuzu Luxurious bus and a 36–seater
coaster bus being used for free school shuttle pupils and students in
Ifo 1 State Constituency.
