Oyetola's wife convoy attack led to five people being arrested.


On Saturday, the Osun State Police Command announced that five persons had been detained in relation to the attack on the convoy of Mrs. Kafayat Oyetola, the wife of the Osun state governor, in Owode, Ede.

According to a statement acquired in Osogbo from the command's spokesman, Yemisi Opalola, operatives were alerted of an attack on Mrs. Oyetola's convoy at around 8:30 pm on Friday.

"Information was received that some hoodlums were attacking the First Lady's convoy at Owode, Ede Market Express Road," she stated. The detectives were met by CSP Dauda Ismail, the CSO to His Excellency (Adegboyega Oyetola), the executive governor of Osun State, when DPO 'A' Division Ede swiftly mobilised and took them to the spot. 

According to him, the First Lady's movement was impeded by one Omolola Opeyemi "M" of Ijebu Ode, the driver of a single truck without a registration number, as a result of the traffic jam. The driver was hit in the forehead, and some thugs took advantage of it to start stoning the convoy's vehicles, injuring one DSS agent. Five individuals were detained at the site, though.

Oluwatunmise Iluyomade, the First Lady's information officer, also acknowledged the occurrence and stated, "No lives were lost in the incident. A few members of the convoy's security staff suffered varied degrees of injuries.

In the meantime, the PDP in Osun State has charged Mrs. Oyetola's office with trying to hide the activities of her escort, who "beat up a truck driver at Owode, leading to public angry outbursts against her entire convoy."

According to a statement issued by the party's spokeswoman, Oladele Olawabamiji, and received in Osogbo on Saturday, a truck encountered a problem in the middle of the road as the driver was attempting to fix it.

The First Lady's convoy arrived at the site at that time, and instead of assisting in resolving the traffic jam, the security personnel around the First Lady attacked the truck driver and beat him into a stupor.

"After the driver slumped, the operatives rushed him to the hospital after realising the outcome of their illegal misadventure. At this moment, the market's patrons responded aggressively, throwing objects at the caravan, including stones, he added.

The gathering demanded that the First Lady express her regret to the truck driver for the cruel treatment.

Instead of blaming the PDP, Oluwabamiji said, "we urge on representatives of the departing administration to be careful of their contact with the people of Osun state.
