‘If not for the intervention of some security operatives Segun Sowumi would have been beaten to death by now’. This is the narrative from a concerned PDP official to some party executives in Abeokuta today.

 

The former governorship candidate of the PDP was flogged by some thugs during the commencement of the electional tribunal sitting in Abeokuta.

 

The tribunal is sitting to hear the petition filed by Ladi Adebutu against Governor Dapo Abiodun in the last gubernatorial elections.

 

Some of the thugs believed to be loyalists of the APC descended on the PDP supporters with canes and singled out Segun Showunmi whom they beat to stupor before the intervention of some security operatives.

 

An eye witness present at the tribunal confirmed Sowunmi escaped by the whiskers.

 

Adebutu’s lead counsel, Chris Uche complained to the tribunal how PDP members were attacked at the entrance and prevented from observing the session.

‘it’s wicked and stupid! I don’t know how to respond to such’

 

That was a response from one of the aides to the Executive Governor of Oyo State, Governor Seyi Makinde when asked to confirm if truly the Governor recently acquired a private jet.

 

A report monitored online by papermache.com alleged that the Governor has joined the league of jet owners in Nigeria.

 

Governor Makinde was said to have been spotted at the Felix Houphouet Airport, Abidjan alighting from the aircraft alongside, Alhaji Azeem Gbolarumi and Alhaji Bisi Olopoeniyan at the just concluded AFCON finals.

 

This stemmed the report that the Governor has just acquired the private jet for his private use.

 

Another aide of the Governor who refused to add his name, citing reasons that he wasn’t allowed to make official comments responded to the allegation as ‘funny! How can you say somebody bought a jet because he alighted from it?’.
