Written by Adewale Adeyemi on February 13, 2023
Some armed security men have reportedly recovered three official vehicles said to be in the custody of the head of market women in Osun State, Chief Awawu Asindemade.
The vehicles recovered from Asindemade were said to include; a coaster bus, and two others attached to her office as the Iyaloja-General of Osun State.
The state chapter of the All Progressives Congress, in a statement signed by its acting chairman, Mr Tajudeen Lawal, obtained in Osogbo on Sunday, said the vehicles were forcefully taken away from Asindemade’s residence in Osogbo last Friday by a team of government officials accompanied by some armed police operatives.
Reacting further to the development, Lawal, said the State Governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke, ordered that official vehicles in Asindemade’s custody be recovered, as well as those with other Iyaloja at the 30 local government areas because they attended the recently held APC presidential campaign in Osogbo.
But reacting to the allegations,Punch newspaper reports that Osun PDP acting chairman, Dr Adekunle Akindele, in another statement, absolved his party of any blame, declaring that neither the State Governor nor its officials were also involved in the alleged invasion of Asindemade’s residence.
