PDP Crisis Aggravates In Oyo As Hoodlums Attack Factional Secretariat



A secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Bodija Estate has come under attack by hoodlums suspected to be sponsored by a faction of the same party

Naija News understands that the event happened on Wednesday, July 14, aggravating crisis rocking the Oyo State ruling party.

Reports had it that the hoodlums who attacked the structure wore mask to embark on the vandalization hours after workers had closed in the evening. Residents of the areas were said to have alerted the police, who only arrived after the hoodlums had left.

Office equipment,vehicles and some other things were vandalised by the hoodlums, Naija News learnt.

One of the aggrieved leaders of the PDP who opened the parallel secretariat, Alhaji Bisi Olopoeyan, when contacted, confirmed the attack to our correspondent. He accused a leader of the party and a leader of the Park Management System of being behind the attack.

He said, ”Even if they wore masks, we know who they are and who sent them. They have destroyed this party with the way their boss is behaving now.

“The police were even here before we came. We learnt that those living around here saw the hoodlums and called the police on the telephone.”

Olopoeyan, Nureni Akanbi and former Deputy Governor, Hazeem Gbolarumi, had recently led other aggrieved members to a stakeholders meeting in Ibadan where they vowed to work for the party but not for Governor Seyi Makinde in the 2023 elections.

However, the Public Relations Officer of the PDP, Mr Akeem Olatunji, on Monday, denied the existence of factions in the party during a radio programme in Ibadan.
