I Didn’t Order Any Party Member’s Arrest — Omodewu, Oyo APC Chairman, Urges People To Disregard News
Against accusation that he was behind the alleged detention of a member of a party in Ibadan Southwest, one Mr. Sunday Babalola, chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Oyo State Isaac Omodewu has refuted it.
It would be recalled that the said member was arrested in Ibadan yesterday, owing to alleged leadership tussle on the council area.
But Omodewu, who was reacting from Abuja where was attending the National Executive Council NEC, meeting of his party urged people to disregard such news, saying it nothing but an attempt to give a dog a bad name.
According to him, “I was not aware of any arrest. I didn’t report anybody. The said man isn’t a known person isn’t known to me. And he hasn’t offended me. Anybody who can I say I ordered anybody’s arrest or wrote any petition should come forward. So why should I order his arrest.
“I am concerned about reconciliation in our party. So why would I do order anybody’s arrest even if the person offended me? I am the party chairman in the state and I don’t see reason why anybody would link me with such.
“Be that as it may, I have asked my people to see the police to further get clarification on what truly transpired.
“I also want to appeal to all APC members to see themselves as one and forget what might have happened among them in the past. We are poised for victory in the coming polls and we should not allowed anything to distract us,” he added in a telephone chat.
