Osun: Monarch warns against violence

The Ataoja of Osogbo, Oba Jimoh Oyetunji, on Wednesday, warned that he would not condone within his domain any form of violence from political parties.

 

Oba Oyetunji had on Tuesday condemned the alleged attack on some members of the Peoples Democratic Party, who were said to be heading towards his palace to receive the PDP governorship candidate in the Osun July 16 poll, Senator Ademola Adeleke.

 

But Oba Oyetunji, while speaking with newsmen in his palace, noted that his open condemnation of violence ought not to be misinterpreted as supporting the PDP or any other party.

 

The monarch said, “It has come to my attention that some sections of my domain in Osogbo land have deliberately misinterpreted and misconstrued my statement during Adeleke’s visit to my palace in Osogbo yesterday (Tuesday).

 

“My assertion that nobody should do anything to disturb the peace and tranquility of Osogbo land under the guise of political activism, more so, that various political parties had paid visit without any outward incident, ought not to be misinterpreted to mean that I am using my position as the Ataoja of Osogbo land to support the PDP in particular against all the other political parties including the party in power the All Progressives Congress.
