The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Teslim Kolawole Folarin on Sunday advised the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the governor of the state, Seyi Makinde to stop politics of bitterness and campaign of calumny, especially as its involved human life.
Folarin was apparently reacting to a video which has gone viral on the social media in respect to a young man wearing a cloth tagged with his cloth and killed by some hoodlums.
The third term Senator in a statement signed by his media aide, YSO Olaniyi challenged police to investigate, interrogate those behind the video and ensure justice is served.
The statement queried the wisdom in wearing someone’s shirt to commit such gruesome killing and terrible crime in Nigeria of today.
He said killing people and tagging opposition bad name cannot safe Makinde and his co-travellers from defeat in March 11 governorship election as people have lost confidence in a government that specialises in propaganda and killing of innocent people.
The statement reads; “it is unfortunate that Makinde and his killer squad have embark on killing of innocent people with a view of tagging opposition with bad names. Our attention has been drawn to a video which has gone viral in the social media where some hoodlums killed a man and wearing a cloth with my inscription on him, this cannot stop your defeat.
“People know the truth about whatever antics you adopt. Don’t forget, those of you killing innocent individuals cannot escape the wrath of God, as those killed have their families too. We know Seyi Makinde looks gentle but deadly as former governor of Ekiti, Ayodele Fayose had said. But it is our believe that the police will in few days unravel the people behind the killing and circulation of the video.”
Folarin therefore alert good people of the state to be on guard and watch PDP and its agent in the next few days to the governorship election, saying “Our campaign has been so peaceful since we started, unlike the killing orchestrated by PDP in Ibarapa, Iseyin and other part of the state.”
