Assaulted Osun Commissioner, Bola Ilori Says Ondo Government Official Sent The Attackers”

Ilori was assaulted by some suspected political thugs at the zonal meeting of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Akure.

The All Progressives Congress committee meeting on true federalism held at global event centre of Ondo state in Akure was nearly marred by an attack on the Osun state commissioner for regional integration, Bola Ilori.

He accused the secretary to the state Government, Ifedayo Abegunde as the brain behind the attack. He and his supporters left the venue shortly after.

Ilori, a close ally of the former Lagos State Governor and national leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu worked against the State Governor, Mr Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN during the governorship election that produced him (Akeredolu).

He was rushed back to the venue of the programme nearly naked and one of the boys around from Ondo state offered his shirt to Ilori, while the programme was halted by delegates from Osun state.

The meeting which was chaired by Rachel Akpabio received recommendations from participants from Ekiti, Osun and Ondo States.

"It is the (name withheld) that sent them", Ilori alleged. There was exchange of fisticuffs between the delegates from Osun and Ondo States leaving some people injured in the process.

Olowolabi said "what happened is sad but it is avoidable.it is apparent the Osun delegates came prepared with thugs, charms, ammunition, cudgels to an event which was supposed to be an all APC event". They have come here to foment trouble. He was not the head of delegates from Osun.

Ilori speaking after the encounter revealed that he was attacked by thugs acting on the instructions of a top government appointee in Ondo State (name withheld).
