A group, known as Matagbamole, on Tuesday petitioned the State Commissioner of Police and Director of State Security Services over the defacement of the fence in the house of a former governor of the state, Olusegun Osoba.
The group in the petition signed by its spokesperson, Clement Adeniyi, accused some political opponents of Mr. Osoba of carrying out the deed.
It, therefore, called on the authorities to investigate and uncover the vandals.
‘We, Matagbamole Group, on behalf of our teeming members and other associates of His Excellency, Chief Olusegun Osoba, former Governor of Ogun State, write to lodge this complaint on the way and manner the former governor, Chief Osoba, was attacked, and his associates, by unknown hoodlums, who inscribed uncharitable and unpalatable words on the perimeter fence enclosing his house at GRA, Ibara Housing Estate, Abeokuta,” the petition read.
“We see this unbecoming behaviour of some political opponents in the state as disrespect to a former Governor in the state. We also see this as an affront on the personality of Chief Osoba and his associates which is uncalled for. We, therefore, call on your good office to see this complain as a call to forestall future occurrences and to enable your office get to the root of the matter of those who perpetrated this ungodly act as our state is severally and generally known to be a peaceful on.”
