There is a palpable fear in the state of Osun following the arrest of a notorious criminal Afolabi Fadahunsi, popularly called Carlos, by men of the Nigeria Police from the Federal Criminal Investigation Department, FCID, Alagbon, Lagos.
Carlos, said to be on the payroll of the governing party in the state, the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, was arrested Saturday morning, with deadly weapons including two (2) units of Berreta guns and 56 live ammunition, by gallant officers from Lagos State before he was handed to men of the State Criminal Investigation Department, Osogbo, for further investigation and prosecution.
However, since the hand-over to officers in Osogbo, there has been rumour of the state government making efforts to circumvent the laws and get the arrested thug off the hook so as for him to continue to wreck havoc on members of the opposition APC.
Since November 27, 2022, when Adeleke was inaugurated as governor, there have been series of coordinated attacks on members of the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC, across the state, particularly in Ilesha.
Many notable cabinet members of the last administration have also been reportedly pencilled down for attacks and assassination.
“There has been an upward move in the spate of organised crime and violence associated with politics since the emergence of Senator Ademola Adeleke as Osun governor,” a human rights activist, Dayo Adereti explained while speaking to this reporter.
According to Adereti, “It is no longer news that some of the violent attacks experienced in the state in recent time are politically motivated. However, it’s frightening to understand that most of the assailants are known political enforcers ( thugs) of the ruling PDP in Osun State.
