Stop Using DSS to Harass the Opposition
The Ogun State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP wishes to 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙢𝙣, in strong terms 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙤𝙣𝙜𝙤𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙢𝙚𝙙𝙞𝙖 𝙩𝙧𝙞𝙖𝙡 𝙤𝙛 𝙃𝙤𝙣. 𝘿𝙖𝙢𝙞𝙡𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝘽𝙚𝙡𝙡𝙤, 𝘿𝙍𝙀, who was arrested last night by the officers of the Department of Security Service, 𝘿𝙎𝙎, 𝙞𝙣 𝙛𝙖𝙡𝙨𝙚 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙣𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙡𝙖𝙨𝙩 𝙎𝙖𝙜𝙖𝙢𝙪 𝙢𝙖𝙮𝙝𝙚𝙢.
Hon. Bello is a sitting Member at the Ogun State House of Assembly representing Sagamu Constituency 1 and a member of the PDP.
As much as we do not object to DSS or any security agency investigation into the Sagamu carnage which has allegedly claimed more than 25 lives, we think that the investigation is not being conducted with optimum professionalism and sincerity.
The ruling government of Prince Dapo Abiodun is currently supervising the over-sensationalisation of the arrest as news of the arrest was being carried by all State-Owned media organisations 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙣 𝙬𝙝𝙚𝙣 𝙣𝙤𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙞𝙣𝙘𝙧𝙞𝙢𝙞𝙣𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙬𝙖𝙨 𝙛𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙙 𝙞𝙣 𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙧𝙚𝙨𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚 𝙖𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙚 𝙤𝙛 𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙖𝙧𝙧𝙚𝙨𝙩 𝙮𝙚𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙙𝙖𝙮. The whole thing is an orchestrated attempt to give Hon. DRE a bad name just to hang him.
It is also interesting that the Sagamu 𝙧𝙚𝙨𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙝𝙤𝙣𝙤𝙪𝙧𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙚 𝙈𝙚𝙢𝙗𝙚𝙧 𝙬𝙖𝙨 𝙨𝙚𝙧𝙞𝙤𝙪𝙨𝙡𝙮 𝙫𝙖𝙣𝙙𝙖𝙡𝙞𝙯𝙚𝙙 𝙚𝙖𝙧𝙡𝙞𝙚𝙧 𝙩𝙤𝙙𝙖𝙮 𝙗𝙮 𝙨𝙤𝙢𝙚 𝙨𝙪𝙨𝙥𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝘼𝙋𝘾-𝙚𝙣𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙪𝙜𝙨. The same man who returned from London to Abeokuta where he raised contributions on the floor of the House yesterday concerning security matters in his constituency.

Yes, the same election was violently rigged by unscrupulous elements seen in a video shown in an open Court at the election Tribunal sitting in Abeokuta. This is the reason we have always held that the Sagamu killings are a direct fallout of the criminal empowerment of cultists against the people by Mr Abiodun and his APC in his needless desperation to secure an undeserved second term in office.
The onus is, however, on the DSS to rise above partisanship in its duties. The security outfit is a creation of the law and should not be reduced to a mere tool of a political witch hunt by both the Governor and his rudderless APC against perceived opponents.
The trajectories of Messrs Femi Davies, Daud Olatunji, and recently, Wale Adedayo are still fresh in our memories.
As a law-abiding political organization, our great party will work with the DSS, and indeed other security agencies in ensuring peace and tranquillity in Ogun State 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙬𝙚 𝙨𝙝𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙖𝙡𝙨𝙤 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙛𝙤𝙡𝙙 𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙬𝙖𝙩𝙘𝙝 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙂𝙤𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙣𝙤𝙧 𝙬𝙝𝙤 𝙞𝙨 𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙪𝙩𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙡𝙮 𝙗𝙞𝙩𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙞𝙢𝙢𝙞𝙣𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙚𝙡𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙖𝙡 𝙙𝙚𝙛𝙚𝙖𝙩𝙨 𝙩𝙤 𝙩𝙝𝙧𝙤𝙬 𝙞𝙣𝙣𝙤𝙘𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙢𝙚𝙢𝙗𝙚𝙧𝙨 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙥𝙪𝙗𝙡𝙞𝙘 𝙪𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙧 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙗𝙪𝙨.
It is the responsibility of Mr Abiodun, if he is truly sincere enough, to look inward, his inner circle; his appointees, functionaries, party leaders and friends in Sagamu LG to see where the smoke is coming from.
