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.

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 ๐™—๐™ช๐™ฉ ๐™ฌ๐™š ๐™จ๐™๐™–๐™ก๐™ก ๐™–๐™ก๐™จ๐™ค ๐™ฃ๐™ค๐™ฉ ๐™›๐™ค๐™ก๐™™ ๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง ๐™–๐™ง๐™ข๐™จ ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™ฌ๐™–๐™ฉ๐™˜๐™ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™‚๐™ค๐™ซ๐™š๐™ง๐™ฃ๐™ค๐™ง ๐™ฌ๐™๐™ค ๐™ž๐™จ ๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ก๐™ก ๐™ช๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™š๐™ง๐™ก๐™ฎ ๐™—๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™š๐™ง ๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™ ๐™ž๐™ข๐™ข๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™š๐™ฃ๐™ฉ ๐™š๐™ก๐™š๐™˜๐™ฉ๐™ค๐™ง๐™–๐™ก ๐™™๐™š๐™›๐™š๐™–๐™ฉ๐™จ ๐™ฉ๐™ค ๐™ฉ๐™๐™ง๐™ค๐™ฌ ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™ฃ๐™ค๐™˜๐™š๐™ฃ๐™ฉ ๐™ข๐™š๐™ข๐™—๐™š๐™ง๐™จ ๐™ค๐™› ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™ฅ๐™ช๐™—๐™ก๐™ž๐™˜ ๐™ช๐™ฃ๐™™๐™š๐™ง ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™—๐™ช๐™จ.

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.
