The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has reacted to the alleged siege of its secretariat on Monday, saying it remained unperturbed over any form of intimidation.
When our correspondent visited the secretariat located along Ota-Efun Road, Osogbo, the Osun State capital, policemen were seen in their large number.
Meanwhile, the PDP Chairman, Hon. Soji Adagunodo, who confirmed the heavy presence of police operatives said the party did not invite them.
“We saw grand mobilisation of police to our secretariat this morning. Whatever way the whole scenario turned out to be, we are not disturbed, we are not afraid. Their presence does not affect us as a political party.
“We received a call from the Deputy Commissioner of Police that we are protesting. On the contrary, we are not protesting but only jubilating because of the victory of Senator Ademola Adeleke at the tribunal.
“The APC are jittery after they organized a protest and they thought we were going to organise a counter-protest but we said no, we allowed people to react and thank God that they were condemned entirety on the social media for their protest. ”
He commended the police for being professional during their stay at the secretariat, saying they were doing their job.
She further explained that there was a tip-off that some suspected thugs were planning an attack on the place, hence the need for the command to deploy the police so as to forestall the breakdown of law and order.
