Osun Police Command has confirmed the attack on the Ede residence of the parents of the Minority Leader of the State House of Assembly, Akogun Kofoworola Babajide by some hoodlums.

In a statement in Osogbo, the state capital, the Police Public Relations Officer, Yemisi Opalola said that the crime was perpetrated by some unidentified hoodlums on Friday night.

Mrs. Opalola hinted that investigations had begun on the incident to arrest those involved for immediate prosecution.

Meanwhile, the state Caretaker Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Dr. Adekunle Akindele has called on Governor Adegboyega Oyetola and security agencies to immediately arrest the situation in Ede and other parts of the state before it escalates.

Dr. Adekunle Akindele condemned the attack on the House Minority Leader, describing the attack as barbaric and uncalled for.

He appealed to the people of the state, particularly residents of Ede to remain calm and be vigilant as the party would work with security agencies to bring the perpetrators of the heinous crime to justice.

The yet-to-be identified hoodlums last night burnt down the residence of the parents of the Minority Leader of the Osun State House of Assembly and Akogun of Ede, Kofoworola Babajide in Ede.

Chief Babajide representing Ede North State Constituency in the Assembly in a chat with Radio Nigeria explained that some armed thugs had earlier attacked members of PDP during a ward meeting in Ede.

He claimed his father had not been seen since the incident and was not sure whether he was inside the house when it was burnt down by the hoodlums.
