Mr Akin Adeyi, a retired officer of the Department of State Services and the MD/CEO/owner of Security Express Concerns Limited and Kwality Security Services Limited, beside Olorunda Local government INEC Office, Osogbo has sought the protection of the Osun State police command and the DSS over several sponsored assaults and threat to my life by some privileged people in the state.
Adeyi in a letter addressed to the Director of DSS, Osun state Commissioner Of Police and AIG Zone XI said at about 4am, On Saturday, 3rd December, 2022 some people led about one hundred thugs and a few policemen clothed in black Tee Shirts uniforms to his business place, Kwality Bar & Resort and beat, cut those staff they met there with cutlasses
The letter reads in part:
“It is a fact that I exercised my right as a member of the People’s Democratic Party early 2021 when I approached the PDP Governorship Aspirants Screening Appeal Committee with a petition against the academic qualifications and records of Senator Ademola Adeleke.
“The 13 Man Panel, which was headed by Professor Jerry Gana, had other members who were former governors and Senators. After two days of their critical study and analysis of my petition and attached documents which were Senator Ademola Adeleke’s credentials, the panel agreed that the credentials contained lots of damaging errors and fraudulent claims.
“The panel thanked and appreciated me and thereafter directed that the Osun PDP and the aspirant’s handlers work on the documents before its final submission to INEC.
“Arising from this, my life has been frequently threatened such that I had to formally complain to the police authority and the DSS also the Osun and Nigeria public.
“Since then, the threats and attacks have continue unabated. But, i decided to keep my cool, bearing in mind that i was after nobody and can only be held responsible for what i say, not what people inferred and the trust speaks for itself. Till this moment, the credentials of the Governor still remain a subject of litigation but I have since said what needed to be said and moved on. At this juncture, however, it is apparent that silence is no longer golden.
“Before it’s illegal and criminal demolition by Governor Ademola Adeleke’s agents, Kwality Resort spread over four plots of land and its worth was in the several million of Naira.
“To the best of my knowledge, freedom of expression is a constitutional right, and expressing my view about the controversial academic record of senator Ademola which remains clouded till now is never a crime to warrant the state-backed demolition of my business place overnight.
“The place was demolished and leveled without prior notice while the facilities therein were carted away while some others were left in the open. I have in the last 16 hours examined the situation and can confirm that those who are behind the dastardly act are not done. I believe that the development is just a preamble to what is yet to come.
“My life is their target and I hereby appeal that the police and DSS look into the matter and save my life and those of my family members”.
