The Osun West senatorial candidate of Labour Party, Mrs. Romoke Edu-Ogunlana narrowly escaped death yesterday, Morning as thugs attacked her convoy in Ikire area of Irewole local government of Osun State.
She was, however, not lucky as she sustained deep matchete cut on her right arm while her new hilux van was burnt. The former commissioner who is currently receiving medical attention at a private hospital accused the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Irewole/Isokan/Ayedire Federal Constituency, Col.Falabi (rtd) who lost yesterday’s election to the candidate of the All Progressives Congress as the mastermind.
Col. Olayiwola Falabi, she alleged, sent thugs after her after he had lost the election thinking that “I was responsible for his defeat in the hands of the APC”. Though she had reported the case, she said that the PDP was trying to rope the APC for the act.
