OPC scribe on Okota killing:Ademola not our member - ITREALMS

ITREALMS:
The Publicity Secretary of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) Barrister Yinka Oguntimehin, has confirmed that the man killed by the mob on Saturday at Okota, Lagos, is not a member of the Aare Gani Adams-led OPC, reports ITREALMS.

In a statement made available to journalists, Oguntimehin dismissed the report that a member of the group was lyched to death following an attempt by some hoodlums to truncate the election process in Okota, Lagos. 

He said the report at his disposal indicates that a member of the late Faseun's group was killed by an irate mob, following an attempt by some thugs to disrupt election process at the Okota area of Lagos state. 

He, however, reaffirmed the commitment of the group to a peaceful, free, fair and credible elections, saying  OPC of today is totally different from that of the past. 


"I need to say it clearly that Ademola is not a member of our group. Ours is a group of professionals,and well educated members.We have our structure  across the country, and everybody can attest to the fact that the Aare Gani Adams- led members of the OPC are not vagabonds or thugs. 

For a very long time now, we have transited into a brand new OPC, with a clear-cut ideology. And part of our ideologies is to ensure peace, across the country,most especially, in the south west." 

Oguntimehin, urged Nigerians to remain peaceful till the end of the election process. 

"From the turnouts of people across the country, I think Nigerians are committed to this democracy. We have started well, and I will urge all the electorate to remain peaceful,by cooperating with the police, so as to ensure a free, fair and credible election." he said.
