A former Deputy Governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore has been invited by the police over an alleged attack on Senator Isiaka Adeleke in the build-up to the governorship primary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in 2014.
The late Senator was a governorship candidate of the PDP shortly before the 2014 governorship election in Osun State.
Adeleke had accused Omisore and a former Minister of Police Affairs, Jelili Adesiyan and one Sogo Agboola of beating him up at a hotel where he had gone to meet officials of the PDP sent to conduct the primary.
Adeleke dumped the PDP for the All Progressives Congress, APC, ahead of the poll and assisted Governor Rauf Aregbesola to win his second term.
He then contested Osun West Senatorial Election and won.
Despite the death of the complainant, the police last week, sent an invitation to Omisore asking him to report to the Police Headquarters in Osogbo concerning the case of assault against him by the late senator.
The letter was signed by the Deputy Commissioner of Police State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Umega Uzochukwu.
It reads, “You are invited to meet with the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department in connection with a case of assault occasioning harm reported by Late Senator Isiaka Adeleke against you.” (DailyPost)
