Ismail Omipidan, Chief Press Secretary to Governor Gboyega Oyetola has debunked the rumor going that his principal’s convoy was attacked on sallah day.
Omipidan on Saturday, reacting to a video going round that Governor Oyetola was attacked said the video is fake and misleading.
In a statement signed by Omipidan and obtained by Blaze News said “This is to alert the people of Osun and the general public to the circulation of a fake video of purported attack on Governor Adegboyega Oyetola’s convoy at the Osogbo Eid praying ground today.
“The video is being circulated by unscrupulous agents of the sinking Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Osun, in further demonstration of their political desperation.
“The PDP should know that there’s no amount of lies and propaganda that can make its candidate win the forthcoming governorship election.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the said video in circulation is that of an incident during the 2020 nationwide EndSARS protest.
“There was no attack on Governor Oyetola’s convoy or on any individual before, during and after the Eid prayers at the Osogbo praying ground.
“The public is hereby advised to disregard the fake and misleading video in its entirety, and should be wary of purveyors of fake news.
“The spreading of the video is another indication that the PDP has nothing to campaign on and is jittery of the impending defeat that awaits it at the July 16 governorship poll.”
