“We are going to do everything possible to make sure that our right, that of our members and integrity of court is maintained, we cant be folding our arms and watch this recklessness and abuse of power,” he added.

However, Tiamiyu Olamide, the Spokesperson to Osun State Speaker, said his principal never assaulted anyone at the scene of incident.

He said, “The speaker never assaulted anyone at the scene. The speaker was called this morning by some residents that some people were at their place to forcefully eject them from a land, he drove down to the scene, when he got there he was discussing with the leader of police officers at the operation.

“The Speaker called to a senior officer who is not at the scene and handed the phone to the officer on duty at the scene, after that they withdrew from the scene.

“After that, some of the occupants were trying to mob a guy and our chief detail took the man inside our car, so that they can’t touch him. They left with him to protect him and dropped him around State Government House so as to find his ways. It is a blatant lie, the Speaker never address any civilian.”
