PDP aspirant, Babayemi alleges threat to life

Published:

A governorship aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State, Prince Dotun Babayemi, has raised alarm over the threat to his life.

Babayemi disclosed that some people are after his life because of his efforts at seeking redress in a court of law.

Babayemi emerged the candidate for a parallel governorship primary of PDP while the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) identified Senator Ademola Adeleke who emerged as governor-elect as a candidate of the party.

Babayemi is seeking to get justice as regards the controversy surrounding who the authentic gubernatorial candidate of the party is in the state.

In a save-my-soul message issued by his Media Office on Wednesday, Babayemi admonished that politics should be played without coercion or harassment.

According to him, he has been receiving some threat messages, voice notes threatening his life “ some laced with vituperation and different insults being hurled at me.”

“ I can’t fathom why some people have chosen this dangerous and uncivilized lane,” he said.

Babayemi who warned those behind such unholy acts to desist maintained that he would never be cowed in his resolve to seek justice at any level of opportunity offered by legal entitlements.

“Those sending threatening voice notes and their sponsors have failed. No matter how the course of justice cannot be circumvented through such crude means. Besides, nobody can intimidate me” he maintained

While assuring that he was already doing the needful in intimating relevant security agencies about the development, Babayemi implored his supporters, stakeholders and party members across the state to continue to be law-abiding.
