Ogun State Police Command has arrested Oludare Kadiri, the Deputy Speaker for the Ogun State House of Assembly, for alleged assault during the revalidation of membership of the All Progressives Congress.
Abimbola Oyeyemi, the Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed the arrest.
He was said to have accused the SSG and Adegbesan of hoarding the registration materials for the APC membership registration and revalidation.
Kadiri was being held at the Criminal Investigation Department at the Police headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta for the offence.
“Some people reported him (Kadiri) to the police, accusing him of leading thugs to the house of a former lawmaker, where they attacked him and vandalised his House,” police spokesman Oyeyemi said.
“Another person also reported that he led thugs to the residence of the SSG and also vandalised the SSG’s house.
“A Supervisory Councillor in his local government also reported that he forcibly seized the registration materials and when the police went there to recover the materials, this same man led about 20 men and assaulted the Supervisory Councillor in the presence of the police and also held the policemen hostage for almost two hours.”
