A political thug of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Kazeem Oyewale, popularly known as Asiri Eniba, was on Friday arrested in Osun State by personnel of the Nigerian Army.
This is coming a few hours to the Osun State governorship election coming on July 16.
Asiri Eniba, who is the Chairman of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Osogbo Branch, was arrested alongside some other armed political hoodlums at Ojurin motor park, Old Garage, Osogbo.
“He was arrested along with two of his boys. He was released but placed under Nigerian Army’s watch,” a source confirmed to SaharaReporters.
The political thugs were caught with two guns, cutlasses and Indian hemp.
They were subsequently whisked away to the Army Barracks, Ede.
The NURTW boss and his boys were however released following intervention from some top government officials but placed under Nigerian army’s watch.
On July 6, Ataoja of Osogbo, Oba Jimoh Olanipekun Oyetunji, accused Asiri Eniba of disrupting the peace of Osogbo when thugs invaded his palace during the visit of Ademola Adeleke, candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“Go and tell them and let Asiri Eniba know that I won’t tolerate disruption of peace in my domain,” the monarch had said.
