Police invite Omisore over alleged attack on late Adeleke

The police have invited a former deputy governor of Osun State, Iyiola Omisore, over an alleged attack on the late Senator Isiaka Adeleke in the build up to the governorship primary election of the Peoples Democratic Party in 2014.

The late senator, who was a governorship candidate of the PDP shortly before the 2014 governorship election in Osun State had accused Omisore and a former Minister of State for Police Affairs, Jelili Adesiyan and one Sogo Agboola, of beating him up at a hotel where he had gone to meet officials of the PDP sent to conduct the primary.

Adeleke, eventually defected to the All Progressives Congress ahead of the poll  to assist Governor Rauf Aregbesola to win his second term while he (Adeleke) contested Osun West Senatorial Election and won. He, however, died on April 23, 2017.

Despite the death of the complainant, the police last week sent an invitation to Omisore asking him to report to the Police Headquarters in Osogbo concerning the case of assault levelled against him by the late senator.

Omisore and the family of the late senator seem to have buried their differences as a result of the alleged attack on Adeleke because Omisore was one of the PDP chieftains that supported Adeleke’s younger brother, Ademola to win the by-election held on July 8.
