The Osun State Commissioner for Regional Integration, Mr. Bola Ilori, has stated that people suspected to be political thugs who assaulted him in Akure on Thursday were acting on the instructions of a top government appointee in Ondo State (name withheld).
The commissioner was assaulted by suspected political thugs at the zonal meeting of the All Progressives Congress in Akure, the Ondo State capital.
The meeting was took place at the International Events Centre, Akure, on Thursday.
Ilori, representing Osun State at the forum, was assaulted when he left the hall to grant interview with reporters at the entrance of the hall.
The commissioner’s clothes and underwear were torn by his attackers.
Without any solid explanation, Ilori said that a top Ondo State Government official sent the thugs to attack him.
“It is the (name withheld) that sent them,” Ilori alleged.
Ilori and his supporters left the venue shortly after.
