Osun 2018: Ife Okada Riders Raise Alarm Over Death Threats
As the Osun governorship election is fast approaching, politics is tearing at the unity within the Amalgamated Commercial Motorcyclist Riders (ACMR), Ile Ife branch.
Some commercial motorcyclists, who craved anonymity, have raised alarm that there are threats to their lives.
The motorcyclists disclosed that crisis started when the leadership of ACMR Ile Ife branch led by Tunde Akanbi, instructed all members to support Senator Iyiola Omisore of the Social Democratic Party (PDP) as their governorship candidate.
Those who are supporting the Peoples Democratic Party’s Gbenga Owolabi as their governorship candidate and others washed their hands off, saying they can not be intimidated.
Both Omisore and Owolabi hail from Ile-Ife.
