The Osun state Police Command has invited the former Deputy Governor of the state, Senator Iyiola Omisore over the 2014 alleged assault case reported to the command by the late Senator representing Osun West Senatorial District, Late Senator Isiaka Adetunji Adeleke.
According to a letter from the Command titled “Invitation to Police station” dated 20, October, 2017 addressed to Senator Omisore, he (Omisore) is expected to meet with the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence department.
The letter signed by Deputy Commissioner of Police, Umege Uzochukwu reads ; ” You are invited to meet with the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department in connection with a case of Assault occasioning harm reported by late Senator Isiaka Adeleke against you”.
Osun Police Command in the letter added ” looking forward to seeing you on the 27th day of October, 2017 at about 1200hrs please”.
It will be recalled that Late Senator Isiaka Adeleke while in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2014 alleged that he was assaulted by Senator Omisore during a meeting of PDP governorship aspirants for the 2014 governorship election.
Late Senator Adeleje , a PDP governorship aspirant then specifically alleged the immediate past Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Jelili Adesiyan of allegedly assaulting him during an hot argument with Senator Omisore at the venue of a meeting with the PDP screening committee while both Senator Omisore and the former Minister vehemently denied Late Senator Adeleke’s allegations.
Late Senator Adeleke few days after he alleged that he was assaulted shunned the PDP governorship primary election which produced Senator Omisore as the PDP candidate for the 2014 governorship election in Osun state..
He then decamped into the All Progressives Congress (APC) where he was offered the Osun west Senatorial ticket in 2015
