The Minister of Interior, and immediate past governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola, says killers have been admitted to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Although he did not mention the names of the killers, the minister cautioned the party against working with such persons.
He spoke at his Ifofin, Ward 8, Illesa East Local Government Area, on Friday, after he revalidated his membership of the ruling party.
In a viral video obtained by VANTAGE NEWS on Saturday, Aregbesola who was joined by some top politicians of the party and supporters said miscreants have joined the party to reap from where they did not sow.
VANTAGE NEWS learnt that Aregbesola was not happy with the defection of a certain politician into the ruling party that was made possible by the state governor, Adegboyega Oyetola.
The Governor and his predecessor, Aregbesola have not been having the best of relationships in recent months.
“Killers have joined our party and the law guiding our party doesn’t say we can’t admit them when a law court has not convicted them. You know the killers or you don’t know them?
“You know miscreants or you don’t know miscreants? If we will be in the same party, we will not accept anything that will denigrate Bola Ige. He was our father. In this area, Bola Ige was our father.
“Are you happy that Bola Ige was killed? I am a son to the late Bola Ige. Whoever denigrates Bola Ige is our enemy. Whoever wants to use Bola Ige’s tomb to climb to a higher height would not achieve his aim. When we want to aspire for a position here, your name and antecedent will determine how you will be treated,” Aregbesola said.
