The Osun State Governor-elect, Senator Ademola Adeleke, has asked his supporters to be peaceful while celebrating his victory in the just-concluded governorship election.
HausaToday earlier reported some youths took to the street and destroyed campaign billboards of the incumbent governor, Gboyega Oyetola and presidential candidate of the All Progressive Party, Bola Tinubu.
Adeleke in a statement on Sunday by his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, warned his supporters and members of his political organisation against engaging in the destruction of properties and attack on opposition members.
The former lawmaker warned that those celebrating his victory should observe decorum or risk being disowned as members of his political family.
Adeleke condemned the reported violent conduct of the youths and advised those involved in such behaviour to stop forthwith.
“It has come to the attention of the Governor-Elect that some youth are engaging in violent celebrations, leading to isolated attacks on vehicles and even individuals. This is unacceptable conduct and those involved in such behaviour are warned to stop forthwith.
“While commiserating with any victim of such incident, the Adeleke Campaign Organisation Is hereby informing the general public that it did not authorise any such demonstration and those involved are definitely not part of the Adeleke Campaign Organisation,” he said.
