The Publicity Secretary, Ogun State Executive Caretaker Committee of the All Progressives Congress, Tunde Oladunjoye, has raised the alarm of alleged threat to his life.
The alarm was raised in a petition he wrote to the Acting Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu following a phone call warning him of a planned attack.
In the petition dated January 23, 2019, Oladunjoye, sought the protection of the police for himself and his family.
The petition reads: “At exactly 7.31pm on January 13, I received a phone call from an MTN line. The caller speaking in Yoruba language identified himself as Segun.

“He warned me seriously that I have been marked for an attack between ‘today and Sunday’ and begged me not to take his information with levity.
“The informant, who sounded agitated, hurriedly switched off my line. My immediate check on the number via the Truecaller App could not link the number to any name.
“Realising that our recent intelligence reports have pointed towards just one direction, and coupled with the fact that the informant said my time starts from ‘now’, I immediately issued an SOS message, which I shared on the social media and also sent to the APC leaders.”
Oladunjoye attached to the petition, a letter he had earlier written to President Muhammadu Buhari over the political violence in Ogun State from October 1, 2018.
“In view of the ongoing, I hereby, with due respect, seek protection of the police for my family and me. I also urge you to investigate the threat to my life.
“I repeat the demand of our party, the APC, that the IG should set up an independent panel to investigate the growing political and other related violent incidents in our once peaceful state, especially since October 1, 2018 till date,” he added.
