The Osun State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has dissociated itself from any involvement in the abduction of Muibat, wife of the speaker of the State House of Assembly, Najeem Salam.
The statement was made public public yesterday by Diran Odeyemi, the state PDP director of Publicity, Media and Strategy, who said it was criminal for any right thinking man to think the party is capable of doing so.
According to reports, Salam was kidnapped on Tuesday by hoodlums while returning home from her shop at Oke-Oyo area of Ejigbo in Osun State.
Odeyemi said, “It is criminal of any right thinking person to think that way. The PDP, as one of the opposition parties in the state, is not violent and more so, we don’t have anything to do with the speaker.
“As a matter of fact, we in the PDP even sympathise with the speaker for the kidnap of his wife by suspected kidnappers.
“And it is our wish that she comes back home unhurt,” Odeyemi added.
While speaking on the kidnap, Kunle Oyatomi, the ACN director of Publicity, Research and Strategy in Osun State urged the Federal Government to tackle desicively the problem of insecurity in the country.
Oyatomi further urged the state police command to do everything possible in securing the immediate release of Muibat from her captors and ensure her safe return to her family.
