Rescue Oyo Mission ’23, an interest group within the opposition All Progressives Congress in Oyo State raised the alarm on Wednesday about the destruction of billboards of APC aspirants.

Its coordinator, Dauda Kolawole, called on the police and other security agencies to check the activities of political thugs hiding under the Park Management System in the state to frustrate opposition political parties.

In a statement on Wednesday, Mr Kolawole attributed the action to political intolerance, claiming that in the last 48 hours, at least five billboards and several posters of APC aspirants had been destroyed by suspected PMS members within the Ibadan metropolis.

He added that a billboard belonging to an APC governorship aspirant, Akeem Agbaje, was vandalised on Monday on Iwo Road in Ibadan.

Mr Kolawole described the perpetrators’ act as reckless, provocative and lawless impunity.

He added that several billboards mounted by other APC aspirants had also either been pulled down or destroyed by the miscreants and called on Governor Seyi Makinde to discourage violence and brigandage.

He also urged the governor to ensure a peaceful atmosphere where people could make political choices.

Mr Kolawole also appealed to already agitated members of the APC and the affected aspirants to remain calm, expressing the hope that the situation would soon abate
