Man Accused Of Assaulting Ondo Women Affairs Commissioner Narrates Ordeal


The distribution of fuel subsidy palliatives in Arigidi Akoko, Ondo State was marred with violence, after the Commissioner for Women Affairs, Adebunmi Osadahun, reportedly attacked the Ward Chairman of the party in Arigidi, in Akoko North West, Olumide Awolumate.

The Chairman while narrating his ordeal on Sunday noted that fight broke out when some leaders of the APC from Arigidi Akoko, alleged that the exercise was shrouded in secrecy by government officials and kicked against the arrangement.

He added that elders of the party also accused the Commissioner of marginalizing him in the sharing of the palliative.

The Commissioner, Osadahun, was seen in a video circulating on social media on Sunday afternoon, exchanging alterations with the man.

Awolumate said that there was an inequitable distribution of palliatives, which many people have been complaining about while some residents boycotted the exercise.

“I was assaulted in my house by the power-drunk Commissioner for Women Affairs with her son in the presence of a police officer.

“Today, I was in my house relaxing when the Commissioner came with her son, one other boy, and a police officer.

“The police officer told me they needed my attention at the station in Oke Agbe, and before I could respond, the commissioner pounced on me, tore my clothes, and the Commissioner also joined in beating me.

“The Police officer is still here, and I have resisted arrest, and I don’t know why they had to descend on me to hand me such treatment.”
