A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Osun chapter, Prince Dotun Babayemi has said that his life is being threatened after he filed a lawsuit seeking to replace the governor-elect, Ademola Adeleke as the authentic PDP governorship candidate.
The PDP chieftain, in a statement signed by him, claimed that he has been receiving voice notes threatening to harm him over the case.
He went on to state that he was not intimidated by the threats and those who were trying to dissuade him from his call for justice have failed
An Osogbo Federal High Court, as well as the Court of Appeal, Akure, had held that Senator Ademola Adeleke was the authentic PDP governorship candidate.
However, Babayemi vowed to appeal the judgment unless necessary steps were taken to address the anomalies.
The statement read in parts, “Before and after the July 16 governorship election in Osun, I have received a number of voice notes; some laced with vituperation and different insults being hauled at me while some are outright threat to my life. I can’t fathom why some people have chosen this dangerous and uncivilised lane.
“Those sending threatening voice notes and their sponsors have failed. No matter how, the course of justice can not be circumvented through such crude means. Besides, nobody can intimidate me.”
