Video: Mixed Reactions As Constituents Beat Osun Lawmaker Over Alleged Neglect, Economic Hardship




The House of Representatives member representing Ifelodun/Boripe/Odo-Otin federal constituency in Osun State, Hon. Olusoji Adetunji, was allegedly harassed by his constituents during a recent visit to his hometown.

A viral social media video shows the lawmaker and his group being attacked by residents who allege he neglected their welfare, even though they had given him substantial electoral support.

It was observed in the video that locals surrounded him, screaming and calling for the representative to be beaten.

One woman cautioned the man filming against recording the incident. However, the person behind the camera insisted on filming, insulting the representative and other politicians.

Another user who corroborated the incident, @DefenceTimes1, said: “Seems like the poor have started eating the rich in Osun state as people of Ada in Boripe LGA of Osun ambushed their HOR member and descended on him heavily for failing them.”

The incident prompted mixed reactions as other commenters also chipped in:

“Unfortunately, most people in their constituencies will rather roll out the red carpet for the thieves in NASS for the little crumbs they’ll sprinkle on them when he arrives than hold them accountable!
