Police Affairs Minister vows to beat up ex-Senator when he leaves office
Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Jelili Adesiyan, has declared his intention to engage a former governor of Osun State, Senator Isiaka Adeleke in a boxing bout after serving as a member of the Federal Executive Council, FEC.
According to him, his position in government prevented him from beating Senator Adeleke during a stakeholders meeting of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, at Ideal Nest Hotel, Osogbo in April, this year during run-off to the PDP primaries in the state.
The Minister, who spoke with newsmen in Osogbo, claimed he was frustrated by Adeleke and his supporters at the event but remained calm despite all intimidation.
“If I had not been a Minister I would have beaten Adeleke to pulp on that day.
“I will one day leave office as a Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and any time I leave office I will fight Adeleke.
“He alleged that I punched him on the chest, for God’s sake, if I had punched Adeleke, could he still be moving around.”
Adesiyan said neither him nor the Governorship candidate of the PDP in the state, Senator Iyiola Omisore instigated the attack on Adeleke as claimed by both Adeleke and APC.
Responding, Senator Adeleke, who recently dumped the PDP for the APC, stated that he was too mature to join issues with the Minister.
Speaking through his media aide, Olumide Lawal, the one-time governor said the matter was already before the panel of enquiry set up by Osun State Government, adding that he would wait for the outcome before making further comments.
