Former Governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola, has described some politicians joining the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as killers.
He stated this on Friday after revalidating his APC membership at his Ifofin, Ward 8, Ilesa East Local Government Area of Osun State.
Aregbesola who is currently the Minister of Interior however did not mention the “killers” by name.
The minister however noted that all manners of people could join the party, but when it comes for members to work together, people of shady character must be avoided.
He noted that he would remain with his people in the APC but will however not relate with people of no good character.
“Killers have joined our party and the law guiding our party doesn’t say we can’t admit them when a law court has not convicted them. You know the killers or you don’t know them?
“You know miscreants or you don’t know miscreants? If we will be in the same party, we will not accept anything that will denigrate Bola Ige. He was our father. In this area, Bola Ige was our father.
“Are you happy that Bola Ige was killed? I am a son to the late Bola Ige. Whoever denigrates Bola Ige is our enemy. Whoever wants to use Bola Ige’s tomb to climb to a higher height would not achieve his aim. When we want to aspire for a position here, your name and antecedent will determine how you will be treated,” he said.
