“There was an assassination attempt on my life!” – Shina Peller Cries Out

-O. Adejo

Shina Peller, a member representing the Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Iwajowa/Kajola federal constituency in the House of Representatives has alleged that there was an attempt on his life.

He claimed that the assassination attempt took place on his way from Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, to the Oke-Ogun area of the state.

Peller is one of the aspirants vying for the Oyo North Senatorial seat on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC). He went further to state that no primary election took place in the zone.

He said that the APC primaries ought to have been held on Saturday, and insisted that the election could not be held due to the selfish interest of some bad elements in the APC.

He called on President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene in the situation.

Peller said, “There have been calls from loved ones, supporters, close associates and family about the controversy surrounding the All Progressives Congress (APC) Oyo North Senatorial Primaries, which was scheduled to hold on Saturday, 28th May 2022 at the Iseyin District Grammar School (IDGS), Iseyin, as well as the assassination attempt on my life.

“This statement will, therefore, state the true picture of what transpired. The APC primaries ought to have been held on Saturday peacefully and transparently, but couldn’t hold due to the selfish interest of some bad elements within the party who are determined to impose a candidate on all.

“My life is seriously being threatened just because I am trying to protect the interest of my dear people from the Oke Ogun region. I am using this opportunity to call on President Muhammadu Buhari, relevant stakeholders and security agencies to call Senator Teslim Folarin and his evil machinery to order, as people will hold him accountable if anything happens to me, my family or my aides.”

Shina Peller has been a member of the House of Representatives since May 2019.
