S-South women hail judiciary over Aregbesola

The South-South Women Organisation has commended the judiciary for the speedy bail process accorded the governorship candidate of the Action Congress (AC) in Osun state, Eng Rauf Aregbesola. The group said the arrest of Aregbesola over allegations of forgery shocked the whole nation.

In a statement signed by Mrs Vicky Djevuwdu and Esther Egoro, President and Secretary respectively on behalf the group, the women insisted that the allegation against the former Commissioner for Works in Lagos State was political and advised the court to handle the matter without bias.

“We wish to state that the allegation against Aregbesola is worrisome because this great son of Yourubaland is a detribalised Nigerian that has touched the lives of many especially the masses of South-South region and any attack on him is an attack on our poor people who have benefitted from his humanitarian services,” the statement said.
