I Will Beat Up Adeleke When I Leave Office – Minister

Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Jelili Adesiyan has threatened to engage former governor of Osun State, Senator Isiaka Adeleke, who recently decamped from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in a physical fight whenever he left office as a member of the Federal Executive Council FEC.

Adesiyan explained that his position as a member of the FEC prevented him from beating Senator Adeleke during a stakeholders meeting of the PDP at Ideal Nest Hotel, Osogbo in April, this year,during run-off to the PDP primaries in the state.

In his response, Senator Adeleke responded that he was too matured a politician to join issues with the Minister.

Adeleke who spoke through his Media aide, Mr Olumide Lawal stated that the matter was already before the panel of enquiry set up by Osun State Government.

Shedding light on his reason for wanting to ‘discipline’ Adeleke, the Minister told newsmen in Osogbo that he was frustrated by Adeleke and his supporters at the event, but remained calm despite all intimidation, saying “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.”

He said neither him nor the Governorship candidate of the PDP in the state; Senator Iyiola Omisore was instrumental to the attack on Adeleke as claimed by both Adeleke and his new party, All Progressives Congress (APC).

  • It is unfortunate if a Minister of Federal Republic of Nigeria can uttered this kind of statement. He should be called to order.

  • hen hen! this man is just confirming to us that all allegations against him as regards bola ige is indeed true. I don’t know his age, but I think he should be old enough to have outgrown thuggery and hooliganism. if I were GEJ, I will immediately remove him so that he can just go and commit that crime that will eventually put him behind bars where he really belongs.

  • This jelili of a man is living up to what he is being called – a criminal, a killer. how can a serving minister come out and say he will beat up a former gov. that was how they bragged they’ll deal wt Bola Ige and he was eventually assadinated at his Bodija residence. So I urge Alh Adeleke to be weary and mindful of this killers
