Over the weekend in Akoko North-West Local Government Area of Ondo State, a regrettable incident unfolded when Olumide Awolumate, also known as Cuba, the chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ward 1, engaged in a physical altercation with Olubunmi Osadahun, the state’s Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development.
This unfortunate event, which turned into a physical assault, apparently stemmed from a disagreement regarding the distribution of relief supplies in the region.
This incident took place at the residence of the APC ward chairman, and a viral video captured Awolumate resorting to using a plastic chair during the brawl. The severity of the physical confrontation left bystanders in shock, and the video has generated considerable attention on social media platforms.
In the aftermath of this altercation, there has been widespread condemnation from various quarters, accompanied by calls for a thorough investigation into the matter. Concerned citizens and political observers have urged the APC leadership in Ondo State to take prompt and resolute action to address the situation and ensure accountability for those involved.
Narrating his side of the story, the APC ward chairman said: “I was assaulted in my house by the power-drunk Commissioner for Women Affairs with her son in the presence of a police officer.
“I was in my house playing Ludo. All of a sudden, she came in the company of her son, another man, and a police officer. When they got to me, the police officer said I was needed at the station at Oke-Agbe. Before I could respond, the Commissioner’s son jumped at me and started fighting me. He even tore my clothes.
“His mother (the commissioner) joined him to beat me. All this happened in the presence of the police officer that they came with.”
Attempts to obtain the commissioner’s account of the incident were unsuccessful, as she was said to be hospitalized in an undisclosed medical facility, undergoing treatment.
