Here’s a part of the statement Omipidan released titled: “Osun PDP agents spreading fake video”:

“The video is being circulated by unscrupulous agents of the sinking PDP in Osun, in further demonstration of their political desperation. The PDP should know that there’s no amount of lies and propaganda that can make its candidate win the forthcoming governorship election. “

“For the avoidance of doubt, the said video in circulation is that of an incident during the 2020 nationwide #EndSARS protest. There was no attack on Governor Oyetola’s convoy or on any individual before, during and after the Eid prayers on the Osogbo praying ground.”
