The capital of Osun State, Osogbo, has a significant police presence at key intersections and roundabouts on Tuesday morning.
Olaiya Junction, Oke-Fia and LAMECO Roundabouts, Old Garage/Freedom Park, Ayetoro Roundabout, Osun State High Court buildings, among other places in the town, have police presence.
The Supreme Court’s decision, which is scheduled to be delivered today in Abuja, may not be unrelated to the presence of the heavily armed police officers.
Following hearings from Adegboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress and Governor Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party over the Osun 2022 gubernatorial election, the supreme court set today, Tuesday, for its decision.
The Osun gubernatorial election tribunal later overturned Ademola Adeleke’s victory, which he had won.
Ademola Adeleke was subsequently recognized as the legitimately elected governor of Osun by the Appellate Court, which overturned the tribunal’s decision.
