The Ademola Adeleke Campaign Organisation on Monday raised an alarm over a plot to start a smear political war aimed at malign its principal.
The organisation said some defeated political forces are ready to share some fake video clips on internet to tarnish the image of the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in the July 16 governorship elections.
A statement made available in Osogbo by the group also threatened to take legal action against those spreading fake news about Adeleke.
The group said there was no time that Adeleke was involved in such dance, describing the clip as a failed attempt by some elements to paint him in a bad light.
The statement read, “We, therefore, alert the general public of a grand plot by defeated political forces to malign the flag bearer of the PDP in Osun forthcoming governorship election. We are in possession of details of plans to share fake videos and clips purportedly of Senator Adeleke. We urge the public to ignore this false propaganda designed to undermine our principal.
“Those behind the plot are scared of the increasing popularity of Senator Adeleke. They conducted pre-election surveys that confirmed that Adeleke is unstoppable in July, hence the resort to blackmail and malicious disinformation and maligning activities.”
