On Tuesday morning, the Osun State capital, Osogbo, witnessed heavy police presence in major junctions and roundabouts.
The areas of the town where the police were stationed include Olaiya junction, Oke-Fia and LAMECO roundabouts, Old Garage/Freedom Park, Ayetoro roundabout, Osun State High Court premises, among others.
The heavy police presence is believed to be linked to the impending judgment of the Supreme Court, scheduled for Tuesday in Abuja.
The apex court had fixed today, Tuesday, and is expected to deliver judgment on the matter of the Osun 2022 gubernatorial election after hearing from Adegboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and Governor Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
In the initial election, Ademola Adeleke emerged victorious, but the Osun gubernatorial election tribunal later overturned the result.
The appellate court, however, reversed the tribunal’s decision and declared Adeleke the duly elected Governor of Osun State.
