Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, Minister of Interior, on Monday, said the death of Senator Dhikrulahi Adebayo Osinowo was shocking and indescribable.
Erstwhile governor of Osun State, while describing the late Senator Osinowo Vivacious, didactic, ebullient, engaging and witty, added he, “lived the conviction of his beliefs and courted political engagements with relish. He never shied away from polemics and debate. He told whoever cared to listen that he was an unapologetic Tinubu man.
“We met soon after his release from a prolonged detention with the winner of June 12, 1993, presidential election, Chief Moshood Abiola, an experience that, according to him, was close to death. Bayo never finished regaling us with snippets of his gulag experience that could best be described as harrowing and life threatening, yet he survived.

“He was elected into the Lagos State House of Assembly, representing Kosofe1, State Constituency. He served in that capacity for 12 years before his election into the National Assembly. He was a solid pillar of the house, mobilizing, coordinating and enforcing party policies, objectives and decisions.
“Senator Osinowo was a core loyalist to our cause and tendency in all spheres and climes and a bold and courageous defender of the Mandate Group.
“I can never fully requite the debt of service, favour and commitment I owe Senator Osinowo. He gave me an overwhelming support for the Osun Governorship project.”
“As a matter of fact, he took it personal. He engaged and was responsible for the 12-man bodyguards that provided water-tight security for me from 2004 to 2010. He mobilized resources from far and wide for the elections and legal tussles.”
