Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu Reacts To Deputy, Police Saga


Governor of Ondo State, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has reacted to allegations that he was responsible for the action taken by the Police against his Deputy, Hon Agboola Ajayi, on Saturday night.

The Ondo State Deputy Governor was held back at the Government House as Ondo Police Commissioner, Bolaji Salami, insisted that he would not leave with his official vehicles.

A Video trending on the Social Media showed the State Police Commissioner stopping Hon Ajayi from leaving the premises of the Government house on Saturday night.

A statement by Akeredolu’s Chief Press Secretary, Segun Ajiboye, described the report as a complete falsehood intended to play victim by the principal actors involved.

Akeredolu said it is a concorted lie meant to discredit him that he directed the Police Commissioner to restrain the Deputy Governor from leaving the Government House.

He explained it was a time-tested code in government’s business for officials to take inventory of offices and quarters before and after an official is moving in or out of offices or quarters.

Akeredolu maintained that it became worrisome and suspicious when Aides of the Deputy Governor insisted on leaving the premises with items wrapped as late as 11 pm.
The Governor said that the CP’s intervention is most desirable to restore law and order.

“Governor Akeredolu reiterates his commitment to the rights of all, including the Deputy Governor Governor.

“But he has a duty to be firm and dispassionate in exercising the roles assigned to him,” he said.
