Agboola, aides didn’t loot government properties, says O/C Govt House Chalet
Nigerian Concord Newspaper
The Officer in Charge of the Ondo state Government House Chalet, Mr. J.I. Fagbayigbo, has denied allegations against the state deputy governor, Hon. Agboola Ajayi, that he and his aides looted government’s properties last Saturday.
According to Mr. Fagbayigbo in a handwritten memo which was seen by Nigerian Concord, it was just the personal belongings of the deputy governor that were removed by his aides on Saturday contrary to reports by Governor Akeredolu’s media handlers.
Fagbayigbo wrote: “I, Mr. Fagbayibgo J. I. O/C Chalet government house Ground was on ground when all the personal belongings of the Deputy Governor was (sic) taken and none of the government property were (sic) taken”
Recall that there was a physical assault on the deputy governor at the gate of the government house at Alagbaka by Commissioner of Police in Ondo state, Mr. Bolaji Salami, when Agboola led his aides to relocate his personal properties prior to yesterday’s defection to PDP at his Kiribo Ward.
In a statement after Saturday’s incident, the governor of Ondo state, Rotimi Akeredolu, through his spokespersons issued several press statements, saying that Agboola and his aides truly looted properties belonging to the state government.
But reports have it that the harassment on Agboola by the police boss was an order from Governor Akeredolu to stop the deputy governor from attending his defection which took place in his home town yesterday.
