The late Hon. Olatoye Temitope’s elder brother, Olajide Olatoye, has accused Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi of facilitating the release of his killers.
During the lying- in- state for the late federal lawmaker, held at the House of Chiefs, Agodi, Ibadan, Olajide said information reaching him indicated that Ajimobi, in conjunction with some members of the Oyo State House of Assembly, were facilitating the release of some suspects arrested in connection with the unfortunate assassination incident.
Olatoye said, “Governor Abiola Ajimobi should desist from facilitating the release of the killers of my brother, let justice prevail.
“Oyo State government should remove hand in the investigation of the incident and allow the perpetrators of the evil act to face the wrath of the law. Being a serving Oyo State House of Assembly member does not mean that you are untouchable.”
Speaking on behalf of the Olatoye family, the younger brother to the deceased, Dotun Olatoye, lamented that the killers were yet to be nabbed despite all the support the family had been receiving from the federal and state government.
He pointed out that there was a need to value human life because human life is sacred, wondering how a serving federal lawmaker will be killed without proper investigation and arrest of the perpetrators.
“Sugar was a great icon and the Generalissimo of the masses, he has paid all his tributes while on earth, he was a man of peace, even when he lost an election, he remained calm,” he stated.
Speaker of the House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Olagunju Ojo said the death of the late lawmaker showed that Oyo State has lost an illustrious son that will not be forgotten.
Olagunju reiterated that the deceased was monumental and unique while alive, noting that no one ever expected him to die like that.
