Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi has rubbished accusation by Olajide Olatoye, elder brother of late lawmaker Olatoye Temitope a.k.a. sugar, that he is facilitating the release of the lawmaker’s killers.
Concise News reports that Olatoye, on Thursday, accused Ajimobi and the Oyo State Assembly of facilitating the release of the suspected killers.
However, Ajimobi, through his Special Adviser on Communication and Strategy, Bolaji Tunji, said the case was already before the police.
“If a citizen of the state dies, I am not sure the governor will be the one that will say people responsible for it should not be punished,” he said.
“So, I think they should go and get their information right. The governor is not privy to that kind of information and he will not support sweeping such a case under the carpet.
“So, if people are saying the governor is trying to facilitate the release of the principal suspect and others, it is not true.
“The governor said when the man died that those who perpetrated the act would be brought to justice. And he has never said anything contrary to what he said when the man died, and that still stands.
“What the family should do now is to tell the police to do their job the way it should be done.”
