How My Deputy disengaged his Security details by himself —Akeredolu, as IGP acts

By: Ade Adeleke

Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo state has dismissed insinuation that security details of his Deputy Governor, Hon Agboola Ajayi.

This is coming as the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu has ordered the Commissioner of Police in Ondo State, Bolaji Salami, to restore the security details of the state’s deputy governor, Hon. Agboola Ajayi, with immediate effect.

However, a press statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Segun Ajiboye, says “Another Lie From A Sinker: we deliberately allowed the additional lies in respect of the “reinstated security of Agboola Ajayi, to fly. Let’s know better, who this character is.

“He applied for six Policemen, instead of the statutory eight for a deputy Governor on the 10th of June and the IGP approved via Letter No: CB0900/DOPS/ FHQ/ABJ/VOL/60/263 dated same 10th June 2020.

“It goes to show that none of his security was withdrawn as he made the innocent public to believe. He applied for the six, got approval and sent those he doesn’t “trust” back to the Government House Security structure, then went ahead to raise alarm.

Akeredolu said, “He (Agboola) disengaged his ADC, Dele, another Sgt Kasali by himself and cried foul. A sinking man indeed. All the security attached to his official residence have remained intact, none was removed or withdrawn.

“The questions are: when did he apply? When was the alarm raised? Was it approval of his letter that was sent or an order to reinstate his allegedly withdrawn security?”
