Ondo CP Withdraws Deputy Gov’s Police Escort – Aide


- Advertisment -

Ondo deputy governor, Agboola Ajayi

The Ondo State Deputy Governor, Mr Agboola Ajayi, has cried out to the Inspector-General of police accusing the Ondo state Police Commissioner, Mr Bolaji Salami of withdrawing his police escort.

Recall that the deputy governor recently decamped to the Peoples Democratic Party from the All Progressives Congress.

The CP had on Saturday blocked the deputy governor on his way out of the government house with his official vehicle.

In a statement issued on Wednesday by his Chief Press Secretary,  Mr Tope Okeowo, the deputy governor said the withdrawal of the escort had been putting his life, that of his family and staff in danger.

He said, “We are not oblivious of their surreptitious move to undermine the security of the deputy governor and strip him of his security apparatus to make him venerable in order to carry out their evil agenda.

“President  Buhari,  the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, and the Director-General of  Department of State Services, Yusuf Bichi should be aware of this latest ugly development in Ondo State.

“Should anything happen to the Deputy Governor, his family and staff, the Commissioner of Police in Ondo State should be held responsible.”

In a reaction, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Tee-Leo Ikoro, denied the allegation, saying there was no such plan from the CP.

“That should be a rumour, the CP cannot withdraw the escort of the deputy governor, the man is still the deputy governor of this state and he has the right to have his escorts. His escorts are there intact. So there is nothing like that.”
