Ondo CP Withdraws Deputy Gov’s Police Escort

Ondo CP Withdraws Deputy Gov's Police Escort


Ondo deputy governor, Agboola Ajayi


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


Recall that the deputy governor not too long ago decamped to the Peoples Democratic Get together from the All Progressives Congress.


The CP had on Saturday blocked the deputy governor on his manner out of the federal government home together with his official car.


In an announcement issued on Wednesday by his Chief Press Secretary,  Mr Tope Okeowo, the deputy governor stated the withdrawal of the escort had been placing his life, that of his household and workers in peril.


He stated, “We’re not oblivious of their surreptitious transfer to undermine the safety of the deputy governor and strip him of his safety equipment to make him venerable with a view to perform their evil agenda.

“President  Buhari,  the Inspector Normal of Police, Mohammed Adamu, and the Director-Normal of  Division of State Providers, Yusuf Bichi ought to pay attention to this newest ugly growth in Ondo State.

“Ought to something occur to the Deputy Governor, his household and workers, the Commissioner of Police in Ondo State must be held accountable.”

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


“That must be a hearsay, the CP can not withdraw the escort of the deputy governor, the person continues to be the deputy governor of this state and he has the best to have his escorts. His escorts are there intact. So there may be nothing like that.”
