THE Commissioner of Police in Ondo State, Bolaji Salami has been asked to immediately restore the security details of the state’s Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi.
Monday’s directive follows a controversy between Deputy Governor and Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu over Ajayi’s defection to the PDP, ahead of the October 2020 governorship election in the state.
Security details attached to the Deputy Governor were allegedly withdrawn on the orders of the Commissioner of Police last week.
The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu gave the order on via a memo addressed to the Police Commissioner through the Deputy Inspector General of Police, Operations, Force Headquarters Abuja.
Meanwhile, the Public Relations Officer of Ondo State Police Command has insisted that the state’s Commissioner of Police did not at any time withdraw the security details of the Deputy Governor as alleged by Media Adviser to the Deputy Governor, Allen Sowore.
The Public Relations Officer of Ondo State Police Command claimed that the deputy Governor himself requested specific men and they have since been sent to him.
