Ondo CP, Ajayi disagree on alleged police escort’s withdrawal

The Ondo State Deputy Governor, Mr Agboola Ajayi, has raised the alarm that the state Police Commissioner, Mr Bolaji Salami, has ordered the withdrawal of his police escorts in order to expose him to danger .

In a statement issued on Wednesday by his Chief Press Secretary,  Mr Tope Okeowo, the deputy governor said the withdrawal of the escorts had put his life and those of his family and staff members 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 the Directorate of State Services, Yusuf Bichi, should be aware of this latest ugly development in Ondo State”

But the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Tee-Leo Ikoro, denied the allegation.

He said, “That should be a rumour; the CP cannot withdraw the escorts 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.”
