Zenith Labour Party ZLP National Assembly Candidate for Ibadan North West/South West Federal constituency Otunba Rotimi Ajanaku has debunked the rumours spreading round that he was arrested and detained by police at State CID, Iyaganku, Ibadan
He alleged the current House of Reps Member Hon. Saheed Fijabi as the brain behind the unfounded rumour
But Hon Fijabi when contacted debunked the insinuation that he is behind the rumour about Ajanaku and one of his boy’ s arrest.
Mr Adewale Adenrele Head of Media Team to hon. Ajanaku in a press statement issued in Ibadan described the arrest rumour as blatant lies adding that the allegation is not only unfounded, but a blatant lie that ridicules the exalted office he is occupying.
“Ordinarily, we would have ignored this antic capable of distracting our team, but the unsuspecting members of the public, especially Ajanaku’s fans deserve to know the truth of the matter.”
Adewale explained that on Saturday night, Ajanaku’s team had gone to paste posters at Sabo area of Adamasingba when Fijabi attacked them. Subsequently, he invited the men of ‘Operation Burst’ a joint security patrol team of military, police and civil defence to arrest Ajanaku’s men. One of them who drove the bus was detained at State Police Command, Eleyele. Obviously, Fijabi was able to effect this arrest because of his position as a federal lawmaker.”
“However, we found it amusing when Fijabi lied that Otunba Rotimi Ajanaku fled the scene when the security operatives came. Ajanaku has never for once followed his men to paste posters as he believes in their competence.”
Fijabi while reacting said , He did not use his influence as a lawmaker to order their arrest but they were arrested because incriminating objects and weapon were found in their campaign.
” Why was i not arrested if i was the one that confronted them with my supporters, the Operation burst commandant himself arrested them with those items, go to iyaganku to see the branded bus already impounded.”
He however discloses that he has filed a case against Otunba Ajanaku and his team at the court of law
