A member of the House of Representatives, representing Ibadan North East/Ibadan South East in Oyo State, Hon. Adedapo Lam Adesina has called on the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris to provide necessary security cover for him in view of an alleged assassination attempt on him by Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State and his wife, Florence.
Adesina in a petition addressed to the IG titled “Petition Against Senator Abiola Ajimobi, the Executive Governor of Oyo State and his wife, Mrs. Florence Ajimobi for threat of life and planned assassination on my life and other honourable colleagues of mine”, declared that he has been hiding himself from hired assassins sent to terminate his life by the Governor of the state, Abiola Ajimobi.
The lawmaker who is one of the sons of former Governor of the state, late Alhaji Lamidi Adesina said “as I write this petition, my life is under serious threat and I have been hiding myself from the hired assassins sent after me by the Executive Governor of Oyo State.”
Adesina while urging the Police boss to give his petition the utmost attention it deserved, however, alleged that the major plan of the governor was to take him out of circulation.
He said “At the moment, there is a palpable fear and grave yard peace in Oyo State, I am aware that the Governor had activated some members of the NURTW to assassinate me and they also have an alternative plan to charge me and others for frame up charges.
“The major plan is to take me out of circulation by all means either by assassination or frame up.”
Adesina then urged the IG to treat the petition with deserved attention.
He said “Dear Inspector General of Police, it is my fervent hope that you will give this petition the utmost attention it needed”.
But, Ajimobi while reacting declared that the lawmaker was linking threat to his life to him in order to gain cheap popularity.
