Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi facilitated the release of killers of Hon Olatoye Temitope a.k.a Sugar, who represented Lagelu/Akinyele federal constituency in the House of Representatives, his elder brother, Mr. Olajide Olatoye, has alleged.
Olajide made the accusation on Thursday during the lying- in- state for the slain federal lawmaker held at the House of Chiefs, Agodi, Ibadan.
He noted that information reaching him indicated Ajimobi, in conjunction with some members of the Oyo State House of Assembly, were facilitating release of some suspects arrested in connection with the unfortunate assassination incident.
“Governor Abiola Ajimobi should desist from facilitating the release of the killers of my brother, let justice prevail.
“Oyo State government should remove hand in the investigation of the incident and allow the perpetrators of the evil act face the wrath of the law. Being a serving Oyo State House of Assembly member does not mean that you are untouchable,” he said.
Speaking on behalf of the Olatoye’s family, the younger brother to the deceased, Mr. Dotun Olatoye, lamented the killers were yet to be nabbed despite all the support the family had been receiving from the federal and state government.
He pointed out that there was need to value human life because human life is sacred, wondering how a serving federal lawmaker will be killed without proper investigation and arrest of the perpetrators.
