The Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi has denied obstructing or manipulating investigation into the murder of Olatoye Temitope popularly called Sugar, who represented Lagelu/Akinyele federal constituency in the House of Representatives.
DAILY POST recalls that the late lawmaker’s elder brother, Olajide Olatoye, had on Thursdayaccused Governor Ajimobi and the Oyo State Assembly of facilitating the release of the suspected killers.
In a statement by Mr. Bolaji Tunji, his Special Adviser on Communication and Strategy, Ajimobi said his government was known for never interfering with the course of justice.
According to him, the case was already before the police. He added that investigators were already doing their job and have not contacted him on any challenges.
‘’The governor has already directed the security agencies to fish out the culprits, and they are on the case.
“If the police are facing any challenge in their investigation, they are supposed to get across to the governor, and tell him their suggestions. The governor will now take it up from there.
“I think they should go back to the police to find out how far they have gone in the matter instead of saying the governor wants to facilitate the release of the suspects. So, people should always get their facts right.
“The governor will never be a party to a situation whereby an investigation being done by a statutory body will be compromised. The governor will never do anything that is against the law.
