Bolaji Salami, the commissioner of police in Ondo state, has prevented Agboola Ajayi, the deputy governor, from leaving the government house with official vehicles.
According to reports, the deputy governor is trying to leave the government house with official vehicles and properties in preparation for his expected defection to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In a trending video, the CP was heard to have said: “We are not saying you should not go out. Since you are defecting, even your letter was brought to me in my office this evening that you are doing it (decamping) on Monday, June 22.
“What government is saying is that you cannot go out with official vehicles. This is politics, I am not saying it is right. This is Government House. The Governor is the one talking, give me few minutes, let me talk to my boss.”
In reaction, the deputy governor replied: “Are you a member of the PDP or APC? It is you stopping me now. What is your concern about my leaving from one place to another? Do you know how many hours I have spent here? I personally paid for these vehicles. You should not have put yourself in mess.
“I have tried all constitutional and acceptable means to prevent this crisis. You are being used by the governor to deprive me of my constitutional right. I am highly disappointed that a policeman of your calibre can be used like this.
“Let me tell you, you cannot repeat what happened in this state in 1983 because Ondo State people will resist you and your and your emperor with everything.”
