Speaking in the Yoruba language in the interview Auxilliary granted to personnel, Ajibola Akinyefa, he said:

“If he (Famojuro) is the governor or Seyi Makinde is, we will know. It is just a matter of time. Everybody will face the consequences of their actions. The people he chose to manage the park are cheating themselves."

When he was queried if he was removed because of his hooliganism, Auxiliary asked about the number of people who reported him to the police that he beat them.

He added that Seye would soon leave Ibadan for his homeland in Ijesha, alleging that he was not from the state.

Recall that Auxilliary was arrested by the immediate past administration of the Late Abiola Ajimobi around the third week of May 2014.
