Has Gani Adams denied assassination claims?

According to The Punch, Gani Adams neither denied nor confirmed the claim when contacted but said, "No comment on that. No comment."

Ayinde's lawyer, Adeyinka Olumide-Fusika (SAN), in a pre-action letter dated March 20, 2024, asked the Aare Ona Kakanfo to withdraw the allegation without the need from his client's side to "press you further on the subject."

Olumide-Fusika maintained that there was a need for the pre-action letter because of what was contained in the press statement issued by Sunday Igboho, which is titled: "I did not take part in killing Chief Bola Ige."

He went further to describe the statement of the allegation of Adams as a move to injure his client's character. He demanded that Aare Ona Kakanfo retract the statement immediately.
