● We Condemn Attempt to Shift Blame on DSS, Police
Osun State government has accused the former former administration of deceit in accounting for the looted property in the deputy governor’s residence.
There were earlier reports that the deputy governor’s residence was looted before the exit of the former administration.
While the government of Ademola Adeleke alleged that officials in the past Government looted the property, spokesperson to former governor Gboyega Oyetola, Ismail Omipidan, absolved the past administration of the looting.
Reacting, Chief Press Secretary to governor Adeleke, Mallam Olawale Rasheed,said Oyetola’s team is confused.
The statement reads: “Few days after Mr Ismail Omipidan’s boss, Funke Egbemode admitted that looting took place under Oyetola administration, it is sad that attempts are being made to shift blame on the Department of State Security Service and the police service.
“Three high ranking officials of past administration have spoken on the looting and it was clear that two of them, Sunday Akere and Mrs Egbemode admitted to the looting because they are fed up with propaganda and lying to the public. The third one in his usual deceitful manner almost a week after came up with cock and bull story, maligning the DSS and the Police.
“The latest propaganda attempt is an after thought of a robber caught in the act by people of Osun people, the real owners of the assets. The vidéo evidence is everywhere and history was recorded against a team that proved in every sense to be anti-people.
“It is utterly wicked on the part of Omipidan to attempt to shift the looting on innocent security agencies whom he claimed Oyetola handed over the assets that were looted bare.
“It was even an aberratiion in democratic clime that an outgoing government would claim to hand over to security agencies instead of the incoming administration. Omipidan after thought denial is shameful to say the least.”
