The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State, Ladi Adebutu, on Wednesday stormed the headquarters of the state police command over allegations of vote buying and money laundering leveled against him by the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Adebutu arrived at Eleweran, the command’s headquarters at 11.10 am accompanied by chieftains of the party, including a former governorship aspirant, Segun Sowunmi, and went straight into the office of the Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alamutu.

The ruling APC had filed a petition against Adebutu and the PDP, accusing them of vote buying and money laundering during the Saturday, March 18 governorship election in the state.

Our correspondent gathered that Adebutu’s visit was in response to the police invitation on the APC’s petition.

After about 24 minutes meeting with the CP, Adebutu went to the office of the deputy commissioner of police in charge of the Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (CID) and spent about 30 minutes.

Speaking with journalists shortly after his visit, Adebutu explained that he was at the command’s headquarters to clear the air on the petition written by the APC.

He described the allegations as frivolous and untrue, adding that he visited the police on his own volition.

Adebutu said “Some funny innuendos have been going around and I thought maybe we will clear the air, so I came here on my free volition to clear any frivolous petition written by the APC and their ilk. I have come and I’m happy that this institution has done well, they have listened, they have taken records and I’m sure that this is the way to a better Nigeria.”
