Ondo State Government has asked the Police to prevail on the former deputy governor of the state, Agboola Ajayi, to return government vehicles in his possession.

Ajayi served in the first tenure expired with the first tenure of Governor Akeredolu.

Odebowale noted that all entreaties to the former deputy Governor to return the vehicles, for the use of the incumbent deputy Governor were  rebuffed by Ajayi.

The letter reads:”Our Office has the firm directive of the Governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi  Akeredolu, SAN, to recover all government properties still in the possession of former political office holders in the State, especially those who served in the immediate past Administration.

“Our record confirms that Mr Agboola Ajayi, the immediate past Deputy Governor of Ondo State, is still holding on to four vehicles owned by the Government.

“All entreaties to him to return these vehicles, for the use of the incumbent occupier of the office, have been rebuffed. Please, Sir, find attached copies of the letters dated 16th February, 2021 and 1stMarch, 2021 respectively.

“We lodge this complaint believing that you will use your good offices to look into this brazen act of conversion, and this is being charitable.

“The vehicles in Mr Ajayi’s possession, unlawfully, are; Land Cruiser SUV, New Toyota Hilux, New Toyota Hilux and Toyota Hilux.”
