Money laundering: Gov. Ajimobi claims it has slammed N1bn suit on media outfit

by Isi Esene

The Oyo State governor has a slammed a N1bn on the management of Independent Communications Network Limited over allegations of money laundering leveled against Florence Ajimobi, the first lady of the state.

This was disclosed to the media by the special adviser to the governor on media, Festus Adedayo.

According to the release, the government of Oyo State had the responsibility to ensure that the media does not become an instrument in the hands of blackmailers for such acts.

“We want to state unequivocally that this report is not only wicked, it is the figment of the imagination of the writers.

“Mrs. Ajimobi was never arrested for any offence whatsoever. Even though our investigations have shown that this is the work of some arrowheads of the opposition, it was done in such an amateurish way that beats the imagination of any responsible reader,” the release said.

He said the government saw it necessary to drag the publishers of the story before a competent court to explain the motive behind the report.

The release pointed accusing fingers at political opponents of the governor  who engage in “dirty politicking” for the propagation of their falsehood claiming the courts would be able to compel those behind the report to provide details of the veracity or otherwise of their claims on the governor’s wife.

Reports say the governor’s wife was allegedly arrested by the London Met police for laundering the sum of N500m.
