Olasheu Adebayo, an aide to the former governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has denied involvement in a thurgery allegation raised by a blogger identified as Timothy Odedina.
PLATFORM TIMES reports that Odedina in a post on a blog titled, Police invite amosun aide over assault on journalist accused the former governor’s aide to have sent thugs to attack hin.
Odedina in the post alleged the Olasheu sent thugs to him because he spoke against the activities of the Amosun administration.
However, Olasheu as he is fondly called in a refutal he personally signed distance himself from the alleged attack.
He described the report as fake and untrue, insisting that he never had an argument with Odedina as potray in the report.
According to him, in what appears like a comedy or a very big joke of the year, I read a blog making rounds lately tagged:
‘Pissing contest’ . Police invite amosun aide over assault on journalist
He added, “In the very laughable writeup, Senator Ibikunle Amosun CON,FCA name was mentioned. The blogger even insinuated that the former governor orchestrated an attack through my humble self on one Timothy Odedina.
“This clearly is an act of irresponsibly on the part of the so called journalist.
Allegation of arguments between myself and the blogger on a WhatsApp platform; Odeda Gbayi never existed.
“I only defended the former administration’s actions on that platform. I submitted on the platform that the former governor did not abandon any road project as contractors were still working on all the sites months after Amosun had left government and feelers indicated that the contractors were stopped by the present government.
“Beyond the above, no further discussion ensued. I have nothing to do with his current issue with another person as I am far away from Abeokuta busy with my business. My Oga (Senator Amosun) Is a peace loving man who will never ask that anyone be molested talk less of being attacked.
“I have the feeling that this blogger; Timothy Odedina is looking for some attention and or recognition perhaps for any patronage.
“I have never and will never be involved in any untoward behaviour and will not condone such acts whatever the circumstance.
“I therefore, dissociate myself with any violence as alleged in the blog making rounds.
Finally, the Police have not invited me for any reason what soever.”
