By: Oluwatosin Adesola

The Senior Special Assistant to the Ondo state governor on special duty, Dr Doyin Odebowale has denied a report that he slapped a Environmental security guard, Mrs Adeola Egbebi who was on duty at Oja Oba market in Akure.

SUNSHINETRUTH learnt that the worker who is heavily pregnant, was reported assaulted by Odebowole for not standing up to greet him like her other environmental workers.

An eyewitness who is a market woman said, “the woman has been working since resuming duty and it was time for the environmental security guards to leave the Erekesan market when the governor’s SSA Odebowale arrived the place with his men and started harassing the workers but Mrs Egbebi was unable to stand up to greet him immediately which infuriated the SSA and gave the woman hot slap and slumped.

But In his facebook post, Odebowale said, “I beg, ignore the propagandists. High Priest can NEVER beat a woman, let alone a pregnant one. I love women. I respect them.

“Let them continue to entertain themselves. I can’t be deterred. I will clear the roads and the cities. I just demolished some shanties in Ore. I hope to continue,” Odebowale said.
