The Senior Special Assistant to the Ondo state Governor on Special duty & strategy, Dr Doyin Odebowale has taken to his facebook page to put up defence against an allegation that he assaulted a pregnant worker, Adeola Egbedi, who an environmental security guard with the Ondo state waste management board.

Odebowale was alleged to have slapped Adeola on duty at Oja Oba Akure on thursday and rushed to a private hospital for medicare.

Egbebi, who narrated her ordeal to BBC Yoruba on Friday morning confirmed the incident took place at the Oja Oba market in Akure, the state capital.

However SUNSHINETRUTH gathered that, Odebowale popularly known as “High Priest”, denied slapping or using traditional ring to slap the woman.

He posted on his facebook page different points in the last few days, “As High Priest use “traditional ring” hit a “heavily pregnant woman”, na hospital dem carry am go. No be shrine! Awon Were (mad people)!

“My job is to make thieves unhappy. Ondo State realised over N400m on the sales of Okada tickets in 2020, despite Covid. N54.5m in Jan, N51m in Feb and N71m in March, 2021. It used to be N400,000 monthly in all the 18 LGs in the State. I will intensify their unhappiness. Evil Servants!

“The ODIRS, through my office, has realised N66m from the sale of tickets to taxis and buses in Akure alone in less than two months. Nobody was remitting to the State any money before now. They accuse “an Ijebu man” of depriving them the opportunity to punish their own people. Awon Omo Ale (bastards)!

“All of them want to become Agbero while they inflict hardship on the people. They want to sell Govt revenue tickets so as to be able to extort. I have resisted all glorified miscreants.

“I thank my team for clearing Oja Oba and Arakale in Akure this morning (Friday morning). It must continue. I assure the “Army of Progress” that we will not be deterred.

“We will confront criminals headlong. All corrupt elements should expect us.

Some of his friends on facebook page solidarised with his.

One of them, Oloyede Oyebanjo posted that, “This is the way to go in Lagos and Oyo states, get all those criminals masquerading as union off our space and ensure government gets the revenue- the next challenge will then be to ensure government does the right thing with the revenue. Governors SanwoOlu and Makinde should take copious notes. Good job Sir.”

Olabimpe Akinnusi… “Those “evil servants” must be flushed out of the system.. Please help “REVIVE” Ondo State. That State will be great again if we have people like you there.”
