Sugar’s brother accuses Ajimobi of facilitating killers’ release

Temitope Olatoye Sugar Oyo lawmaker shot dead

Olajide Olatoye, elder brother of late Olatoye Temitope also known as Sugar, has alleged that Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, was facilitating the release of his brother’s killers.

Olatoye represented Lagelu/Akinyele federal constituency in the House of Representatives.

He was killed by unknown gunmen during the March 9 governorship and house of assembly elections at Lalupon area of Lagelu LGA.

Olajide made the accusation on Thursday during Sugar’s lying-in-state held at the House of Chiefs, Agodi, Ibadan.

“Governor Abiola Ajimobi should desist from facilitating the release of the killers of my brother, let justice prevail.

“Oyo State government should remove hand in the investigation of the incident and allow the perpetrators of the evil act face the wrath of the law. Being a serving Oyo State House of Assembly member does not mean that you are untouchable,” he said.

Sugar’s younger brother, who spoke for the family, lamented that his brother’s killers had not been brought to book.

Speaker of the House of Assembly, Olagunju Ojo said: “In life, it is not how far, but how well, on behalf of the 8th Assembly, we wish you eternal life and journey mercy.”
