Again, Ondo Amotekun ‘Deports’ 137 Northerners From State


The Ondo State Security Network Agency, codenamed Amotekun has again evicted 137 northerners from the state forest reserve.

Those evicted were occupying the Elegbeka forest reserve along Ifon-Owo Road

Governor Rotimi Akeredolu had in February ordered herdsmen to vacate the state’s forest reserves within seven days.

Apart from ejecting the herdsmen, the governor also banned underage grazing, night grazing, and movement of cattle within the cities and highways.

Speaking with journalists in Akure, the state commander of Amotekun, Chief Adetunji Adeleye described herdsmen’s continued occupation of the forest reserves as a security threat to the state.

Adeleye said all the illegal forest occupants would be escorted out of the state to wherever they came from.

He said, “We got an Intelligence report that very many people bombarded (forests at) Elegbeka–Ifon area in the state.

“We moved in and questioned the majority of them and they said they were from the northern part of the country. We asked for their mission, they were not able to give us a clear-cut (explanation) of what they were here for.

“We brought some of them (to Akure) and their sponsors here to the headquarters (of Amotekun) for proper investigation. We profiled them and found out that they were conniving with some persons in Ose to be given space for settlement in the government’s forest reserve which makes them illegal occupants in the forest reserve.”

The chairman said, “We are sending them back to where they claimed they came from.”

This comes a few days after the government evacuated 42 suspected invaders, who were arrested by Amotekun at Okitipupa, the headquarters of Okitipupa Local Government Area of the state.

The suspected invaders who hailed from Kano and Jigawa states claimed that they were invited to the state by an agent who will engage them as security guards to monitor and guide pipelines in the state.

"The APC thugs came and began harassing the Chairman because the voting took place directly in front of his house.

"They felt they were not going to win there because of the ADC. In fact, they also assaulted his daughter and cut him with axe on his right arm," the source said.

He explained that the case was immediately reported at Igbara Oke Police Station before the victims were rushed to the hospital for treatment.

A police officer, who was also at the scene, confirmed the attack, noting that some arrests had been made.

We'll Defeat APC, PDP During Governorship Election, Opposition Parties In Ondo Say


Ahead of the Ondo State governorship election, leaders of opposition parties in the state have said that they would wrestle power from the All Progressives Congress.

The Independent National Electoral Commission had fixed October 10, 2020 for the state’s governorship election.

No fewer than 17 political parties have indicated interest to participate in the exercise where the APC and Peoples Democratic Party are viewed as the ‘frontliners’.

Biyi Poroye, Chairman of Mega Party of Nigeria, told SaharaReporters that some of the opposition parties were already coming together under 'Emerging Political Platform' to take back power from the APC during the poll.

He however, noted that there were plans to also collapse the platform into any of the parties in the state with good ideology after governorship primaries of parties.

On his part, Alex Adeniyi, Chairman of the African Action Congress in Ondo State, rejected the view that only the APC and the PDP were the party to beat in the governorship election.

Adeniyi said that the AAC would participate actively in the exercise, adding that the party has continued to be the third force with its following and would wrestle power from the APC in the state.

He said, "As a political party with great ideology, we are capitalising on the failures of the two most corrupt political parties (both APC and PDP) who had held sway in the state since the return of democracy in 1999.

"We intend to tell the residents of the state that we can always do away with these two known parties because they have all failed us and we don't need them anymore.

"We need a political party with ideology that would bring our dead industries back to life and where education would remain our best legacy and security of lives and properties will matter in governance.

"Since AAC is here, we are ready for the governorship poll and it is not going to be about APC and PDP alone as people are tired of the main parties because it’s now like a game of changing the cover of the same old bottle."

Chairman of Zenith Labour Party, Joseph Akinlaja, while speaking on the issue, said the party had picked its candidate to show readiness for the governorship election.

He explained that the ZLP do not view the APC and PDP as the main contenders in the election, noting that the outcome of the election would shock the two political parties.

In his own reaction, Mr Oladele Olugbemi Ogunbameru, Acting Chairman of Social Democratic Party, said the party was not interested in discussing other political parties participating in the election.

He noted that the SDP was being strategic ahead of the election as more aspirants were reaching out to contest on its platform.

Other political parties expected to field candidates in the election include Action Alliance, African Democratic Congress, Young Progressives Party, Labour Party, among others.

INEC confirms 17 political parties for Ondo guber poll


The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has confirmed that 17 out of the 18 registered political parties will be contesting the October 10, 2020 Ondo state governorship election.


Arising from its regular weekly meeting at its national headquarters in Abuja on Thursday, the Commission approved indirect mode of primaries for the All Progressives Congress (APC), the oppositon, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and other political parties.

In a statement signed by the National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, the Commission equally urged the 14 political parties that nominated candidates for the Edo election to comply with the rules and regulations guiding canvassing for votes.

“A total of 17 of the 18 registered political parties notified the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of their intention to conduct party primaries for the Ondo Governorship election fixed for 10th October 2020. Only the Boot Party did not give any notification of its intention to conduct primaries for the Ondo Governorship election. This is in compliance with section 85 (1) of the Electoral Act, which makes it mandatory for registered political parties to give the Commission at least 21 days’ notice of any Congress or meeting convened for the purpose of nominating candidates for any of the elective offices specified in the Act.

“Details of the political parties and their calendar of Congresses/Primaries (including dates and modes of primaries) have been published on the Commission’s website and social media platforms.

“By Section 87 (2) of the Electoral Act, political parties have the exclusive discretion to determine the procedure for the nomination of candidates which shall be by Direct or Indirect primaries and all the 17 political parties notified the Commission of their intention to conduct Indirect primaries for the nomination of their candidates.

“Political parties are reminded that they are required to submit a comprehensive list of all the delegates eligible to participate in the primaries at least seven days before the scheduled date. The INEC portal for uploading nomination forms will open on July 21 and close on at 6pm on July 28, 2020. We urge political parties not to wait till the last day before submitting the names of their nominated candidates as


“Political parties must observe all the health protocols and guidelines made available to them by the Commission, the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the State Government. They must also enforce the policy of “No Mask, No Voting” in their primaries,” the Commission warned.

On Edo governorship election, the Commission noted: “14 political parties conducted primaries and nominated their candidates for the Edo governorship election holding on Saturday September 19, 2020. Going by the Timetable and Schedule of Activities for the election, campaign by political parties in public commenced on June 21, 2020 and ends on September 17, 2010 i.e. 24 hours before polling day as enshrined in Section 99 (1) of the Electoral Act 2010 (as emended).

“Political parties are hereby reminded that in canvassing for votes, they must comply with the Commission’s policy on Conducting Elections in the Context of the COVID-19 Pandemic as well as the Regulations and Guidelines governing same. They must also comply with the guidelines issued by health authorities.

“At the same time, parties are enjoined to conduct issue-based campaigns in accordance with the Regulations and Guidelines issued by the Commission. They should appeal to their supporters to shun inflammatory rhetoric and disruptive behaviour capable of breaching the peace.

“The election is an opportunity for the people of Edo State to choose among the 14 candidates in the contest. The Commission is concerned that as campaigns begin, campaign councils rather than candidates and party manifestoes are taking centre stage. The election should be a contest of ideas and programmes for the people of Edo to make informed decisions for the development of their State,” It noted.

Giving update on the Nasarawa Central State Constituency bye-election, the Commission revealed that; “Two political parties, the APC and the PDP, have conducted their primaries and nominated candidates using the dedicated portal for the bye-election. The personal particulars, including academic qualifications of the candidates have been pasted in the INEC Nasarawa Local Government Area (LGA) office in Nasarawa State and uploaded on the Commission’s website.”

PDP primary: Protest in Ondo over bribery allegations


Some members of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ondo State on Friday, staged a protest against the alleged move by some chieftains of the party to doctor the list of delegates for the party’s primary, coming up on July 22, 2020.


The aggrieved PDP members protested at Heritage Hotel, Alagbaka Akure, the state capital, the venue of the PDP Ad Hoc Committee meetings.

Specifically, the protesters alleged that the Deputy Governor of the state, Mr Agboola Ajayi, who recently decamped to the party, was attempting to bribe members of the panel to replace names of the delegates across the 203 wards of Ondo State to favour him.

The protesters also alleged that some of Ajayi’s campaign members, Dr. Kola Ademujimi and a House of Assembly member representing Idanre, Mr Festus Akingbaso, to have been at the hotel with members of the election panel while other aspirants were locked out.


One of the protesters said, ” We want equity and justice, we want this primary to be free and fair and we don’t want the committee to compromise the standard. That is why we are protesting. We don’t want anyone to cut corners, we want to have free and fair primary so that whoever wins will have our full support at the October election.”

The Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Mr Zadok Akintoye, who confirmed the protest, said he could not authenticate the allegation against Ajayi.

However, the Chief Press Secretary to the deputy governor, Mr Tope Okeowo, denied the allegations against his boss, saying some people might be sponsored to malign Ajayi’s name. He said the deputy governor could not be a party to such an activity.

“The governor is not a desperate politician, he is a lawyer and knows the rules of the game, the allegation of the protesters is nothing but falsehood against the person of the deputy governor. I can tell you it is not true,” Okeowo stated.

Impeachment: Ondo chief judge declines to set up panel on deputy governor


The ongoing move to impeach Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Hon Agboola Ajayi, has been stalled following refusal of the Chief Judge of the State, Justice Olaranwaju Akeredolu, to set up a seven-man investigative panel.


Speaker Bamidele Oleyelogun had written to the Chief Judge that impeachment notice has been served on Hon Ajayi.

A total of 14 lawmakers signed an impeachment notice against Ajayi.

Speaker Oleyelogun informed Justice Akeredolu that setting up of the panel was in line with section 188 (5) of the 1999 Constitution as amended.

A letter to the CJ and signed by the Speaker reads: “By the Resolution of the House today pursuant to Section 188 (3) and (4) of the 1999 Constitution as amended it was resolved that the allegations be investigated forthwith.


“It is in line with the above that request that you set up the 7-man panel to conduct the investigation as resolved by the Honourable House and the Panel, shall soon as possible, report back to the House.”

Akeredolu said she also received a letter from Kayode Olatoke SAN that the matter of the impeachment of Ajayi was subjudice.

One of the lawmakers, who spoke on the condition of anonymity with SaharaReporters, confirmed that the disparity in the bribe caused a disagreement among the lawmakers.

He said those who got the bribe swore an oath of secrecy to maintain their loyalty with the governor in the move to impeach Ajayi from office.

The source said, "After others lawmakers knew that their colleagues involved in the plot got more bribe than them, they protested and almost backed out but the governor and the party chairman quickly intervened.

"It was later resolved that those who had earlier got five million naira be paid an additional five million naira each.

"Before they collected the money, they had to sign a paper, which already contained the names of the beneficiaries. They also swore to an oath that they won't back out of the plans.”

Akogun Olugbenga Omole, the House of Assembly Committee Chairman on Information, declined to comment on the issue. Adetimehin could not be reached on Tuesday night to react to the report as well.

Plot To Impeach Me Dead On Arrival, Ondo Deputy Governor Says


Agboola Ajayi, Ondo State Deputy Governor, says the impeachment plot against him will fail.

Ajayi spoke with SaharaReporters on Monday night.

Fourteen members of the state House of Assembly had on Tuesday reportedly served Ajayi a notice of impeachment.

Others included Favour Tomomowo, Rasheed Elegbeleye, Festus Akingbaso, Adewale Adewinle, Samuel Edmisan, Tomide Akinribido and Success Torhukerijor.

The Assembly has twenty-six members and would require 18 members (two-third) to successfully perfect the impeachment.

But Ajayi told SaharaReporters that he had yet to be served the impeachment notice by members of the State House of Assembly contrary to reports.

He said he would consider the impeachment notice as a rumour since he had not been "served officially".

He said, "It is a kangaroo impeachment notice and it is even dead on arrival and I don't know how the Assembly wants to go about it.

"I have not been officially served a copy of the impeachment notice and people are already reporting it.”

The Deputy Governor in the suit filed by his lawyer, Mr I Olatoke sought the enforcement of his fundamental human rights and freedom of association.

Impeachment Plot: Ondo Deputy Governor, Ajayi, Approaches Court To Stop Process


As plot to impeach him thickens, Agboola Ajayi, deputy governor of Ondo State, has approached a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja to stop the impeachment process.

Ajayi in an originating summon on his fundamental human rights sought the declaration of the court to restrain members of the state's House of Assembly from impeaching him as deputy governor.

SaharaReporters obtained the copies of the court documents on Monday, which was filed by Agboola's lawyer, Barrister I. Olatoke, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria.

Agboola is seeking to retain his position as deputy governor despite leaving the All Progressives Congress to join the Peoples Democratic Party.

He also wants the court to stop the Assembly members from using the Department of State Services and the Ondo Commissioner of Police in intimidating the lawmakers loyal to him in the plan to impeach him.

The deputy governor is also praying the court to compel all security agents joined in the suit to pay him the sum of N1bn for breach of his fundamental rights.

Already, there are fears that members of the state's House of Assembly might begin the process of impeaching Ajayi this week following his continued crisis with Governor Akeredolu.

Police vow to prosecute rapists in Ondo


The Police command in Ondo has vowed to ensure the prosecution of all reported cases of rape in the state.


Tee Leo-Ikoro, the command’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), told newsmen on Monday via telephone that rape was a crime against God and humanity.

He said that the Police was working hard to contain the rising cases of rape in the country and assured that anyone arrested would not go unpunished.

“Rape is a crime against God and humanity and no rapists will be allowed to continue to perpetrate such heinous crime in the society,” the command’s spokesman said.

Leo-Ikoro urged parents to live up to their responsibility in the education and upbringing of their children, particularly to educate them on how to relate with strangers or relatives who could take advantage of them.


He also advised parents to desist from leaving their little female children with neighbours, strangers or even family relatives who are of the opposite sex to avoid the children being molested.

“Rape is being committed by people who cannot control their sexual urge or people who are doing it for ritual purposes, who can be family friends, relatives, neighbours or strangers.

“Parents have a role to play by educating the little children not to accept gifts from strangers or even family relatives who could lure them into the evil acts.

“Parents also need to monitor the movement of their adults girls, know the friends they keep and also moderate their dressing against half-naked outfits which could attract opposite sex,” he added.

"I will make further comment when the time is ripe for me to talk on resignation."

Asked if he would be defecting from the All Progressives Congress, the SSG said, "I have just told you I have resigned and nothing more."

However, sources close to Mr Abegunde disclosed that there had been a frosty relationship between him and the governor.

One of the sources disclosed that the SSG would soon join the Peoples Democratic Party ahead of the October 10governorship election in the state.
