Chairman of the House Committee on Information, Hon. Olugbenga Omole, who spoke in a press statement after plenary denied reports that the residence of the Speaker of the Assembly, Hon. Bamidele Oleyelogun, was besieged by the security operatives.
According to the statement, “There was no plan to commence impeachment moves against the Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu.
“The news making the rounds that the Speaker’s Lodge was under siege is a hoax and the imagination of those behind it.
“The lodge was never under seige. The armed Policemen sighted there were at some distance away and were there to maintain peace, law and order.
“On the issue of the N4.3 billion under scrutiny, all relevant documents should be submitted to the Committee on Public Account and Committee on Finance and Appropriation respectively”.
