AJIMOBI’S BOYS, WHILE MOVING OVER N350M TO BANKS By Admin Posted on April 12, 2019 3 min read 0 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Share on Tumblr Unknown gunmen attacked Oyo State Governor, Ajimobi’s boys while coveying N357million to some banks in the Ibadan, capital of the state. According to Sahara Reporters, the money was moved out of the residence of the Governor and his wife Florence, but those conveying the money had not reached any of their destinations when they were attacked by unknown gunmen, who made away with the money. A source confirmed to SaharaReporters that the man who drove the vehicle, an old man known as ‘Baba Obe’, is a trusted hand, as he has been around the Ajimobi family for decades. In fact, he drove Ajimobi’s father, who was once a member of the Old Western Region House of Assembly, for a long time in his lifetime. These days, he drives Ajimobi’s last born. “He was just drafted in to do this,” said the source. “The money was moved out in a Toyota Hiace bus. They were going to deposit some of it in Access Bank and the other in Heritage Bank, but they were attacked on Ring Road, just before the roundabout where a road leads to Iyaganku and the other to Apata. Everything happened between 7:20am and 7:35am.” SaharaReporters further reported that the man detailed to oversee the movement of the money, simply identified as ‘Semiu’, was wounded during the attack, his head hit with a gun; and that the money was passed on to her by Damola, a personal assistant to the Governor’s wife who is also the daughter of Segun Bolarinwa, Special Adviser to the Governor on Security. Semiu has since been arrested, especially as the Oyo government hierarchy believe that only an insider could have known that the money was being moved out.
