DSS Frees Embattled Ogun Council Boss

The Department of State Security Service (DSS) has released the suspended Chairman of Ogun East Local Government, Wale Adedayo.

Adedayo had dragged Governor Dapo Abiodun before the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) demanding the investigation of the governor over alleged mismanagement of local government funds.

Adedayo, who was also suspended by the council’s legislative house, accused Governor Abiodun of withholding the statutory Federal Allocation due to the state’s local governments since 2021.

However, the DSS invited Adedayo, who turned up for an interrogation on Friday, September 1, to respond to the petition submitted to the Command by the state government.

The embattled council boss had denied the allegation of instigating acts of public disturbance but the State Security Service decided to detain him due to his refusal to withdraw the allegation leveled against Ogun State Governor.

His incarceration led to various groups and Human rights Lawyer, Femi Falana calling for his release.
