A petition has been filed against the former Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi by the Ondo state government for failing to return his official vehicles.

In the petition to the Nigerian police, Ajayi was accused of unlawfully being in possession of a Land Cruiser SUV, New Toyota Hilux, New Toyota Hilux and Toyota Hilux.

Senior Special Assistant to Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu on Special Duties and Strategy, Dr. Doyin Odebowale who signed the petition, said he has been mandated to recover all government properties still in the possession of former political office holders in the state, especially those who served in the immediate past administration.

Odebowale also alleged that the former deputy Governor refused to return the vehicle despite all entreaties.

The petition read;

We lodge this complaint believing that you will use your good offices to look into this brazen act of conversion, and this is being charitable.

“Any person who keeps/detains the property of another with the intent to deprive the owner, permanently, of the usufruct right conferred therefrom, has committed an offence known in law as STEALING.

“This office undertakes to assist the Command with regard to the necessary logistics to recover the converted properties.”
