Impeached Chairman of Ijebu-East Local Government, Wale Adedayo, was again on Monday arrested by the police in Ogun State.

Adedayo announced his arrest in a post on his Facebook page on Monday afternoon.

The former council chairman said he was arrested because of a petition allegedly submitted to the police by the state government.

Adedayo wrote, “Son of man is being taken to Ogun State Police CID at Eleweran, Abeokuta. They claim the state government wrote a petition against me.

“If it is death, I follow the path of the patriarchs. Ase di owo Olodumare!” [sic].

He was impeached from office following a letter he wrote to Chief Olusegun Osoba and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, accusing Governor Dapo Abiodun of diverting council funds.

He was earlier detained by the Department of State Services for about three days over a petition from the state government accusing him of inciting comments.

Adedayo’s arrest on Monday comes a few days after Governor Abiodun said he would be held accountable for defaming him.

“There are two things: he (Adedayo) lied against me as the governor; he lied against me as Dapo Abiodun; he spoiled my name; and he tried to incite the public against the government. Wale Adedayo has to answer all these allegations one after the other,” Abiodun had said.

State Police Public Relations Officer, Omolola Odutola, claimed not to be aware of Adedayo’s arrest.

She promised to get back as soon as she is briefed.
