The Nigeria Police Force in recent time has been used to intimidate our friend Asiwaju Adekanmbi, he is a law abiding citizen of this State and Nigeria at large. He has never for once been found guilty of any criminal or fraudulent act by any institution both within the Country and outside the country.
It all started in December 2017 when our friend is been molested by the NPF
“He had concluded plans to inaugurate a project at Mapo Hall roundabout, Owo, in December 2017 as part of the annual thanksgiving that he usually organise at the end of the year.he usually hold an annual special thanksgiving service when choristers and clerics from different Christian denominations would be invited to lead his people in praising God. While the programme was ongoing, some police officers invaded the premises of the event on the orders of the state government and arrested Hon.Femi Adekanmbi, because some people in government felt threatened by his popularity and had concluded that he wanted to use the project to score cheap political points.”
However, his intentions were clear; all he was doing was to beautify his town. It’s quite unfortunate that some people read political meanings to it to the detriment of the impact the project would have on the town.
The allegations against him?
When the police invited him to Akure, it became a different case entirely. They brought out a petition submitted over years ago against him as the reason for his invitation. We all felt terribly bad about the harassment. He however thank God for the good people of Owo in particular and Ondo State in general who stood by him and condemned the intimidation and harassment. He later returned home based on various interventions, he nevertheless accept the witch-hunting and persecution; it is part of the game and it makes him stronger.
Asiwaju Adekanmbi Femi served as a Commissioner for Special duties, Culture and Tourism under the administration of Dr. Olusegun Mimiko for few months, of which every of his activities was well supervised and approved by the State Governor.
Several people served longer months under the administration of Mimiko and none of them has never been invited by the NPF then why intimidating our friend.
Asiwaju Adekanmbi Femi who served the State diligently was again petitioned at the Economic and Financial Crime Commission by Ondo State Attorney General Barr. Olawoye SAN, for the same petition that he is been invited for again.
EFCC are presently investigating the petition against our resolute friend. But because the State Commissioner of Police is under the control of the State Governor, the State Governor and the Commissioner for Justice has decided to use the Men of the Nigeria Police to intimidate our Friend again.
Both the State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu SAN and the Attorney General of the State are from Owo local government, while Asiwaju Adekanmbi Femi is also from Owo Local government of the State.
But for the popularity and acceptability of Asiwaju Adekanmbi aspiration to serve the State at the apex office come 2020 the State Governor and Attorney General are feeling inferior as our Friend is the most popular and accepted aspirant for the 2020 gubernatorial election.
On the 2nd of July 2019 another invitation letter was issued to invite Femi Adekanmbi to kindly come to the Criminal investigation department of the Nigeria Police Force due to an investigation ongoing on a case of fraud and financial mismanagement reported to the commissioner of police by someone undisclosed.
We are making our position clear, that “we the OYGG are solidly behind our friend Asiwaju Adekanmbi Femi and we are saying that the Nigeria Police Force and the government of Ondo State under the leadership of Akeredolu Rotimi SAN, should thread softly with our friend as his antecedent has showed him as a gentle man to the core.
His political aspiration towards the 2020 election is soaring higher everyday and the State governor is scared because of his clear chances of unsiting him from the Alagbaka apex office.
The Ondo State Youth for Good Governance is calling on the Inspector General of Police to intervene into this intimidating and molesting case of our dear Friend Asiwaju Adekanmbi Femi.
