Oyo Deputy Governor, Commissioners, Barred From Entering Ajimobi’s Fidau Prayer

The Deputy Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Rauf Olaniyan, and two commissioners in the state have been prevented from attending the 8 days Fidau prayer (prayer for deceased) for the immediate past Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi.

The DAILY VENDOR reported that Ajimobi, who died at First Consultants and Cardiology Hospital in Lagos, was buried in his Oluyole Estate residence in Ibadan

This newspaper recalls that the state government currently led by Seyi Makinde and Ajimobi’s family had been at loggerheads since the demise of Makinde’s predecessor.

On Sunday, a delegation of Oyo State government led by Olaniyan, Barristers Abiodun Abdul-Raheem and Seun Ashamu, commissioners for land and energy respectively were turned back from entering the Oluyole residence of Ajimobi, venue of the 8th day Fidau prayer for the deceased.

It was learnt that security details assigned to the residence were said to have resisted the state executives efforts to enter the venue, as they almost engaged in open confrontation with security details attached to the deputy governor. They insisted that “Madam is with the key to the gate”.

Olaniyan, Abdul-Raheem and Ashamu, left after making frantic calls to people believed to be close to the family.
