An aide to former governor of Oyo State, Senator Rashidi Ladoja, Mr. Sunday Adeyemo, fondly called “Sunday Igboho” has debunked the rumour doing the round in the media that he has relocated to the United Kingdom for safety due to some assassination attempts on his life.
Speaking with journalists on Tuesday in Ibadan, Adeyemo said he was surprised when he received different phone calls from all parts of the country that he had relocated to United Kingdom for safety.
“I have not relocated to United Kingdom. I am in Nigeria with members of my family enjoying ourselves. I move around the country freely without anybody or group of people threatening me.”
Adeyemo further disclosed that he had not travelled out of the country in the last five months and there had never been a single reported case of assassination attempt on his life.
He said the rumour being circulated in the media has a political undertone, urging members of the public to
disregard such information that he has relocated from Nigeria to UK.
Adeyemo, also maintained that he has a good working relationship with his boss, Senator Ladoja, saying that he is a worthy ambassador of the state.
He enjoined members of the press to shun sensational journalism and embrace professionalism by confirming the authenticity of their reports before going to the press.
