Gov Adeleke Speaks On Fighting Suspended Chief Judge Over Refusal To Release Convicted ‘Murderer’ Adedoyin

The Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, has debunked claims of fighting the suspended state’s Chief Judge, Justice Oyebola Ojo, over the refusal to release convicted and sentenced murderer, Chief Raymond Adedoyin.

Adeleke, in a statement through his spokesman, Olawale Rasheed, on Sunday, disclosed that he is being blackmailed in the case of Adedoyin.

Earlier, reports made the rounds online alleging that Adeleke, his sister, Dupe Adeleke-Sanni, alongside the Commission of Justice Wole Bada, are friends of Adedoyin and are persecuting Justice Ojo over the sentence of the murderer.

The publication also alleged that a relative of Adedoyin has been appointed as the acting Chief Judge to aid his release from prison.

However,  Adeleke, in response to the report, said he is being blackmailed for refusing to shield and protect Justice Ojo from a corruption probe, insisting his family is not friends with Adedoyin.

The Governor also denied claims of interference in the case of Adedoyin while it lasted from the beginning to end, and no member of his family was involved in the legal process.

The Governor noted that Adedoyin is an All Progressives Congress (APC) loyalist, contrary to claims that he is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), adding that the crisis rocking the state judiciary has to do with the series of petitions from judicial officials on the alleged misconduct of the Chief Judge.
