Oyo recovers 13 vandalised vehicles from Ajimobi’s aides

Ademola Babalola, Ibadan

The Oyo State Government on Thursday confirmed the recovery of 14 vehicles taken away by the officials of the last administration.

The recovery followed the expiration of an ultimatum given to the officials of the last administration by Governor Seyi Makinde.

Former governor Abiola Ajimobi and his aides were recently accused of emptying the state transport pool. But Ajimobi, in response, accused his successor of pursuing a ‘mundane issue’ leaving behind the serious task of governance.

The Chief Press Secretary to Makinde, Mr Taiwo Adisa, confirmed to our correspondent on Thursday that 14 vehicles had been recovered from aides who served under Ajimobi.

He, however, said 13 of the recovered vehicles had been vandalised.

Adisa said some of the vehicles were retrieved from mechanics, some from some residences while one was found abandoned close to the Agodi Government House.

According to Adisa, “Career officers made phone calls to some officials keeping custody of government vehicles, after their phone numbers were supplied.

“Some of them responded and gave addresses where the vehicles were recovered. Some were in mechanic workshops; others were tracked with a tracking device and recovered.

“Surprisingly too, one was parked and abandoned at a road near the Agodi Government House and  security agents were alerted. They went there to tow it to the government house. Thirteen of the recovered vehicles are not working as they have been vandalised.

“They (ex-officials) completely ran them aground for reasons best known to them. The number of recovered vehicles is still a far cry from the number taken away; because if just an official made away with 11 vehicles, you can imagine how many vehicles are still in their possession.”
