Dirty Politicians Behind Rumours of My Arrest by London Met Police – Oyo Gov’s Wife
The purported arrest by the London Metropolitan police of Mrs Florence Ajimobi, wife of Oyo state governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi had spread like wild fire in the media. But the First Lady has denied the report, blaming the dirty politics of Oyo state as the source of the evil wish for her.
The Oyo state firstly lady who spoke with journalists in Ibadan on the telephone said though she travelled to London with her daughter on Sunday, she never had any encounter with the police in London while stressing that she is due to return to Nigeria tomorrow, Wednesday.
The following telephone conversation ensued between her and some reporters this evening:
Journalists: Good evening, Ma
Mrs Ajimobi: Good evening. How are you?
Journalists: We are fine.
Journalist: Is it true that you have been arrested in London?
Mrs Ajimobi: It is a lie. I don’t know what they are talking about and where they got the information from. I left Nigeria on Sunday, to take my daughter back to school and hopefully I should be in Nigeria tomorrow (today). I don’t know where they got that rumour from.
Journalists: Were you at any time invited by the police?
No. I came…I have never been invited by the police and I don’t know what they are talking about. And I don’t know where the rumour is coming from.
Journalists: What is your mission at this time in England?
What is my mission?Like I said, I took my daughter here. I have a 14-year-old daughter. She is schooling here and she has been schooling here over the past five years. She came in 2007. She should have returned to school on Sunday but because of Sallah I could not bring her. We left Nigeria Sunday morning and she returned to school yesterday (Monday) morning. That is my mission here.
Journalists: Did you read the report of your arrest in the online media and newspapers?
Yes I did. I was shocked and surprised when I read the report. There is no iota of truth in everything they said in the report. It is blatant lie and as far as I am concerned….journalists that allow themselves to be used…even if they are going to write anything, they should try and find out, get information and be sure of what they are writing.
When are you expected back in the country?
Tomorrow morning (today).
Journalists: It was alleged that you have travelled out of the country 52 times since the inauguration of this administration.
Mrs Ajimobi: (bursts into laughter) That is ridiculous. If I travelled 57 times, that means I don’t live in Nigeria at all…(bursts into laughter again).
Journalists: Ok. How many times have you travelled?
Maybe when I come back I will give you my passport…(laughs again). I want us to deal with facts. When I come back, you can take a look at my passport and see. I have a daughter that has been schooling in England since 2007 and if you look at my passport, you will see I have travelled less (than the number quoted). My daughter is complaining as people are complaining that I travel too much….she is just going to be 15 in…..She comes to Nigeria…
