The Speaker of Ondo State House of Assembly, Olamide Oladiji, has raised the alarm after discovering local charm aka ‘Juju’ in front of his official residence.
The burning fetish item was dumped at the Speaker Lodge on Monday morning, September 25, 2023, ahead of the plenary to commence the impeachment of the Deputy Governor, Lucky Ayedatiwa, on Tuesday, September 26.
Confirming the development to newsmen in Akure, Oladiji said that the lawmakers at the House had been having sleepless nights since they commenced the impeachment process against Ayedatiwa, over alleged gross misconduct.
“Early this morning, we discovered that a sacrifice was placed in the lodge. Aside from that, I have been receiving strange calls from strange people threatening my life and other members,” the Speaker said.
“l am using the medium to tell the world that my life is under threat. I call on the security operatives to checkmate these people who have been threatening my life and other members,”
“This threat started since the day we began the impeachment process. I have already reported to NSCDC among other security agencies,” he stated.
Oladiji said that the House has also been unable to serve the impeachment notice on Ayedatiwa since last week.
He said, however, said that the House had secured a court affidavit to serve the deputy governor the letter through other means.
Oladiji said that all the 26 lawmakers in the House had appended their signature on the petition for the impeachment of the deputy governor.
The speaker debunked insinuation that the lawmakers collected N5 million each to initiate the impeachment process
He said that the 10th assembly under his watch would not compromise.
