…begs media to fix Jagunmolu’s mistaken picture
The Yewa North Patriotic Forum has threatened to take legal action against the embattled commissioner for environment, Hon. Abiodun Abudu-Balogun, over alleged involvement in a sexual harassment scandal if found to be true after investigation.
A 16-year-old girl, Barakat Melojuekun had accused Mr. Abudu-Balogun of sexually harassing her in his residence in Ogun waterside local government area.
The state Governor , in his reaction to the allegation, suspended the commissioner till “the conclusion of independent investigations by the Police.”
The group however in a statement by its President, Com. Omobolaji Sanni, said YNPF will follow the case to a logical conclusion and also make its position public after investigations must have been concluded.
The YNPF President who stressed that the group will not take position for now until investigation is concluded, however, called for a discrete investigation so as to unravel the truth.
He added, “we called for a discrete investigation into the matter as until this is done the truth might not be unraveled.
“As an Omoluabi that we are known for in Yewa area of the State, we won’t be drawing any form of battle until the outcome of the investigation is made public.
“Much as we hailed the proactiveness of the government by suspending the Commissioner to preserve the exalted office and for a discrete investigation, we also appeal for an unbiased independent investigation by the concerned authority, as we are watching more than you can ever imagine.
“We are ready to get involved in the investigation with every string we can pull. This is to ensure we join the quest to make our society save for all.
“At the end of our investigation, we shall compare notes with the police and make our position public even if it would warrant that we drag the Commissioner to court.”
Meanwhile, the group appealed to media houses who had mistakenly used the picture of the Commissioner for Housing, Jagunmolu Akande Omoniyi, in place of the embattled Commissioner to make ammendment.
He added,” please make amends as our own Son is not involved in such and will never be involved in such an unGodly act as we pride ourselves as (Ojulowo Omoluabi) Cultured and well nurtured Yoruba sons and daughters.
