The speaker of Oyo State House Assembly, Rt. Hon. Adebo Ogundoyin has reportedly jailed five aides includinv two men of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), a cook and two private security guards for stealing N3.5million cash at his lodge, in Agodi Ibadan.

According to SaharaReporters, the aides were arrested by policemen from Iyaganku command.

It was gathered that a portion of the lodge was set ablaze by the aides after the money was stolen from the lodge.

A credible source at the police command told SaharaReporters on the phone that police was able to recover N500,000 from the aides after a week in police net.

According to the source, Adebo Ogundoyin who was abroad when the incident happened rushed down to Nigeria after he learnt that his house was set ablaze.

He said, “We have released them on bail. The Speaker actually wanted police to deal with them but he later considered them for bail when the state Commandant of the NSCDC, Commandant Adaralewa Michael, intervened. Two men of NSCDC, two personal security aides and a cook were arrested and detained.

“We were able to recover N500,000 from them. We visited the area where they set ablaze. It was well planned by those people. They were in the cell for more than two weeks before the Speaker returned from abroad.”
