Dapo Abiodun did not admit committing crime in US – lawyers

Governor Dapo Abiodun says he didn’t admit to committing crime anywhere. He said this in a statement by the state commissioner of information, Waheed Odusile.

TheCornet reports that some members of the Abiodun’s party, the All Progressives Congress, had alleged he was jailed in the United States for identity fraud.

But, the governor, in a statement issued by his lawyers, Afe Babalola Chambers, pushed back the allegations.

Odusile’s statement reads: “Our attention has been drawn to a story with a misleading caption in some online newspapers.

“This particular story was purportedly from a letter written by Afe Babalola & Co, to the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a response to a petition written by a political mercenary.

“Nowhere in the letter written by the Afe Babalola & Co. was there any admission by Prince Dapo Abiodun to have admitted to committing any crime.

“It should, however, be noted that their obvious game plan is to discredit the governor and get through the backdoor, what they could not get through the ballot.

“Prince Dapo Abiodun is unperturbed by this machination. Just like they failed in 2019, they will also fail this time around.

“For the avoidance of doubt, let it be noted that Prince Dapo Abiodun did not admit ever being convicted of any crime.”
