I didn’t order probe of Chief Judge- Akeredolu

Ondo State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu has denied reports in the social media that he ordered probe of the Chief Judge, Justice Olanrewaju Akeredolu.

The governor said the twist of the report, which erroneously painted him as ‘ordering’ any ‘probe’ as regards reported or alleged infractions with reference to prosecutorial misconduct or whatever alleged unpleasant circumstances, is repugnant.’

Akeredolu, who spoke through his Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr. Donald Ojogo, said the Office of the Attorney General ‘is constitutionally empowered on all matters relating to public prosecution.

According to him, “Mr. Governor has no reason to influence whatever step and or actions the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice deems necessary to take in respect of this particular subject matter.

”This statement is issued to correct the wrong perception the slant of the story in circulation in a section of the social media may have created.”
