To the dethroned Oyo State Park Management System boss, Lamidi Auxilliary, it was like a bad dream when he was paraded by the police and charged to court recently.

 

Papermacheonline can reveal that the accused, a former aide of Governor Seyi Makinde landed himself in trouble after granting an interview where he threatened another top aide of the governor, Seye Famojuro and promised to reveal more in another interview.

 

Just some hours after the interview, Auxilliary was arrested by the DSS in his home at Olodo, Ibadan before he was later paraded and charged to court for murder, armed robbery and illegal arms posession.

 

A source hinted papermacheonline that Auxilliary’s threat to reveal more was like a death knell, explaining that he was the head of Governor Makinde’s ‘protection team’ and his decision to start granting interviews on radio is unacceptable. Again, the person he threatened, Seye Famojuro is the closest person to Governor Makinde.

 

The source furthermore explained ‘are you aware he just left the UCH some months ago? He was hit and injured by a car when he went to buy drugs, he almost died! So, we all wondered how he could get so silly and start granting interviews. He is just an illiterate and there are so many evidence against him’. The source revealed.

 

In the interview he granted to Media personnel, Ajibola Akinyefa, in the Yoruba Language, the former PMS chairman said, “If he (Famojuro) is the governor or Seyi Makinde is, we will know. It is just a matter of time. Everybody will face the consequences of their actions. The people he chose to manage the park are cheating themselves.

 

hen asked if it was his hooliganism that led to his removal, Auxiliary queried how many people reported that he beat them to the police.

He further said that Seye would still return to Ijesha because Ibadan is not his homeland.
