Slapping Saga; More Troubles For Senator Abiodun Olujinmi

The Senator representing Ekiti South Senatorial district, Mrs Abiodun Olujinmi is not new to controversies.

The one time Deputy-Governor to Governor Ayo Fayose Ekiti got entangled in another brouhaha recently when she caused a chaos in the National Assembly following allegations that she instructed her aide to slap and assault a member of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria.

The parliamentary staff’s undoing was ‘having the gut to ride in an elevator with Senator Olujinmi’, this irked her thus leading to her instruction for the man to be dealt with physically.

Eye witnesses claimed colleagues of the assaulted official were prevented by security operatives from attacking the Senator and they had reported the matter to the police, principals of the National Assembly and also encouraged the official to seek a lawyer to take up the case.

Back home, the constituency of the Senator who is presently at war with Governor Ayo Fayose are not taking the episode lightly.

Information gathered by Papermacheonline revealed that the State Governor, Ayo Fayose has capitalised on the lawmaker’s misdeed and has called the attention of party officials to it.

Some months ago, Olujinmi was accused of an attempt to physically attack the Ekiti State Deputy-Governor, Kolapo Olusola at a public function.

The Senator was claimed to have rushed the Deputy-Governor and made to grab his shirt before she was prevented by standers-by.

Her hatred for the Deputy-Governor was said to have stemmed by the decision of Governor Fayose to have endorsed the Deputy as his successor over Olujinmi who is also seeking to govern the State.

A source revealed to papermacheonline that ‘Olujinmi may be recalled, she has been fighting everyone lately and this is not too good for the image of the State’.
