Rep-elect Akinlayo Kolawole refutes EFCC arrest rumors
Winner of the February 25, 2023 House of Representatives election in Ekiti North Federal Constituency (II), Akinlayo Davidson Kolawole, has refuted the rumors that he was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
He stated this while reacting to the allegations that he was picked by the operatives of the anti-graft agency shortly after getting his certificate of return by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
In a statement issued by him on Friday, Hon. Kolawole stated that he was never arrested and that members of the public should disregard the rumors as they have no iota of truth.
“I am startled that some mischievous elements would go as far as peddling rumors about me,I was never arrested by any one or any agency.
“If I was arrested, I won’t be here making these statements. These are handiwork of political jabbers who seek nothing but confusion and personality destruction.
“I urge our people to disregard these news as they are nothing but mere propaganda which will not succeed”.
