The Speaker of the House of Assembly, Olagunju Ojo, who made this known in an interview with journalists, confirmed that the House was notified through a letter by the Oyo state police command that Akinmoyede is under investigation.
“Yes, we received a letter that he is under investigation, I am not aware that he is been taken to Abuja or not,” Ojo said.
Hon. Ojo said, “I am not aware that he has been taken to Abuja. I am only aware that he is under investigations but I am not sure if he is in Abuja or not.”
Hon. Olatoye Sugar represented the Lagelu constituency in the House of Assembly from 2011-2015 on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), before he was elected House of Representatives member for Lagelu/Akinyele federal constituency in 2015.
