Governor Gboyega Oyetola’s aide, Jamiu Olawumi has blamed the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola for the incessant jailbreaks in the country, noting that the minister has been distracted with politics.
Jamiu, who is the Special Adviser to Governor Oyetola on Education, divulged that many prisoners about 4,000 are at large due to negligence of the minister, who is the former governor of Osun state.
He said this during an interview on Frank Talk, a current affairs program on Rave FM in Osogbo.
According to him, Aregbesola has capacity but is currently distracted by the crisis he instigated in Osun.
“What is happening in Osun State is also affecting the Federal Government. How many prisoners have we lost to the crowd? 4000…we have never had it so bad in Nigeria because he (Aregbesola) has distracted himself with happenings in Osun, the Minister for Interior is distracted.
“He has capacity but is distracted. Prisoners are jumping fences and he’s helpless. He is distracted by the crisis he is instigating in Osun. This crisis, you cannot find any masquerade behind it other than Ogbeni Aregbesola.” he said.
Jamiu also raised alarm about some “fake uniform person” in Osun adding that any agency that is supervised by the Ministry of Interior will be difficult to supervise elections in Osun.
“By the time they bring fake uniform persons to Osun, it will not only affect APC, but it will also affect PDP. That is why I am shouting out now because somebody is trying to dig a hole on the ship of progress while on the deep sea,” he alleged.
