Leave Adedoyin out of Osun CJ’s travail, Adedoyin’s family warns detractors
The family of Chief Rahman Adedoyin has distanced itself from the current travail of the suspended Chief Justice of Osun State, Mrs Adepele Ojo.
Adedoyin, who is currently at a correctional centre in Lagos, was convicted over the death of Timothy Adegoke, an MBA student of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Osun State.
, According to a statement on behalf of the family and signed by Director of Media and Publicity of the conglomerate, Dr Kunle Awojoodu, the Adedoyin family condemned the defamatory rumours being peddled on various media, social and print, linking Dr Adedoyin with Governor Adeleke vis a vis the travails of “Chief Judge” Adepele Ojo and her current travails on allegations of corruption.
The statement, titled: ‘REMOVAL OF JUSTICE ADEPELE OJO: LEAVE DR ADEDOYIN AND HIS FAMILY OUT OF POLITICAL DRAMA’, stated further: “It is highly disheartening that some never-do-well elements within the society could, simply, for selfish and face saving reasons, descend to the abyss of pedestrianism, alleging that it is because of Dr Adedoyin’s case that Governor Adeleke of Osun State is pitched against the CJ and, at the same time, being called to account by the Osun State Law Makers!
“It indubitably smacks of unwarranted malice and sheer hypocrisy that anyone could level this type of mischievous allegation against Dr Adedoyin, a renown educationist, who has never been a politician, had nexus with politics or sought any political contract whatsoever, in their mad rush either to corner undue public advantage or circumvent unavertable responsibilities.
“The family of Dr Adedoyin wishes to categorically make it clear that we do not have any relationship with Governor Adeleke or his family.
“The public is equally informed that neither Dr Adedoyin nor his family has any special relationship with any politician or has link with the current travails of Justice Adepele Ojo. Hence, the family strongly dissociates itself from unfounded rumours being peddled and negatively marketed, as usual, to this horrible effect.
“It must, however, be noted and asserted that, as law abiding citizens, the members of our family wish to vehemently advise the Solicitors of Justice Adepele Ojo and her media foot soldiers to leave Dr Adedoyin and his family alone and confront whatever challenges she might face with utmost maturity and sense of responsibility without resorting to cheap blackmail or any pretentious linkage with our family or any member thereof.”
Adedoyin family, therefore warned that “anyone whosoever, being the architects, middlemen or peddlers of misinformation, that attempt, to be defamatory against our family shall be meted with full wrath of the law.
