Lawsuit against Chief Justice’s half-brother dropped days after he cried out from jail

The office of the Ondo State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice has ordered the discontinuation of the suit filed against Mr Olupelumi Fagboyegun pending before a Chief Magistrates’ Court.

Fagboyegun released a video, claiming his half-sister, the Ondo State Chief Judge, Justice Olanrewaju Akeredolu, was using her position to keep him in jail.

He said he has been in jail for 3 years after he was arrested for forced entry into his father’s house in Akure and since then, he has been held without trial, and he claimed his half-sister is responsible.

However, Justice Olanrewaju Akeredolu said she had no hand in Fagboyegun’s detention. She said the case was the handiwork of some persons who wanted to use Fagboyegun against her family.

Governor Rotimi Akeredolu had ordered the attorney-general, Mr Charles Titiloye, to investigate the matter and has now ordered the discontinuation of the case.
