According to his account, the Governor commissioned his house in Soka, Ibadan, in 2013. The house in mention, is the one which was razed by arsonists in the early hours of Tuesday, January 26th, 2021.
His words: “Governor Seyi Makinde and I have been together for a long time. He commissioned my house that was razed by hoodlums in 2013 and also provided a 500kva transformer for my street.
“I supported him and campaigned for him during the 2019 governorship election in Oyo, I met him through the former governor of Oyo State, Rasheed Ladoja.
‘’Rasheed Ladoja encouraged me to support Makinde during the election 2019 and I showed my utmost support because I never rejected any advice from Ladoja but Makinde never kept to his words due to the insecurity in the state and the incessant killings. So I took it upon myself to restore security by issuing the quit notice to the herders in the state.’’
