Sanwo-Olu’s CoS drops litigation threat against Gani Adams

The Chief of Staff to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, Mr Tayo Ayinde, has dropped a litigation threat against the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams.

Ayinde’s lawyer, Adeyinka Olumide-Fusika (SAN), in a letter dated Wednesday, March 27, 2024, addressed to Adams’ lawyers, OKC Attorneys, stated that Ayinde “has considered your (Adams’) letter dated Monday, March 25, 2024, in response to my letter of March 20, 2024, on his behalf, to your client, Iba Gani Adams, the Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland.”

It was earlier reported on Tuesday that Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, alias Sunday Igboho; and Ayinde, had both threatened to drag Adams to court for allegedly accusing them of plotting an assassination.

Igboho and Ayinde, in separate pre-action letters by their lawyers, demanded that Adams should retract the said assassination claim against them or they would drag him to court.

However, in a statement on Tuesday by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Aderemi, Adams described the voice note as distorted.

He also described the threat of lawsuits by Igboho and Ayinde as “a grand conspiracy” to discredit his person, saying he was ready to do everything to protect his hard-earned name and the office he represented.

Adams’ lawyer said, “Firstly, our client denies the content and inferences drawn by you in your letter under reference regarding the alleged audio clip you attributed to our client. As stated in your letter, the content of the alleged video clip, which is a concocted, distorted, and disjointed part of a private conversation between our client and another person in 2021, was published and widely circulated by one Chief Sunday Adeyemo (Alias ‘Sunday Ighoho’) and not our client.”

Toeing the line of peace, Ayinde’s lawyer in response to Adams, said his client understood that Adams had denied responsibility for the viral voice note and would let the matter rest.
