…says writer is a coward, con artist

The Onagoruwa Family of Odogbolu in Odogbolu Local Government Area of Ogun state, has disclaimed a write up purportedly written by a family member attacking the personality of Governor Dapo Abiodun.

The family, in a letter signed by the family head of Onagoruwa and Baba Oba of Odogbolu Kingdom, Emeritus Professor Tola Atinmo and the Secretary of Onagoruwa Descendants Union, Rev Wale Onagoruwa, described the write up as fictitious.

An acclaimed member of Onagoruwa Family, AOO Olu- Onagoruwa had written against Governor Abiodun tagging him a governor without honour and dirty secret.

But in a statement by the Onagoruwa Family, AOO, who claimed to be a writer and vegetable based farmer based in Ilishan-Remo, was disowned, saying such a person never existed in the family.

According to the family, there is no a person in the family with such a name and based in Illishan-Remo, asking Governor Abiodun and members of the public to disregard such a write up.
