Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, on Tuesday sacked Mr Allen Sowore, Special Assistant on New Media to the embattled Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi.
Akeredolu announced the decision in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Olusegun Ajiboye.
Sowore’s sack is believed to be linked to his role in leaking the video of the altercation between the Deputy Governor and the State Commissioner of Police at the Government House gate on Saturday night.
The video went viral leading to the Governor issuing a disclaimer and dissociating himself from the action of the Commissioner of Police.
Hon Agboola Ajayi had been at loggerheads with his boss, Akeredolu, before he finally resigned from the All Progressives Congress, APC, and joined the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.
Ajayi had maintained that he remained the Deputy Governor of the state despite his resignation from the All Progressives Congress.
The statement advised Sowore to submit all government’s property in his possession to the Chief of Staff to the Governor with immediate effect.
