From Babalola Gafar, Abeokuta

The Chairman of the Labour Party in Ogun State, Comrade Abayomi Arabambi, has advised the embattled former Chairman of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), in the State, Adebayo Dayo, to watch the steps being taken  lest he puts his son's future at risk with alleged unbridled greed.
The advice came on the heels of an exparte motion and injunction slammed against the younger Dayo’s five-bedroom duplex at No. 19, Harmony Avenue, Phase 3, Area 2, Kasumu Estate, Ring Road, Ibadan, Oyo State by the Oyo State High Court.

The orders, which were issued on the 8th of June, 2020, were later pasted on the said property by the court officials. 

The orders followed a case of an alleged stealing, diversion of properties and illegal enrichment initiated by Senator Buruji Kashamu against Dayo’s son, Adebola Dayo, who until the frosty relationship between his father and the Senator became politically gangrenous and festering, was an employee of Kashamu.

The orders read: “An order of mareva injunction is hereby granted restraining the Defendants, his allies, privies, assigns, solicitors, attorneys, agents or howsoever called from dissipating, selling, attempting to sell, transferring, mortgaging, alienating, gifting, letting, removing from the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court or dealing in anyway inimical or adversely affecting the interests of the Claimants of howsoever called, the property lying, being and situate at No. 19, Harmony Avenue, Phase 3, Area 2, Kasumu Estate, Ring Road, Ibadan, Oyo State pending the hearing and determination of this suit.

“An order of mareva injunction is hereby granted restraining the Defendants, whether by himself, his servants, relatives, solicitors, associates, trustees, agents, subordinates, privies or anybody howsoever called from giving instructions or directions for the withdrawal from, transfer out of alienating, disposing off/or dealing with the money kept in all his bank accounts kept in Nigeria, whether solely or jointly owned by him, whether directly or indirectly for his benefit, pending the trial of the suit.”

The case with Suit No. I/459/2020 was adjourned to the 22nd of June, 2020, for hearing of the Motion on Notice, which must be served within 48 hours from the day the orders were issued.

The Daily Crucible recalls that a Federal High Court sitting in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital had on the 10th of June, 2020 dismissed a fundamental rights suits filed by Adebola Dayo against Senator Buruji Kashamu; the Divisional Police Officer, Ijebu-Igbo, Ogun State; the Commissioner of Police, Ogun State; the Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG), Zone 2, Onikan, Lagos and the Inspector-General of Police (IGP).

In a related development, one Comrade Adedayo Sanusi, a panel beater who resides in Ijebu-Igbo, Ogun State, has allegedly given insight into how Adebola Dayo allegedly diverted and sold a 2010 Toyota 4 Forerunner Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV).

In an affidavit of facts said to be deposed to by Sanusi, who claimed to be on a retainership with Omo Ilu Foundation in Ijebu-Igbo, Ijebu North Local Government Area of Ogun State.

By virtue of the retainership, he worked with the Chairman and some other members of staff.

During the course of his work, he claimed to have met Adebola Dayo in the Omo Ilu Foundation by virtue of his role in the foundation.

He stated: “Sometimes in June 2015, Mr. Bola Dayo brought a Toyota 4 Runner, 2010 model to me for repairs after the said vehicle had been in an accident.

“That the vehicle belongs to Senator Buruji Kashamu, the Chairman of the Omo Ilu Foundation and the picture of the vehicle is hereby annexed as EXHIBIT 1 and as forming part of this affidavit.

“That Mr. Bola Dayo told me that the vehicle is valued at N4,000,000 (Four Million Naira) and so I should safeguard with all care.

“That I was informed by Mr. Bola Dayo to wait for his further instructions on the repairs required on the vehicle.

“That thereafter, the said Mr. Bola Dayo directed some people to me from Lagos for an inspection of the vehicle.

“That some days later after the inspection, Mr. Bola Dayo returned with those people who inspected to carry the vehicle while informing me that he had sold the vehicle to them.

“That I recently got a call from a representative of the foundation after instructing that I advise on cost of repairs and carry out the said repairs and I told them Mr. Bola Dayo came with some people in 2018 to carry the vehicle and informed me that he has sold the vehicle.”

Reacting to the development, Arabambi said it was more than obvious that Adebayo Dayo might have willfully allowed his own greed to put his son's future at risk over multiple litigations the boy had to contend with.

The Labour party Chairman in Ogun State accused elder Dayo of causing his son to initiate the litigations against his former employer and benefactor, Senator Buruji Kashamu and the attendant counter-claims now being reeled out by Kashamu against the Dayos. 

"Knowing how much he and his son had benefitted from Senator Kashamu in the last 10 years, one would have expected Dayo to thread softly and serve out his tenure peacefully. 

"His greed and insatiable quest for money will not allow him even as 75-year-old man. Now, he has plunged his son into avoidable problems. It is a big shame and I doubt if his son will ever forgive him," Arabambi added.
