Osoba punches Okorounmu “He is a serial blackmailer, character assassin”

Former Ogun State Governor, Aremo Olusegun Osoba has replied  Afinefere henchman and politician, Chief Femi Okorounmu, who had accused him of brokering the deal between South governors and Obasanjo.

According to Osoba “People should not take Okurounmu serious. That is his character. He is very good in character assassination. I will not be the first person that will be his victim, he has been doing so to others. It is this kind of character that he has been exhibiting that destroyed his relationship with the Onabanjo family, I mean late Chief Bisi Onabanjo former civilian governor of Ogun State. Is Okurounmu welcomed in Onabanjo’s house today? It is the same with late Chief Bola Ige’s family. People should ask Okurounmu what is the relationship between him and Bola Ige’s family today? Okurounmu is a blackmailer that should be ignored,” he declared.

 Osoba, who had earlier expressed determination to take Okurounmu to the cleaners if he denies his allegations against him, however, said that he is putting his own memoir together to set the records straight about the event of that period and the role he played. He warned that any more attack from Okurounmu will force him to further expose the Afenifere leader. “I’m not ready to join words with him but if he says anything against me, I will open up and expose him more”, Osoba said.

However, when taken up on Osoba’s reply to his allegations and accusations, Okurounmu insisted that he stood by his allegations against Osoba. He, however, refused to provide facts to back up his allegation as challenged by Osoba.

“For now, I have no further comments. But I stand by my allegations against Osoba, and luckily that day when we met at Ambassador Walter Carrington’s programme and he challenged me, I reaffirmed my position and I was supported by Chief Ayo Adebanjo who confirmed that everything I said about Osoba regarding that alliance between Obasanjo and former AD governors was right. What else do you want me to say? For now, I’m not replying Osoba,” he said.
