Former deputy governor of Osun State and governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party in the state, Senator Iyiola Omisore has cried out to those that cared to listen that he has no case of corruption with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
This is coming in response to series of questions by concerned Nigerians why his name was omitted from the 50 prominent Nigerians that the Federal Government placed on travel ban.
The former deputy governor in a statement issued by his media aide, Mr Jide Fakorede, said; “Senator Omisore has no corruption charges against him anywhere and he should not be included on the travel ban list.”
“This fictitious group is a creation of those who were not happy with the recent political developments in Osun State and who obviously do not mean well for the state but only trying to mutilate the high integrity of Senator Omisore.”
“Senator Iyiola Omisore was wrongly alleged in 2016 and he surrendered himself to the EFCC for investigation and was given a ‘clean bill of health’ by the anti-graft body after a thorough investigation.”
“It is on record that no case was instituted against him in any court of our land and neither was he arraigned before any court either. He has been enjoying his freedom and has even presented himself for election into public office passing through all security screenings. So we ask, what is the noise about?”
“The basis for placement on the watch list and travel ban is to ensure that those answering EFCC charges are held within the country and for someone not having a current case with the anti-graft agency, there may be no basis to restrict his movement.”
