Ondo Deputy Gov Responds To Allegation of Assaulting Wife

Mr Lucky Aiyedatiwa, the Ondo State Deputy Governor, has debunked the allegation that he was in the habit of beating his wife, Mrs Oluwaseun.

A group under the aegis of the Society for Women Empowerment had accused Ayedatiwa of physically assaulting his wife in four months which, according to the group was against the ethics of his office.

Responding, the deputy governor in a statement issued by his media aide, Mr Kenneth Odusola, said never had he raised an arm to his wife since they got married.

He dismissed the allegation describing the group as faceless, noting that the media report was baseless and false.

The statement read,” The said allegation of domestic abuse is a figment of the imagination of those behind it, and their ungodly intentions to cause a crisis in the state had been known for weeks and therefore such falsehood did not come as a surprise.

“While His Excellency reserves the right to privacy on issues pertaining to his family, it is pertinent to state clearly that there has never been any domestic violence between the Deputy Governor and his lovely wife, Mrs. Oluwaseun Aiyedatiwa, who at the moment is outside the shores of the country.

“It is not a secret that Mrs. Oluwaseun Aiyedatiwa has lived and worked in the United Kingdom for many years before her husband became an elected public official in Nigeria and since then she has been shuttling between the United Kingdom and Nigeria to take care of the home and the children who are also in the United Kingdom.

“Therefore, any report of alleged domestic issues within the family should be taken as the handiwork of the enemies of the state who are bent on causing a crisis where there is none and we therefore warn those spreading such falsehood to desist or face the consequences.”
