The Ondo State Commissioner of Police, Danladi Mshebwalla, yesterday denied an allegation that he collected money from Governor Olusegun Mimiko during the state governorship election.
Mshebwalla, who spoke with Daily Trust yesterday, described the insinuation from opposition parties as a fallacy and an attempt to rubbish his integrity.
He challenged the opposition parties to come out with facts, “instead of making unnecessary allegation”.
The two major opposition parties in the state, the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had alleged that security operatives in the state collected money from the state government to rig the October 20 governorship election.
“They should come out with concrete evidence, where I collected money from Mimiko. Let me tell you, Mimiko worked for his victory. Their allegation is just to tarnish my image, they cannot substantiate it. I have my name to protect. None of the contestants came to me to seek my assistance. I was not even here on the day of the election, so how could I have collected money”, he said.
