Igboho refuted the accusations made by former senator Femi Ojodu on Sunday that he had collaborated with Bola Tinubu during the Ekiti State re-election.
In an Op-ed written on his Facebook page, Ojodu reported that on Sunday, Bola Tinubu prevailed over Igboho not to obstruct the election after some politicians paid him to interrupt the election.
Igboho, whose Ibadan house was set on fire, spoke to journalists in Ibadan on Tuesday, where he refuted the allegations of Mr. Ojodu, who is also President Muhamadu Buhari’s special advisor.
He said that, contrary to Ojodu’s statements that he worked with Lamidi Adedibu’s late Ibadan Strong Man, Igboho said he only worked for Sen Rasheed Ladoja.
“I have been hearing reports about a man called Femi Ojudu. I don’t know this man. He said the late Chief (Lamidi) Adedibu contracted me in 2009 and we all know that Adedibu died in 2008. I think the man should undergo a mental test because the late Chief Adedibu did not train me for any job and I was not close to the late Adedibu.
“I have a relationship with my father, Senator Rasheed Ladoja, and I have never betrayed him in the years I was his follower.
“I don’t know Femi Ojodu and I didn’t have any business with him. All what he said are lies.”
Igboho who has been in the middle of the Herders/Farmers crisis in Oyo State said politicians are politicising the issue to tarnish his image.
“Politicians are now politicising the herdsmen issue to tarnish my image so as to weaken me.
“Any politician who knows he paid me money to do all that I am doing should come out openly before the whole world. I was not bankrolled by anyone. My paramount concern is for peace to reign in the land of my forefathers.”
