The Ogun state Gov., Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has denied having any hand in the arrest of Emmanuel Ojo, the blogger who allegedly defamed his wife, Mrs. Olufunso Amosun.

Speaking on the matter, Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Taiwo Adeoluwa, said the Ogun state Governor was not involved in the issue.

He also confirmed that the state govt. made a formal complaint to the Director of the Department of State Services (DSS).

According to Punch Newspapers, Adeoluwa said “The government reported the matter formally to the police and the state Director, Department of Security Services.”

Adding that “The report by the blogger on the First lady is false and calculated to rubbish her image. The governor just arrived from the holy pilgrimage on Sunday; so he did not order the arrest of the blogger.”

The Ogun state first lady has since denied the allegations.
