“Regarding the on-going suits in Lagos; I did it to affirm my belief in the rule of law, and even after the order was made, you disobeyed it and continue to promote illegality in Ogun state. But because of the persistent threat by Otunba Gbenga Daniel (OGD), Hon. Akinlaja to my life to drop the suit.

“You threatened to deal with me on many occasions, I have got threats from Otunba Gbenga Daniel to withdraw from the case or risk bad things happening to my life. I do not want to waste my life in the course of running the party and I put the blame at you, my National Chairman for your inconsistency.

“In view of this confusion to my life by Gbenga Daniel through Otunba Olumide Osunsina, I accept responsibilities and events that led to the current crisis in Ogun Labour Party”.

Mr. Daniel, who recently defected to LP, has not yet reacted to the allegations against him.
