The speaker of the Ondo state house of assembly, Rt. Hon. Olamide Oladiji, has called on security agencies to come to his aid as his life is being threatened.

Oladiji, who mentioned that he has been receiving calls from strange numbers for over 3 days, said he had to come to the public after a fetish object was placed in front of his official lodge.

Oladiji, while addressing newsmen at his office, opined that the threats are connected to the impeachment proceedings commenced on the deputy governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa.

“I have been receiving strange calls since the day we began the impeachment notice but I didn’t count them as something serious.

“It was when I saw a strange object placed in front of my official lodge today that I had to raise the alarm.

“I believe the threat is connected to the deputy governor’s impeachment notice as they see me as the arrowhead.

“I am not alone on this as some members of the assembly are also receiving threats, especially members from Ilaje who have been threatened by some people not to come home to Ilaje.

While speaking on whether he is being pressured by external forces to act in a certain way, the speaker said “I am not under any pressure. Though some people are sending me messages to suppress me, we will do what is right under the law”.
