The chairman of the Action Democratic Party, in Oyo State, Chief Folaranmi Owolabi has been suspended. His letter of suspension was signed last night by one Lati Arowosaye, who is said to be the national vice chairman, South-West, of the party at ‘11.35pm’.
Investigations however revealed that Folaranmi may have defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress. Sources close to Folaranmi, alleged that the party has known no peace since former governor Alao-Akala, who is the party’s governorship candidate, and some other ‘powerful’ people joined the party.
Folaranmi could not be reached for reaction as at the time of filing this report.
