Ajayi insisted that there were only two vehicles in his possession.
He agreed to return the two vehicles for peace to reign.
However, the state government insisted that here were four vehicles with him and he should return the remaining two.
According to a statement issued by the Senior Special Assistant to the State Governor on Special Duties and Strategy, Dr Doyin Odebowale, the former deputy governor must be ready to face the consequence.
The statement further revealed that the four vehicles belonging to the government with Mr Ajayi are a Toyota Land Cruiser SUV (new), two Hilux vans (new) and Toyota Hilux (fairly used).
Odebowale said, “It is laughable to read from Mr Ajayi that he has chosen to return two vehicles as an act of magnanimity.
“Returning properties converted is not an act of sacrifice or statesmanship. The alternative will be to confront a gruelling criminal trial for stealing.”
While saying that the former deputy governor should not have left office with government’s vehicles, he added “Mr Ajayi should do the needful or be ready for the consequences.”
