Ondo Deputy Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa strongly denies assaulting his wife after being alleged by the Women Empowerment group.
In response to the allegations made by a group called the Society for Women Empowerment, the Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Mr Lucky Aiyedatiwa, has vehemently denied the accusation of physically abusing his wife, Mrs Oluwaseun.
Through his media aide, Mr Kenneth Odusola, the deputy governor issued a statement emphasizing that he has never resorted to violence against his wife throughout their marriage.
Aiyedatiwa dismissed the claims made by the women’s group, referring to them as faceless. He asserted that the media reports suggesting his involvement in domestic abuse and assault on his wife were unfounded and completely untrue.
The statement read,” The said allegation of domestic abuse is a figment of the imagination of those behind it and their ungodly intentions to cause a crisis in the state had been known for weeks and therefore such falsehood did not come as a surprise.
“While His Excellency reserves the right to privacy on issues pertaining to his family, it is pertinent to state clearly that there has never been any domestic violence between the Deputy Governor and his lovely wife, Mrs Oluwaseun Aiyedatiwa, who at the moment is outside the shores of the country.
“It is not a secret that Mrs Oluwaseun Aiyedatiwa has lived and worked in the United Kingdom for many years before her husband became an elected public official in Nigeria and since then she has been shuttling between the United Kingdom and Nigeria to take care of the home and the children who are also in the United Kingdom.
“Therefore, any report of alleged domestic issues within the family should be taken as the handiwork of the enemies of the state who are bent on causing a crisis where there is none, and we therefore warn those spreading such falsehood to desist or face the consequences.”
