Senator Tofowomo

The Senator representing Ondo-South Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Nicholas Tofowomo, has petitioned the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Akali, urging him to investigate and arrest an Ondo State-based lawyer, Akin Sowore, over alleged blackmail and malicious allegations against him.

AllNews recalls that Sowore had on September 2 petitioned the Alkali in national dailies and social media to arrest Senator Tofowomo over alleged ritual dealings with some youths in his constituency after inviting them to his residence for empowerment programne on June 21.

He had alleged that the senator hypnotised the youths, believed to be delegates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in order to keep them under oath for support and loyalty in the forthcoming senatorial primary.
Tofowomo has denied the allegation.

“The police should investigate the names of the youths in the purported meeting of the said empowerment programme, as well as the veracity and authenticity of the allegations.

“The police should also investigate and mandate the lawyer to provide video evidence of the malicious allegations.

“In the absence of all the proofs after thorough investigations, the culprit must be arrested and prosecuted under the law to be serve as a deterrent to others,” the petition read.
