Former deputy governor of Lagos State Sinatu Ojikutu has said that the genesis of her problem with President-elect Bola Tinubu was when she was made a commissioner representing Lagos State at the Federal Character Commission, alleging that her husband was poisoned because of it.
Ojikutu stated this in an interview with PUNCH published on Saturday.
“My husband was poisoned by the food he took at a club. I warned him when he was relating with people who were Tinubu’s beneficiaries and he was always saying Lagos deserved better in terms of the management of the office (of the governor),” she said.
“Even Tinubu challenged him at the VIP lounge (of the club), telling him that he understood why he (my husband) was abusing him and he (my husband) said he never abused him but told Tinubu that the resources of the state could be better managed.”
Ojikutu said she knew her husband was poisoned because those he used to party with refused to attend his funeral.
“I knew he was poisoned because when we were having his funeral, the people he used to enjoy himself with at the club refused to attend his funeral and they warned that whosoever came to the funeral would be in for it,” she said.
