The Oyo state government has been thrown into confusion following the disappearance of N357million while it was being conveyed to some banks in the Ibadan, the state capital.

The money which was being moved out of the Oluyole residence of Governor Abiola Ajimobi and his wife Florence, was said to be stolen by unknown gunmen who attacked those who were transporting the money.

It was gathered that the money was moved out in a Toyota Hiace bus. They were going to deposit some of it in Access Bank and the other in Heritage Bank, but were attacked around Ring Road area of the state.

When the state police command was contacted, Olugbenga Fadeyi, spokesman of the Police in Oyo State, said he wasn’t aware of any robbery incident as no such official report had been made.

“It is possible that there was a robbery but if no official report was made, we won’t know,” he said.
