He held that the documents allegedly indicting him of the crime are photoshopped images, which according to him are weapons by his political opponents meant to blackmail him.

Egbedun said: “I declare that never in my past had I ever gotten arrested or interrogated or convicted by the FBI or any other law enforcement agency anywhere in the world. My business life now and in the past is legally compliant, devoid of criminality and in conformity with all legal regulations of countries where I have had legal dealings.

“The fake news is therefore the failed bid of frustrated political fraudsters who smell failure and who assume character assassination can rescue their sinking political boats.

“I have consequently instructed my lawyers to sue the faceless group and their operatives even as security agencies have been petitioned to arrest authors of the defamatory publications and anybody found to be sharing or disseminating such fake news.

“It is also germane for me to clarify that the Executive Governor of Osun State , Senator Ademola Adeleke is a leader of all who is busy with State governance and delivery of the Imole agenda. It is unfair and uncharitable to drag His Excellency to a legislative leadership matter which is an issue for the legislators-elect to decide.

“Democracy is a game of numbers. What is expected of players is to seek support of colleagues instead of embarking on impotent blackmail and emotional harassment. I apologize to His Excellency for the lack of maturity of some players who constituted themselves into a nuisance and a premature threat to the new era Osun people are currently enjoying.

“I assure leaders and members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun state that my records are clean and my antecedents are enviable. I am just a victim and a target of attacks by those incapable of accepting the will of God, the divine who enthrones and dethrones.”
