However, THISDAY gathered that it took the combined effort of security operatives and the State Security Service (SSS) to save Amosun’s convoy from been attacked.
According to an eyewitness, who narrated the story, “When the garage boys demanded money from Senator Gbenga Kaka, he only gave them N800 which was not to their delight.
“The boys again approached Senator Kaka but he refused to give them a kobo, a development which nearly would have made the thugs to attack the former deputy governor of the state.”
When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr. Muyiwa Adejobi, confirmed the incident, and said 14 people had been arrested and are currently under intense
interrogation at the state Crimi-nal Investigation Department (CID).
