Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, formal President Federal Republic of Nigeria, reportedly spent N1billion in a bid to resolve the crisis between Itele and Ayeyoro-Budo communities in the Ado Odo/Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State.
Obasanjo’s younger brother, Chief Abraham Akanle, mentioned this at a peace meeting held at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta.
Akanle, while representing Obasanjo at the meeting, claimed that the ex-president expended over N1bn to ensure peace in the communities, which have lasted for ages, claiming lives and properties.
Akanle also received six newly-installed village heads from the communities at the peace meeting.
“Imagine if the huge amount of money (N1bn) is distributed among the residents and indigenes, it would have brought greater development to the community. So, I urge you to continue to maintain peace.”
