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.
He said; “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.”
