There was rumpus in Osun State weekend after Olawale Rasheed, the spokesperson of the Osun State governor, Ademola Adeleke was invited for probe by the Department of State Service (DSS), for allegedly sponsoring fake news against Femi, son of Minister of Marine and Blue Economy, Adegboyega Oyetola.

The Nation recalled that an Abuja-based blogger published a news report, claiming that Femi was extorting directors of the Ministry of Marine. Subsequently, the blogger was arrested by operatives of DSS and she reportedly confessed that Rasheed sponsored the report.

Rasheed in a statement earlier the week denied the claim of giving any report to an online publisher on Oyetola’s son, noting that he would meet the investigators this weekend.

Meanwhile, in a recent development, the governor’s spokesman, Rasheed filed an originating summon for the enforcement of his rights before a Federal High Court, Osogbo against DSS and Femi Oyetola.

Adeleke’s spokesman in suit number FHC/OS/C5/89/2024 sought three reliefs which include: a restraining order on DSS from inviting, arresting, including or detaining him.
