(VIDEO) MAN ACCUSE ONDO CHIEF JUDGE OF ABUSE OF POWER AND INTIMIDATION, CRIES FOR HELP
A man has called out the Ondo State Chief Judge Olanrewaju Olutoyin Akeredolu, nee Fagboyegun for allegedly using the power of her position to intimidate and remand him for over 3 years, leaving him stranded in Nigeria and unable to return to his family abroad.
In a video that has gone viral, a man who identified himself as Olupelumi Fagboyegun claimed that he came to Nigeria three years ago and decided to visit his father’s house in Ondo State. Mr Fagboyegun said he was arrested at his father’s place and charged with forceful entry. The man said he has been on open remand for over three years.
A visibly frustrated looking Fagboyegun accused the present chief judge of the state who they share the same father, of being responsible for his predicament.
Fagboyegun claimed that in the span of three years, the judge in charge of his case has been changed five times, he has been re-arraigned me five times, and his changes have been changed five times. Yet, his case is still pending.
The single father called on the honourable Chief justice of Nigeria, Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad CFR, the Attorney General, Abubakar Malami, as well as President Muhammadu Buhari to please come to his aid.
Below is the transcript of his plea:
The honorable chief justice of the federal republic of Nigeria, the honourable attorney general of the federal republic of Nigeria, My name is Olupelumi Fagboyegun and I am calling you to please come to my rescue and rescue me from the Ondo state judiciary which is run like a family affair that if you don't know anybody, you can not get justice.

I have been living abroad for over 30 years. I came on holiday to my father's house, because I share the same father with the chief justice of Ondo state, I was arrested at my father's place, I was locked up, I was charged with forceful entry to my father's house.
Even if I was convicted of this crime, it only carries one-year penalty. One year prison penalty. But I have been on remand, open remand for the past 3years.
This case has been going on for 3 years because the chief justice of Ondo state is using her power to influence the judicial system and I've been unable to get justice. They have chant judges five times, they have re-arraigned me five times, they have changed their charges five times, and up to today that I am talking to you on the 15 February 2021, this case is still pending.
Please, come and rescue me. Help me, the Ondo state government cannot help me because the Ondo Government is a family business. Help me, I'm begging you. Buhari, help me from the hands of this woman. I want to go back to my family, I want to go back to my children. I am a single parent. This woman is keeping me here for the past 3 years for coming to my father's house. Please help me, I'm begging you people, I want to go back to my family
