Tension has escalated in Osun State following the summoning of Olawale Rasheed, the spokesperson for Governor Ademola Adeleke, for questioning by the Department of State Services (DSS).

He was invited for allegedly sponsoring fake news against Femi, son of Minister of Marine and Blue Economy, Adegboyega Oyetola.

The Nation reports an Abuja-based blogger published a news report, claiming that Femi is extorting Directors of Ministry of Marine.

The blogger was arrested by operatives of DSS and she reportedly confessed Rasheed sponsored the report.

Rasheed, in a statement, denied giving any report to an online publisher on Oyetola’s son, noting that he will meet investigators this weekend.

But the Governor’s spokesman 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 the suit number FHC/OS/C5/89/2024, sought for three reliefs including restraining order on DSS from inviting, arresting or detaining him.
