The Osun State Government has directed former appointed officials to return government properties in their possession within 48 hours.

The spokesperson for Governor Ademola Adeleke, Olawale Rasheed, in a statement on Wednesday, said the directive was sequel to “large scale diversion of government assets by top officials of the immediate past administration” of Gboyega Oyetola.

“Several official vehicles are missing while official records indicated that two third of former state officials left with fleet of car in their office.

Most Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) were stripped of operational assets like vehicles, computers and even residential fittings. Residences of some top officials were equally pillaged even to lamp fitting,” the statement added.

Rasheed noted that any former official who refuse to comply with the directive will face the full weight of the law.


Adeleke, who was sworn in on Sunday froze all government accounts and also reversed the state’s name from the State of Osun to Osun State.

He also suspended three monarchs and the chairman of the Osun electoral commission.
