Mr. Tayo Ayinde, the Chief of Staff (CoS) to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has been summoned alongside others over the whereabouts of three helicopters belonging to the government.
Others summoned include: Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget Mr. Sam Egube, Commissioner for Special Duties Mr. Tayo Bamgbose-Martins and management of the Lagos State Security Trust Fund (LSSTF).
According to Chief Whip Mojisola Miranda,
“If you may recall, in 2007, the Assembly passed a bill for the establishment of the Lagos State Security Trust Fund (LSSTF) for the government to equip and strengthen security agencies. “In 2015, three helicopters were bought under former Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to strengthen security. But the helicopters are nowhere to be found now.
“I want us to look at it and get the concerned parties to tell the House the location of the helicopters, to see if they are just lying fallow or if the state government has entered into an agreement with an entity on the equipment and see to what extent the agreement has been working,”
Speaker Mudashiru Obasa said the helicopters were meant for dual purposes, noting that they were meant to be used for security and commercial purposes.
He said the House should try to know what had accrued to the state from the helicopters, adding: “This is the first time the Assembly will be talking about the equipment.”
