For his continued romance with former chairman of Oyo state National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Mr. Lateef  Akinsola, former Senate Leader, Senator Teslim Folarin has been quizzed by the Oyo State Police Command.

According to a petition to the Police, Mr. Folarin and former chairman of the state National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Mr. Lateef Akinsola (a.k.a. Tokyo) were planning to disrupt the peace of the state.

Speaking with Journalists after spending three hours with the Police, Mr. Folarin said the invitation by the police was  politically motivated.

He explained that his relationship with Tokyo was purely not political but based on the fact that they are from Ibadan.

"Let us take it cool as politicians after all, 2015 is still far away. Power comes from God. I know this has political undertone. It could have come from anywhere not only from the ruling Action Congress of Nigeria but also my party; the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as well, he said.

"Let us take it cool as politicians after all, 2015 is still far away. Power comes from God. I know this has political undertone. It could have come from anywhere not only from the ruling Action Congress of Nigeria but also my party; the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as well"

"I am still bereaved because I am mourning my only elder blood brother. How would I have thought or caused breach of the peace in my darling state? Everybody knows I am non-violent person. I am an easy going and my type of politics is always issues-based. And coincidentally, the ACP who quizzed me is my neighbour and I asked him have you ever seen me harbouring thugs or fomenting trouble with anybody in our area?

He insisted that it was all part of the build up to the 2015 election.

Earlier, the residences at Iyaganku and Oluyole areas of the city  had been searched by armed policemen.

Upon his release, Mr. Folarin had intimated newsmen that he is on his way to Abeokuta to commiserate with ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo over the fire that gutted his Hilltop residence when he got a call from the police boss asking him to report at the station over a petition bordering on security.

The former Senate leader added he was in company of Mr. Lekan Balogun,  Deputy Senate whip, Mr. Hosea Ayoola Agboola, former Deputy-Governor of the state, Mr. Azeem Gbolarumi and Chairman, House of Representatives committee on Petroleum, Mrs. Muraina Ajibola, PDP Chairman in the state, Mr. Yinka Taiwo when he got the call.
