11-year-old Dotun Tejuoso who is a son of Funmilayo Tejuoso, a member of Lagos State House of Assembly has expressed his displeasure over Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s order to lock their residence while their parent was out of the country. Mrs. Tejuoso was said to be on a legislative assignment sponsored by the Lagos state government while the seal order was given and her husband currently away in the United Kingdom.
Two of Mrs. Tejuoso’s children (Deto, female and Dotun, male) disclosed to SaharaReporters at how surprised they are on the process taken to enforce the sealing of their residence situated at 3A Sasegbon Street, GRA, Ikeja, Lagos. They said the order was baffling as it was done especially when their mother was sent out of the country by the same state government.
Deto Tejuoso revealed she was inside the house when the house was sealed and was not allowed to go outside. Not knowing how soon the house will be open, Deto said she had called necessary people to ensure the house is re-open as soon as it can.
Adedotun Tejuoso, 11, disclosed that he was afraid when he came back from school and
was denied entrance into the house. The young boy has been on his school uniform since no movement was allowed in and outside of the house.
“When I came back from school, I saw some policemen standing in front of our house, I asked what happened but they didn’t tell me why the house was locked. I feel extremely angry that I cannot go inside the house. I could not go inside to change my clothes.” Adedotun said.
Adedotun stated that he want the house to be open as soon as possible as his sister is currently confined in the house.
