A group, Society for Women Empowerment (SWE) in Ondo state, on Saturday berated the Deputy governor of Ondo State, Hon. Lucky Aiyedatiwa, over domestic violence, alleging him of allegedly beating his wife, Oluwaseun Aiyedatiwa.
This was contained in a statement by the group’s National Coordinator, Mrs Damilola Charles, who accused Ayedatiwa of beating his wife repeatedly on several occasions in the presence of his aides, staff and friends.
According to the group, wife beating is a civil rights problem of enormous magnitude, and said that the campaign on violence against women must be applicable and extended to elected officers in the country.
But while reacting, the Deputy Chief Press Secretary to Ayedatiwa, Mr. Kenneth Odusola, denied having knowledge of any domestic violence between his boss and his wife.
He however said “there is no reaction. Family matters should be left for family matters. That is not for your own consumption so I don’t know about it.
“I don’t look at family matters, so I don’t know about any domestic violence. Whoever may have talked to you or given you information should go and get his facts and not from me because I am not employed by a family and I don’t get involved”
But the group maintained in the statement that: “We have taken our time to investigate and confirm the allegations of domestic violence between the deputy governor of Ondo State, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, and his wife, Oluwaseun Aiyedatiwa.
“Rumour mills are abuzz about the condemnable act of the deputy governor. We indeed, have it on good authority that the deputy governor has physically assaulted his wife twice in the last four months.
“It is unacceptable that a deputy governor would physically assault his wife and inflicted grievous bodily”.
