Adedayo was impeached less than two weeks ago after he had earlier been suspended following the allegation against the governor.
The former Chairman was also invited and detained by the Ogun State Command of the Department of the State Services, DSS, on the same allegation, for some days before he was released.
Adedayo had in a latter written to a former governor of Ogun State and the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief Olusegun Osoba, alleged that the local governments in the state were running on zero allocation.
He also petitioned the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission, ICPC.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in Ogun State, SP Omolola Odutola, said she wasn’t aware of the arrest, promising to get back as soon as she is briefed.
