Father of teenage girl, Melojuekun Barakat who accused Ogun Commissioner Abiodun Abudu-Balogun of sexual assault has withdrawn the case.

He also appealed to the Nigerian people and media, revealing he has no interest to sue the commissioner. He further revealed that what happened between his daughter and the commissioner was not only a misunderstanding but a misconception.

He concluded by thanking Nigerians for their support and love and pleaded they should also support his decision to withdraw the case.

Kemi Filani News recalls that the Commissioner for Environment, Abiodun Abudu-Balogun has been suspended by the Ogun state government for sexually molesting a 16years old girl, identified as Barakat Mayowa Melojuekun.

According to reports, Mr Abudu-Balogun was suspended on Sunday from office over an allegation of sexual harassment.
In a statement, the Secretary to the State Government, Mr Tokunbo Talabi, declared the suspension of the commissioner pending the conclusion of an independent investigation into the allegation.

“Whilst taking cognisance of the principle of a suspect being presumed innocent until proven guilty and the public statement issued by Honourable Abudu-Balogun denying the allegation, as a government with zero tolerance for gender-based violence and indeed any criminality, the suspension is a further demonstration of the commitment of Dapo Abiodun administration to fairness, equity, justice and the rule of law, no matter who is involved,” the statement read.
