The wife of Oyo State Governor, Mrs. Florence Ajimobi, yesterday arrived in Lagos and debunked reports that she was arrested by the London Metropolitan Police for money laundering offence. She attributed the allegation of money laundering to the handiwork of mischief makers who she said were playing dirty politics to tarnish her reputation, which she has kept as the wife of a politician in her marriage of over 30 years. On arrival from London yesterday morning at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos aboard a Virgin Atlantic Airways aircraft, which landed at 6.50 a.m., she described as laughable the rumour of her arrest, affirming that she only travelled last Sunday to London to accompany her child back to school. Ajimobi said she was not surprised over the capacity of people to peddle rumour, as part of the dirty politics of Oyo, saying that the true test of any human being is the ability to stand firm in times of crisis and controversy. According to her, “I am here live as you can see, I have never had any encounter with the London Metropolitan Police, and I know I will never have. It is just rumour like you said, and I think the time has come for us in Nigeria to stop playing dirty politics”:
