According to him: “Let me give you an example – when I came in, I looked at how some monies were spent and I believed it was Paris Club refund they moved, which was about N7 billion to N8 billion to OYSROMA.
“There is a company called Chinese Global. They said they are Chinese people but we know the people behind it. The company has been shut down as we speak.
“I asked the General Manager in charge of OYSROMA and said, look, your budget is N44 Million every month and, in a year, it is less than N500 million. Did you employ new people? He said no. Did you give out contracts? He said no. But how were you able to spend about N7 Billion in eleven months without employing new people?
“The money is in excess of N12 billion to N15 billion. Those who stole it are not Chinese but from Oyo State. “We know them, and very soon, wherever they have investment or property in the world, I will go after them and collect this money for our state”
