Ondo State Governor, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu on Tuesday sacked Mr Allen Sowore, Special Assistant on New Media to the embattled Deputy Governor of the state, Mr Agboola Ajayi.

Akeredolu announced the sack of Sowore in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Olusegun Ajiboye.
Ajayi had maintained that he remains the Deputy Governor of the state despite his resignation from the All Progressives Congress.
Governor Akeredolu directed Sowore to submit all government’s property in his possession to his Chief of Staff with immediate effect.
