“The clothes and other personal effects seen inside the vehicle belonged to Tope’s wife (Bose) and his kid who are planning to return to Lagos after spending the Easter celebration in Akure.
“The claims that they found fetish items inside my son’s vehicle are tissues of lies.
“The piggy bank that was found inside his car belongs to his wife. It is not a casket as alleged.
“The clothes found inside his car were the ones belonging to his wife and child.
“My son has been a hustler since his childhood age. He had engaged in many menial jobs like bricklaying before he started the driving job.”
