Wife of the Deputy Governor of Osun State, Mr Benedict Gboyega Alabi, Titilayo has been arrested in Lagos over fraud allegations.

Titilayo was said to have been arrested earlier this morning Thursday 19th December 2019 and currently cooling her buttocks with the authorities at the Special Fraud Unit (SFU), Ikoyi Lagos.

The fraud allegation is said to be related to about three million seven hundred thousand naira (N3,700,000) cost of furniture supplied to her apartment, which Mrs Titilayo Alabi claimed to be the guest house of her husband, the Deputy Governor of Osun State. 

The apartment is allegedly located in the higher-brow area of Opebi in Ikeja, Lagos.


However, we learnt owners of the furniture and interior decor company which is located on Allen Avenue Ikeja, had tried all their best possible to make the number two woman in Osun State pay her debt, but the woman had ignored all entreaties and plea for payment for the supplies made around September 2019. Mrs Alabi had reportedly told owners of the company that she would pay at her convenience and that nobody could touch her as the wife of a deputy governor.

Sources revealed that the law enforcement agents had been on the trail of the woman for some time now until she was eventually arrested on Thursday. Deputy Governor's wife, Titilayo Alabi arrested, detained in Lagos for fraud!

Titilayo has been married to Gboyega for about nine years and she has been very active in his political development.

Her husband, Benedict Olugboyega Alabi is the Group President/CEO of Eliezer Workplace Management Limited. 

He has interest in other areas like agriculture and manufacturing.

He has served on the Technical Committee of Federal Government of Nigeria on Development of Green Building Initiative for Nigeria as well as Committee on Establishment of Building Rating System. 

Both Initiatives of Federal Government of Nigeria are directed towards taming building collapse in Nigeria.

As a humanist and a man with love of the people in his heart, Olugboyega established Osun Ajose Foundation to support indigenes in Osun State. 

This is an empowerment foundation established with a view to eradicating poverty in the state.
