Mr. Owoseni Ajayi, a former Commissioner for Justice in Ekiti state is demanding his legal fees from the outgoing Governor of the state, Ayodele Fayose.
Ajayi is claiming that the unpaid professional fee amounted to N600 million for legal services rendered in the past.
Ajayi, a close ally of Fayose before parting ways with him, listed 13 cases handled for the governor which had not been paid for.
In a letter, written to Fayose and made available to newsmen in Ado-Ekiti, Ajayi said: “You will recall that you never paid our chamber, Owoseni Ajayi & Associates for the services rendered throughout the time because of your financial incapacitation despite numerous demands because you were already out of office at the material time”.
“It should be stressed that we never acted free because we are legal practitioners working for fee”.
“We did not offer you pro bono service because you were not a pauper to be qualified for such a service”.
“We merely showed understanding up till now because of the prevalent circumstances known to you. And now that you have served another term as Governor of Ekiti State, you are financially strong enough to pay the said sum as demanded”.
