“I have taken time to reflect on what was the modus operandi in the past and I can say to you clearly that the state used to be supplied with medications that were just about to expire.

“They have brought some of them to me and, please, that era should be over and be over for good in Oyo State.”

Meanwhile, Governor Makinde has ordered the demolition of the massive structure housing illegal detainees at Ojoo axis of Ibadan, the state capital.

The governor made the pronouncement during a visit to the Olaoore Central Mosque, Ojoo, where over 200 detainees were released on Monday.

He also led a team of top government functionaries to the camp where the freed victims are being rehabilitated by the government.
