Pandemonium broke out this morning at the Ondo State Ministry of Justice after the dissolution of the State Executive Council by Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa.
According to eyewitness reports and a video shared by lawyer T.D Esq, angry civil servants besieged the office of the now former Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Charles Titiloye, to attack him.

The workers were reportedly livid over the impunity and highhandedness displayed by political appointees who lead them despite having less work experience.
Personnel from the Ondo State Police Command have, however, arrived at the Ministry to rescue Titiloye from the mob. But tensions remain high as the workers vent their frustrations at the former Exco members.
At the time of filing the report, TheNigerianLawyer is yet to ascertain the specific reason behind the civil servants’ pursuit of the former Attorney General.
