He stated that they had denied Lalong bail because the land documents were not original and the President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, then governor of Lagos State, that called Fashola, then Chief of staff and Osinbajo, then Attorney General of the of Lagos State to process land documents for Lalong’s bail.

However, Omatseye strongly believes that if Bola Ahmed Tinubu had not processed those documents, Lalong would not have been granted bail.

So, it was Asiwaju who invited Fashola and Osinbajo. Osinbajo was the Attorney General of Lagos State. Fashola was the Chief of Staff. He asked them to process land documents, and they did, to bail them out. They could not deny that land documents signed by the Lagos State government were authentic.”
