Hon. Akanni’s issue was put on the front burner after the Ekiti State Government raised an alarm that he had died in the custody of the DSS, which turned out to be false.

However before the controversial lawmaker hit the headlines, and even joined politics about two years ago, he was a lay about living off his younger brother, Gbenga Akanni, a socialite and one of Fuji star Wasiu Ayinde’s patrons, Orijoreporter has gathered.

Gbenga Akanni, who is said to be a crooked businessman, is a long time friend of Ekiti State governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, and would have been positioned to run for election in the state by Gov. Fayose but for public knowledge of his shady business activities.

Impeccable sources told OrijoReporter that Gbenga can neither read nor write or speak a word of English. His best attempt at speaking English is “leave story”.

His elder brother, Hon. Afolabi fondly known as Afo, who Gov. Fayose anointed in his stead like his younger brother is a stark illiterate, OrijoReporter was told.

His level of illiteracy surprised the Department of State Services (DSS) to the point that the security service commenced investigation into academic qualifications of some members of the Ekiti State House of Assembly and political appointees.

That Hon. Afolabi’s sister, Biola Oyedepo (nee Akanni) popularly known as Iya Ko fo si( a mother that hates poverty) is married to popularly fraudster turned politician, Olabode Oyedepo (aka Bode de Way) is another dirty secret of the controversial lawmaker.

Known for bleaching his skin, and loafing around, Hon. Afolabi Akanni was a regular visitor at socialite Femi Akinsami’s City View Hotel located at Oregun, in Ikeja until his recent election into Ekiti State House of Assembly.
