P.M.NEWS gathered that Tokyo refused to turn up because he has lost confidence in the  police authorities in Oyo State, and that he might either be killed or put in perpetual  custody.

He once accused Bolanta of conspiracy with the Oyo State Governor Adebayo Alao-Akala to  incriminate him with the aim of eliminating him, saying that all what is happening in Oyo  State is as a result of the desperation of Akala to run for a second term.

Effort to reach the commissioner proved abortive as he was holding a weekly security  meeting with his men.
