APC Invades Ekiti With Policemen From Abuja To Arrest 11 Lawmakers

Armed policemen from Abuja have now invaded
Ekiti State to begin indiscriminate arrest of
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders, top
government officials and 11 members of the
State House of Assembly under funny allegation
of stockpiling arms during the June 21, 2014
governorship election.
The policemen were led by one CSP Mohammed
Abubakar of the Force Criminal Investigation
Department (CID), Abuja.
Special Assistant on Public Communications and
New Media, Lere Olayinka, who made this
known in a statement issued on Tuesday, said
the new plot was an aftermath of the failure of
the Department of State Services (DSS) to achieve
the plot of coercing the House of Assembly
members to impeach the Governor, Mr Ayodele
The government said the indiscriminate arrest
was to begin this night and that the policemen
arrived Ado Ekiti, the State capital with Mr TKO
Aluko and APC Chairman, Jide Awe today.
“We are aware of the arrival of policemen from
Abuja to Ekiti State with the intention of
arresting 11 members of the House of Assembly,
two PDP leaders per local government and some
other top officials of the government.
“Ridiculously, the offense for which the
policemen are to embark on this indiscriminate
arrest is owing to TKO Aluko malicious outburst
that those listed for arrest stockpiled arms
during the governorship election conducted in
Ekiti close to two years ago.
“This plot is in furtherance of the APC plot to
destabilize the government of Ekiti State just
because of Governor Fayose’s hard stance on
President Mohammadu Buhari’s APC
government policies”.
“The question is, what was the arms they
claimed were stockpiled used for? Was anyone
killed or attacked during the election?
“And why is the Police not arresting the APC
Chairman, Jide Awe who is wanted for alleged
murder and TKO Aluko, who was declared
wanted by the court for perjury, and instead
providing security cover for them?
“We therefore which to alert Nigerians on this
new plot and state that Ekiti people will resist
any attempt to use the Police to harass innocent
citizens of the State.
“Democratically, we are entitled to our views on
any issue in Nigeria and we won’t succumb to
intimidation and harassment from any agency of
the Federal government.”
