Fayose’s Staunch Supporter, Former Ekiti NURTW Chairman KilledCrime Watch, Featured, Latest News Friday, September 26th, 2014
Ekiti State Governor-Elect, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has raised the alarm over the desperation of leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to at all cost scuttle his inauguration by causing mayhem in the state that could lead to a declaration of a State of Emergency.
In a statement on Thursday night by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, in Ado-Ekiti, he said their act of desperation started manifesting with the assassination of a PDP member and staunch supporter of Fayose, Chief Omolafe Aderiye, by APC thugs in Ado-Ekiti on Thursday night.
Aderiye, a former Ekiti State Chairman of the. National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) was killed at the front of his office opposite Ijigbo Roundabout, Ado Ekiti at about 8.30pm on Thursday by three APC gun men wearing police uniform and bullet proof vest.
Aderiye had followed Fayose to the Tribunal sitting on Thursday.
“When we raised the alarm few days ago about the desperation of APC leaders and members to cause trouble in the state and that they are threatening our leaders and members, some people thought we were only making noise.
“Only on Monday, they tried to use the judiciary to steal the mandate freely given His Excellency,Dr Ayodele Fayose, by conniving with some heartless and conscienceless judicial officers. It was God who exposed their evil deeds.
“Now, they have assassinated Omolafe Aderiye, who was not only a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), but was the one who coordinated our security during the campaign for the June 21 governorship election which we won convincingly.
“We call on the Inspector General of Police, the Director General of the Department of State Security Service and all security agencies to fish out the killers of Aderiye.
“The APC and their evil collaborators must know that there is no hiding place for them. Their evil deeds will always be exposed. The good people of Ekiti State who freely gave Fayose the mandate to lead them by God’s grace for the next four years are ready to stand and ensure the actualisation of the mandate,” he said.
The CPS added that no amount of intimidation and harassment by the APC would deter the incoming PDP government from providing quality leadership for the people of the state.
