Killings during Ekiti Assembly bye-election is state-sponsored terrorism – Fayose
Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has accused the All Progressive Congress (APC) led state government of being responsible for the killings during the Ekiti Assembly bye-election.
Fayose described the killings as “clear evidence of state-sponsored terrorism against her own citizens, who have rejected the party in government.”
He said it was barbaric and shameful that the state had to result to killing of innocent citizens just because of a five wards House of Assembly bye-election.
Fayose said “I thought we have gone past this barbarism in Ekiti State especially when we are confronted with national insecurity to which the government have no solution.
“What was witnessed today in Omuo Ekiti is nothing but terrorism against the people of Ekiti, knowing that time has caught up with them and they are no longer popular.
“This will remain guilt in the conscience of the perpetrators and their sponsors perpetually for killing their own people just because of a mere House of Assembly bye-election.
“Most importantly, everything that goes round in life comes round. The perpetrators of this despicable act should therefore remember that there will be consequences for all actions because the blood of the dead will surely speak and fight back.
“To the police in Ekiti, they know what to do and the people behind all these, if only they chose not to look away. Ekiti shall be free again if we collectively confront and win this battle against fake apostles of democracy.”
WITHIN NIGERIA recall that political thugs allegedly sponsored by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) unleashed mayhem on voters and security agents.
It was learnt that three persons including a policewoman lost their lives.
The attack happened three hours into the poll at Ward 7, Unit 7 of the Senator representing Ekiti South, Biodun Olujimi. The senator only escaped by whiskers as the political thugs went on rampage in her polling units.
