Ekiti Shooting: Blame Ondo Gov,  Akeredolu, Fayemi For Return Of Bloodshed-PDP

The Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu and the All

Progressives Congress (APC)  governorship candidate,  Dr. Kayode

Fayemi invaded Ekiti State with armed policemen and thugs, throwing

the State that has been peaceful since the advent of Governor Ayodele

Fayose’s government into bloodshed.


Akeredolu led the All Progressives Congress (APC)  governorship

candidate,  Dr. Kayode Fayemi to Ekiti in a show of federal might and

in the process, seven people were hit by police bullets.


At the APC secretariat,  one of the mobile policeman, was said to  be

using his gun to push away the thugs brought from Ondo State and the

hoodlums in turn dragged the gun with him, leading to sporadic

shootings that left six persons shot.


One of those injured was Hon. Opeyemi Bamidele. Five others also had

gunshot injuries.


The APC thugs backed by armed policemen later went on rampage at

Ojumose area of Ado Ekiti, destroying the canopies and chairs in front

of the residence of late Prince Adegoke.


In a statement Kolapo Olusola Campaign Organisation (KOCO) said :”One of the Teargas cannisters fired by the policemen hit a Taxi

driver,  Odeyemi Olumide badly injuring him.  He is now receiving

treatment at the Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, alongside

five others who were shot at the APC secretariat.


As usual, the APC went to town with story that the policeman who

fired the shots at the party secretariat was fake.


However, information available to us is that the policeman was brought

from Ondo State by Governor Akeredolu.


Consequently, we challenge the Police authority to release the

identity of the police officer to the public and how he left Akure for

Ado Ekiti.


We also wish to alert the public of the possibility of the APC

shenanigans plotting to assassinate the policeman so as to sustain

their lie that he is fake.


We make bold to say that Governor Akeredolu of Ondo State and Dr

Fayemi must be held responsible for any breakdown of law and order in

Ekiti State.  We are aware of their mobilisation of thugs from Ondo

State to Ekiti for the July 14. The governor even reportedly boasted

that he was ready to spend two months allocation of Ondo State on

Fayemi’s election.


The first manifestation of Governor Akeredolu’s plot to ensure that

Ekiti is taken by force was the bloodshed witnessed in the State



Lastly,  let Governor Akeredolu and his stooge, Kayode Fayemi know

that Ekiti is not a state to be taken by force and annexed to Ondo

State by anyone,  our people will resist the APC agents of bloodshed.
