The 19 All Progressives Congress lawmakers in Ekiti State House of Assembly have accused Governor Ayodele Fayose of plotting to kidnap them and members of their families.
According to the lawmakers, in a bid to stop them from going ahead with the impeachment plan, the governor’s thugs have been trailing their activities for some time.Read the statement below...
In a statement released by Speaker Adewale Omirin’s Special Adviser on Media, Wole Olujobi, the lawmakers wondered why a governor that claims to be seeking peace would be on their trail, planning to kidnap some of them or, in the alternative, seize their children for ransom.
“We note the surveillance activities of the governor by the accurate and inaccurate accounts of our movements as posted on the Facebook wall of his aide, Lere Olayinka.
“We can’t ignore the information by our usually reliable sources about this kidnap plan. The governor is capable of any evil. We have it on good authority that he is on our trail just to arrest some of us so that we don’t have the quorum for his impeachment.
“The alternative is to kidnap members of our family, particularly our children in their schools, by a faceless gang calling themselves a concerned Ekiti State non-political group to hide their political identity. They are to insist that the lawmakers must drop their impeachment plan or the children will be killed,” the statement stated.
Consequently, the lawmakers called the attention of security agents to the alleged plot, saying that their alarm should not be treated with levity.
