Fayose: Policemen Want to Invade Ekiti for Mass Arrest

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has raised the alarm over an alleged plot by the Police to carry out mass arrest in the state on Monday.
The Governor said on Sunday that the Police have begun indiscriminate arrest of top officials of the government, leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as well as members of the State House of Assembly.
The mass arrest, which he said would begin on Monday, according to him, is based on petitions alleged to have been written against him by the All Progressives Congress (APC) over governorship election conducted in the state in 2014.
The Governor alleged that the 20 Policemen to be led by one ACP Olusola Oke, a native of Isan Ekiti, hometown of the Minister of Solid Minerals, Dr Kayode Fayemi were already in Alagbon, Lagos ready to move to Ekiti by 9am on Sunday in three white coloured Toyota Hummer buses.
In a statement issued by the Special Assistant to the State Governor on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, he alleged that APC leaders like Femi Falana (SAN), Senator Babafemi Ojudu, Yinka Akerele and others were coordinating the invasion in their desperation to destabilise the State because of Governor Ayodele Fayose’s perceived opposition to the inhuman policies of the federal government.
“We have been reliably informed that the latest onslaught against the PDP government of Mr Ayodele Fayose is to begin on Monday, using the police to arrest top government officials, PDP leaders across the 16 local government areas and members of the House of Assembly.
“ACP Olusola Oke, who is to lead the over 20 policemen to carry out the operation is said to be a native of Isan Ekiti, hometown of the Minister of Solid Minerals, Dr Kayode Fayemi. ACP Olusola Oke is equally the immediate past Assistant Commissioner in charge of Operations and now the AC X-Squad, FCID, Abuja.
“The operation is allegedly being funded by a former governor from the South South while a prominent aide of President Mohammadu Buhari is said to be directly coordinating.
“ACP Olusola Oke will be accompanied by CSP Ayodele, CSP Enang, four Inspectors and others,” the statement read.
