From Priscilla Ediare, Ado-Ekiti
Former Governor of Ekiti State Ayodele Fayose has described the killings in Omuo-Ekiti during the House of Assembly by-election in Ekiti East constituency I on Saturday by suspected thugs allegedly sponsored by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as ‘clear evidence of state-sponsored terrorism against her own citizens who have rejected the party in government.’
The ex-governor said the killings of innocent people just because of a five-ward House of Assembly by-election was barbaric and shameful.
‘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,’ ex-Governor Fayose said.
‘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 by-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,’ Fayose stated.
