Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has written the Inspector

General of Police, Mr Solomon Arase, calling for his intervention to

stem the spate of kidnappings that has hit the state in the last few

In the letter dated May 15, 2015 and personally signed by the

governor, he said the IG’s special intervention would help in removing

the fear the people of the state were experiencing following cases of

abductions of innocent people.
In a statement in Ado-Ekiti on Friday by his Chief Press Secretary,

Mr Idowu, Adelusi, the governor also allayed the fear of the people,

saying the situation would soon be put under control.

The letter, which was sent to be delivered by road to the IG in

Abuja, was also copied other security chiefs.
“It is with great concern that I am appealing to you to help in our

quest for a lasting solution to the spate of kidnappings and

abductions in our dear state. The development has created fear in the

minds of our people and no meaningful development can take place under

such atmosphere.
“As a responsible government, we are taking all necessary steps to

curtail and put an end to these dastardly acts, and we believe a

special attention from your office on the matter to our state would no

doubt, lead to finding a quick solution to the problem,” the letter

read in part.
There have been instances of the police authorities paying special

attention to any part of the country whenever the need arises.

Only recently, Arase sent a special team of policemen to Edo State to

help in curbing the outbreak of cult war among various groups in the

The intervention has paid off, with no new case of gang war being

reported in the last few days.
