Ekiti PDP Chieftain Chides Fayemi Over Call For Police CP, MOPOL Commander's Removal
A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State, Mr Lati Ajijola has described call by the State Governor, Kayode Fayemi that the State Commissioner of Police, Mr Felix Uyanna and Commander of Police Mobile Force in Ado-Ekiti, Gabriel Selenkere be removed as self-serving and hypocritical, accusing the governor of being behind wanton political killings in the State.
Ajilola, who said Governor Fayemi should be held responsible for the last Sunday killing of one Taiwo Akinola in Ado-Ekiti, added that; "Calling the removal of the Police chiefs for a crime committed by All Progressives Congress (APC) thugs is a deceit carried too far by Fayemi and his party."
In a release issued today and made available to journalists in Ado-Ekiti, Mr Ajijola said all lovers of peace in Nigeria must beg Governor Fayemi and his thugs to allow peace to reign in Ekiti State before, during and after the June 21 governorship election.
He urged the Commissioner of Police in the state to remain focused on making the forthcoming gubernatorial election peaceful, hitch-free and credible.
Ajijola, who described the death of Taiwo Akinola as unfortunate, added that it was deceitful for Governor Fayemi and his APC people to have claimed that the deceased was a member of the APC.
He said "the fact of the matter is that those APC thugs killed Taiwo. They tried to cover their crime by covering his corpse with Fayemi's campaign vest. But their deceit failed because someone had already taken the picture of Taiwo's corpse before they covered him with APC vest and the Okada man that carried Taiwo is alive and helping the police with their investigation.
"One would have expected Governor Fayemi to have listened to the Police Commissioner, who advised him not to come to the scene of the rampage but because he was desperate to provide security cover for his thugs that were unleashing mayhem on innocent Ado-Ekiti residents, he ignored the warning.
"Therefore, Fayemi can afford to run to anywhere to seek the removal of police chiefs that only did their jobs, no reasonable person will take him serious."
