Aare Afe Babalola Reacts To Omirin, APC Lawmakers Threat To Shun Tomorrow's Peace Meeting

...Here is what he told Omirin
By Lere Olayinka

I have just read message sent to SSS by you to the effect that you heard that Governor Ayodele Fayose and his people are celebrating and that you and your people would be arrested even before getting to me tomorrow for the peace meeting. Consequently, you advised your people to cancel the meeting.

Incidentally, the text message came when I was holding a meeting with the Commissioner of Police who had come all the way from Abuja to ensure that the peace meeting runs successfully.

The Commissioner of Police and the SSS assured you in clear and unambigous term that such allegation is not only untrue but totally unfounded.

They even assured that they have put in place over 200 police men to accompany you and your men to and fro Ado Ekiti.

They also assured you that the power of arrest rests solely with the police and that they undertake not to arrest you.

I have also undertaken to accompany the police to see you off the state after the meeting.

I still hope that you would have a rethink and come for the peace meeting to which I have invited eminent Ekiti citizens from far and wide.
