Listen to article

The Ekiti State government has described as “unscrupulous ” faceless people who carry out attacks  on  innocent residents of the State, claiming that Governor Ayodele Fayose sent them.

Spokesman, Lere Olayinka,  in a statement said “yesterday, Friday, July 31, one Prince Bunmi Ademolaju was attacked at a popular hotel in Ado-Ekiti. Those who attacked him were said to have shouted that they were Governor Fayose's boys.”

“We have it on good authority that the plot of these unscrupulous elements is to go about attacking notable indigenes of Ekiti State and claiming that they were sent by Governor Fayose.” He said

According to him “This new trend, we believe is another plot by those who have lost every war they wagged against Governor Fayose to discredit the governor, and the public is hereby placed on alert. By announcing that they were Governor Fayose's boys, the motive of the criminals has no doubt been exposed, and it cannot be anything other than to set the people against the governor.”

Olayinka added ” We therefore wish to state categorically that Governor Fayose does not harbour criminals. He does not have boys anywhere, not to talk of sending them to attack innocent residents of Ekiti State. Anyone caught attacking or assaulting residents of Ekiti State in the name of “Governor Fayose's Boys” should be apprehended and handed over to law enforcement agents for appropriate action.”
