Gov. Fayose and Thugs who robs and kidnap at Night live in the Ekiti Government House - APC

The Ekiti State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has reacted to newspapers advertorials by the state governor, Ayodele Fayose, accusing President Muhammadu Buhari of being a dictator by allegedly sending Department of State Services operatives to invade the Akwa Ibom Government House, Uyo.

The party insisted that the operatives had not violated the nation’s law by moving against illegal arms dump, large enough to illegally topple a democratically elected government.

The party, in a statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, on Sunday, said the DSS operatives acted in the nation’s interest to check what would have been a threat to national stability and reversal of fortunes for the nation’s economy.

“Let us educate Fayose that a Government House is not the same as foreign embassies or missions that enjoy physical immunity from security activities by local armed forces.

“While a governor enjoys immunity from physical and body security search, the same cannot be said of the Government House because no law in the nation’s constitution says the Government House should be a breeding ground for insurrection and insurgency where state enemies can assemble arms to topple a legitimate government and we suspect Fayose as an accomplice in the arms stockpiling saga in the Akwa Ibom Government House, otherwise there is no reason for him to be edgy and agitated in his response,” Olatunbosun explained.

The party condemned Fayose for trying to whip public sentiment against DSS operatives for performing their legitimate duty to secure the country, adding that no amount of blackmail would stop security agents from performing their legal duties against violent and corrupt governors.
Olatubosun added: “We know why Fayose is blackmailing DSS in this matter. Ekiti Government House is home to thugs and criminal elements armed to the teeth that the governor has been using against the opposition.


“They were used on massive scale during the last elections to attack the opponents. As we speak, they are still lodged in the Government House where they take off at nights to rob and kidnap innocent Ekiti people.

“We never had this kind of experience for four years of Governor Kayode Fayemi until Fayose started his campaign with importation of criminals that have been stalking the state residents.


“We call on DSS to be alert to its responsibilities of maintaining internal cohesion and security integrity across the country and should comb everywhere, including the Aso Rock if need be, to ensure that no man in authority constitutes himself as a security risk to the nation’s unity.”
The statement further warned the people of Ekiti State to be wary of Fayose’s inciting statements meant to set them against the Federal Government
