The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Southwest has given the Director General of the State Security Service (SSS), Inspector General of Police (IGP) and the minister of Police Affairs seven days ultimatum to arrest the Special Assistant to Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi on Internal Security, Deji Adesokan (Jaruu), and others for disrupting a youths programme in Ado-Ekiti last Saturday. The PDP, which warned the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and Governor Fayemi of the dire consequences of their attack on members of opposition parties, especially the PDP said; “the governor and his party should be mindful of violent reaction by the people if they are pushed to the wall.”
The party said in a statement issued today by its Zonal Publicity Secretary, Hon. Kayode Babade that; it was curious that inspite of the presence of armed policemen and men of the SSS at the venue of yesterday’s event, Fayemi’s thugs fired several gun shots and no one was arrested.
He said; “We are curious that even with the presence of armed policemen and men of the SSS, the youths programme was disrupted with several gunshots fired by the Jaruu-led thugs, and no one was arrested.
“We therefore give the Director General of SSS, IGP and the Minister of Police Affairs seven days to effect the arrest of Deji Adesokan and others, who invaded Irepodun Hotel, Ado-Ekiti, venue of the youths programme and disrupted the programme last Saturday.
“If this is not done, it can then be concluded that security agencies in Ekiti State have turned themselves to appendages of the Fayemi-led government?
“We will also conclude that security agencies in Ekiti State can no longer guarantee the people’s rights to freedom of association and assembly, and that the people should resort to self-help?
“This will be a direct invitation to anarchy because the PDP will no longer tolerate any attack, harassment or intimidation of our members.”
