Pay attention to insecurity in Ekiti, group begs Fayemi’s wife


Mrs Bisi Fayemi, governor’s wife

Kidnappers have taken over Ekiti, group cries out to governor’s wife

By Valentine Amanze

A group in Ekiti State, the Ekiti Democratic Coalition (EDC), has appealed to the wife of the state Governor, Mrs Bisi Fayemi, to save residents of the state from kidnappers, who have turned most parts of Ekiti to their operational base.

The group said that it was directing its plea to Governor Kayode Fayemi’s wife because it was obvious that she was in charge of government, and not her husband.

In a statement issued on Monday and signed by its Coordinator, Comrade Ogunlola Olatunde, EDC said that just the way she singlehandedly picked a governorship candidate for the APC, Fayemi’s wife should solve the insecurity problem in Ekiti too.

The group, which described Mrs Fayemi as the “Ekiti sitting governor” and her husband as the “diaspora and traveling governor,” appealed to Mrs Fayemi to have mercy on residents of Ekiti State that were being kidnapped and killed daily by bandits.

It stated, “Just yesterday, a staunch member of APC, a former Chairman of Ilejemeje Local Government, Omooba Bamidele Adegoroye, was kidnapped alongside one of his boys along Iludun – Isan Ekiti road.

“Also last week, two people were killed along Orin/Ora – Ido Ekiti road with many others abducted.”

Lamenting the government’s nonchalant attitude to insecurity in the State, EDC stated that it was strange that bandits had taken over the roads to Fayemi’s hometown, Isan Ekiti, Itapaji/Iyemero axis in Ikole Local Government Area and Orin/Ora/Ido Ekiti and Ewu/Ayetoro Ekiti axis in Ido/Osi Local Government Area as well as other areas.

“As a matter of fact, since this administration began in 2018, hardly does a month go by without reports of  people being abducted. We are begging our “Madam Governor” to please, do something.”
