ALARM! Fayose supporters threatening to kill us –E-11 cries out
A socio-political group, Ekiti-11, says people loyal to the
Ekiti State Governor-elect, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, have been
sending death threats to its members for instituting a suit
which could thwart Fayose’s swearing-in on October 16.
In a statement by the group’s Chairman, Mr. Femi Ajiniran,
the group called on security agencies to bring the masterminds
of the threat telephone calls and messages to book.
He said the threat calls and messages persisted after another
attack was meted on a High Court judge, Justice John
He, therefore, provided phone numbers, which he said had
been used in calling some members of E-11 like Senator
Babafemi Ojudu, Mr. Femi Ajayi, Mr. Niyi Ajakaiye and
himself, among others.
He said, “The members got the threat calls and messages on
September 23 via 11 telephone lines,” adding that the group
was ready to furnish security agencies with the numbers of the
Ajiniran called on the Nigeria Police and State Security
Service to investigate those behind the threat calls and
messages, noting that the callers had issued death threats to
the members of E-11.
He said that they threatened to destroy their properties and
attack their family members if they did not withdraw the suit
However, Fayose described the allegations levelled against his
supporters as false.
The governor-elect’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Idowu
Adelusi, who spoke on his behalf, told our correspondent that
the E-11 was a group of unscrupulous individuals who put
their selfish interest ahead of the state.
He said, “The threats are a figment of their imagination. It is
another concocted lie and nobody in Ekiti is being deceived
by them. The E-11 are beneficiaries of Governor Kayode
Fayemi’s government, they are parasites and their role in the
mismanagement of the Fountain Hotel will be probed when
we take over.”
