The 19 All Progressives Congress lawmakers in Ekiti State House of Assembly have warned of plans by Governor Ayodele Fayose to attack them ahead of the April 11 governorship and House of Assembly elections in the state.

The lawmakers, who raised the alarm through the embattled Speaker, Dr. Adewale Omirin, said their fears were based on information from Government House sources, hinting on a plot to attack‎ them.

The Speaker, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Mr. Wole Olujobi, said the leaked report had already gone viral on social media,‎ adding that he would have ignored the information if not for a similar‎ experience they had shortly after the governor assumed office.

The statement said, “Our fear is not without foundation following similar experience we had when gunmen in black jeeps were visiting our homes at nights to attack us.

“Shortly before that, our party petitioned the Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba, and National Security Adviser, Col Sambo Dasuki, calling their attention to special request by Governor Fayose to the Police authorities to post back to Ekiti some of the policemen the governor used to attack his opponents between 2003 and 2006.

“Unfortunately, our petition was not treated‎. As a result, gunmen in unmarked black jeeps started visiting the homes of APC lawmakers at nights issuing threats to APC leaders and Assembly members”.

The lawmakers, who said Mr. Fayose should be held responsible if anything untoward happened to them, urged the Commissioner of Police, Taiwo Lakanu, to provide security for them as they could no longer take threats to their lives lightly.

“We can no longer take our security lightly as the governor has been boasting around that he would do anything to win all the 16 seats in the House of Assembly in the coming election”, the statement added.
