Nigerians in Diaspora Monitoring Group (NDMG) has asked the government of Ekiti State to tender an unreserved apology to the Department of State Services (DSS) for raising a false alarm that a member of the State House of Assembly, Mr Akanni Afolabi has been killed in the custody of the DSS.

In a statement by Comrade Philip Agbese, the NDMG said the campaign of dangerous rumour mongering spearheaded by the state governor, Ayo Fayose marked a new low in political irresponsibility and that politicians who rush to town with such unconfirmed stories are tarnishing Nigeria’s image both at home and abroad.

The DSS had to publicly present Afolabi, who is being detained over alleged breaches bordering on state security, to the media after rumours spread that he died in custody.

“In addition to the DSS, other security and intelligence agencies in the land should review events around this rumour, which was actively and knowingly spread, against earlier threats by Fayose that he can bring down the present federal government at will.

“While the Ekiti State governor enjoys immunity by virtue of his office, the other people that went down this path of infamy with him should be made to account for their action of maliciously trying to bring instability down on Nigeria.

“Even when Fayose cannot be arrested or tried alongside his minions, the government of Ekiti state must apologise to the DSS, Nigerians and the Federal Government for spreading falsehood targeted at diminishing our security agencies that are out to ensure every citizen is protected from bloodthirsty politicians who derive pleasure in abusing their privileges,” it demanded.

The NDMG however, urged the DSS to charge the accused person, Mr Akanni Afolabi, to court as soon as it concludes its investigation, which should be sped up, as human rights abuse is unacceptable.

  1. Fayose to apologize? He’s too dumb to realize the magnitude of his utterances. No problem, his immunity runs out soon and will answer to all his atrocities.
