The SOS letter of Dr. Kayode Fayemi to the Commissioner of Police Ekiti State over the attack on his convoy by PDP thugs on April 13, 2010.  

April 14, 2010

The Commissioner of Police,
Ekiti State Police Command,
Ado Ekiti.

Dear Sir,

      SOS on the Activities of Ekiti PDP Thugs and their Attack on me and AC Supporters

I wish to commend your efforts in ensuring peace in Ekiti State. This is despite the challenges that your command is currently facing through the incessant breaches by supposed constitutionally ascribed security officer, who wishes to paint security apparatus with a tar of partisanship.

I am aware that you are abreast with the ongoing election petition at the Tribunal in Ado Ekiti. A major phase was concluded yesterday April 13, 2010, with the adoption of addresses by me, the petitioner and the respondents to my petition.

Earlier before this historic day, I have been inundated with reports that the PDP and its government in Ekiti State had hatched a plot to attack me and my supporters at the High Court premises, the venue of the tribunal.

This information, I reliably gathered was also passed to you through the Criminal Investigation Bureau, who has one of its officers with me, as Security Detail.

The plot is to cause a maximum breach of public peace, sack my campaign office and AC party secretariat both located close to each other at Ajilosun street, Ado Ekiti, attack me and other Action Congress leaders across the state.

The major result desired from these breaches is to force a State of Emergency on the State, so that all Tribunal proceedings would be stalled.

Currently, the State PDP leaders with their State Government officials are holding nocturnal meetings to hatch a plot to unleash mayhem on my Isan Ekiti home, particularly between April 17 and 19, 2010 since my family is dedicating a church there in memory of our late father, Pa Francis Fayemi.

The PDP had once made a failed attempt on my Isan Ekiti home and succeeded in attacking our Oba’s Palace, and burnt down valuables including crowns and antiquities.

I am aware of the various meetings going on in Oye Ekiti, Ifaki Ekiti, Ikere Ekiti and regrettably the government house where there had been a decision to arrange for fake policemen who will arrest AC supporters at home and public places in Ado Ekiti and whisk them to unknown destinations for maiming.

The office of Mrs. Tosin Aluko, Ado Ekiti Local Government Area Chairman is daily hosting the leaders of cultists from University of Ado Ekiti, Esa Oke College of Technology, Federal Polytechnic Offa and Ambros Alli University, Ekpoma.

These apart from the retinue of cultists headed by one Marshal who is an unofficial Personal Assistant to Dr. Sikiru Lawal, the State Deputy Governor.

My party and I had made several reports on the activities of these miscreants who among them are Mr. Bunmi Ojo, Mr.Segun Oni’s Personal Assistant, who led yesterday’s mayhem against me and several AC members who were wounded.

Before the Gubernatorial Re-run Election in 2009, I had petitioned the Inspector General of Police and the National Security Officer (copies of which are in your office) on the activities of Mr. Bunmi Ojo, Mr. Femi Olarewaju a.k.a Ijakoko, Blessing Esan, Basiru Ajagbemokeferi, Marshal, Shola Ojo, Agboola Oni, Ojo Asela, Benson Fanimiye, Femi Fatokun, Niyi Fatokun a.k.a Concord and OPC members in Mr. Segun Oni’s convoy led by one Sunday Ademakinwa.

This gang of thugs had rained unrest on Ekiti and we had raised the alarm severally; we did so when Ahmed Sadiq was murdered on March 10, 2009 in Oye in front of Senator Ayo Arise’s house.

Despite our SOS pleas to security agencies, these known thugs are walking the streets freely without being invited once for questioning.

The latest dastardly act of these political urchins was due to the immunity conferred on them by the Chief Security Officer of the State who uses them as pliable tools to silence perceived opponents.

I wish to inform further that there is a grand plan to attack me, my party leaders and members on the day the Tribunal will sit for ruling on the Election Petition. There is equally a palpable fear among my supporters due to the boasts of these aforementioned PDP notorious thugs who had promised to maim them before and during the expected Tribunal ruling.

I therefore pray your authority to invigorate the security of the State since the supposed Chief Security Officer heads the gang that undermines the security of the State.
That all the aforementioned thugs be apprehended and quizzed by security agents.
That adequate security be provided at Isan Ekiti, venue of my family’s church dedication between April 17 and 19, 2010.

That security be strengthened around the AC party secretariat, my campaign office all in Ado Ekiti and my country home in Isan Ekiti.
I once again wish to pledge my support for your efforts in ensuring an unfettered peace and security for Ekiti State.

I am yours in the service to our fatherland. 

Dr. Kayode Fayemi


National Security Adviser
Inspector General of Police
Ekiti State Director of SSS
