Hon Afolabi Akanni: DSS Apprehend Me Without A Warrant, Just To Impeach Fayose Hon Afolabi Akanni

A member of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, Hon Afolabi Akanni, who was arrested by men of the Department of State Se­curity (DSS) recently, has alleged that he was ar­rested to implicate Gov­ernor Ayodele Fayose.

Akanni, who arrived in Ekiti in the company of Governor Fayose, promised that his incar­ceration would further reinforce his loyalty to the governor.

Akanni representing Efon constituency was arrested on March 4 by DSS and had since been detained in Abuja until he was released on Tues­day after spending 18 days in the custody.

Another arrested state official and ex-special assistant on revenue to the governor, Mr Ropo Ogunjobi, was also in the state with Fayose.

Fayose, came in com­pany of the two ex-de­tainees aboard a chop­per marked 5N-BRL at about 3.38pm and landed at Christ’s School playing grounding Ado-Ekiti, where they were welcomed by mam­moth crowd, comprising members of the House of assembly, led by the Speaker, Hon Kola Olu­wawole.

Akanni, while ad­dressing the crowd said his arrest and detention had further fortified his loyalty for Fayose, de­scribing the governor as a reliable leader.

“What manner of de­mocracy are we practis­ing? How can the DSS invade a House of As­sembly and arrest a law­maker with the intention to impeaching a gover­nor? They even came without a warrant of ar­rest. Is this democracy?
