Ekiti: Dankwambo condemns attack on Fayose, deployment of 30,000 policemen

Gombe State Governor, Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo has described the attack on Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose as shameful and undemocratic.

Dankwambo’s statement followed manhandling of some supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, including the Governor of the State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose in Ado-Ekiti, the State capital, allegedly by security operatives on Wednesday.

DAILY POST earlier reported that Fayose was teargassed by the policemen who laid siege at the Government House and was now receiving treatment at the Government House’s clinic.

Reacting to the development, which has been widely condemned, Dankwambo said the attempt by APC to rig Saturday’s election will be resisted.

He noted that there would be no need for deployment of 300,000 policemen if public institutions were independent.

Dankwambo on his official Twitter page wrote “Just got off the phone with my brother, Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State. He has briefed me on the ongoing harassment by security operatives. What is happening in Ekiti state is shameful and undemocratic.

“The attempt by the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress to subvert the will of the people on Saturday in Ekiti will be resisted.

“If we strengthen our public institutions to be effective and independent, we won’t be needing 30,000 Police Officers and 4,000 soldiers to ensure a free, fair and credible election.”
