Ekiti State Governor Dr Kayode Fayemi has solicited for support of the Pan-Yoruba group, O’dua People’s Congress(OPC) and vigilante to rid the state of criminal element.
He solicited for their support especially in the rampaging kidnappers perpetrating heinous acts in the state .
Fayemi said though his government had given marching orders to the Police Commissioner, Mr Asuquo Amba and the Directorate of State Services(DSS) and other security networks to rid the state of criminals.
He insisted the backing of other stakeholders in security sector would provide a buffer to the conventional security for the task to be realised.
The governor spoke through his Senior Special Assistant on Mobilisation, Prince Tunji Ogunlola on Saturday while meeting the leadership of the group in the state, who paid him a visit at his office in Ado Ekiti.
Former Commissioner for Lands, Mr. Remi Olorunleke and the Director of Administration, Gbonyin Council area , Mr. David Jejelowo , were on Monday kidnapped along Ado-Ijan road .
This incident occurred barely a week an accountant with Emure local government, Mr. Abayomi Ajayi was killed by gunmen along Ikere –Ise road while two other staff from the council were abducted . Hopefully this will help too.
