Ekiti govt alleges plot by DSS to arrest Fayose
Ekiti State government has allaged that some members of the APC-led
Federal Government were conniving with the Department of State Service
(DSS) to implicate the state Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, and members of his cabinet in
treasonable offence, with a view to arresting them.
Special Assistant of the governor on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, stated this in Ado Ekiti.
He alleged that some miscreants were already slated to be arrested by
the DSS, after-which the DSS will claim that subversive materials were
found on them and that the arrested miscreants confessed that they were being sponsored by Governor Fayose.
The statement read: “Few hours ago, credible information was received as to the new plot by the APC-led federal government to rope the Ekiti
State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, into treasonable offence.
“This plot is being hatched with the active connivance of some top
functionaries of the DSS.
“Some miscreants are already slated to be arrested by the DSS, after which the DSS will claim that subversive materials were “found” on them and that the arrested miscreants confessed that they were
being sponsored by Governor Fayose to promote insurgency in the
country, with the ultimate aim of toppling the President Muhammadu
“The DSS will then move in, claiming to be acting on the confession of
the “arrested” miscreants and attempt to arrest Governor Fayose and some top functionaries of the Ekiti State government.
“Arrest of Governor Fayose will be premised on claim that the immunity being enjoyed by the governor does not cover treasonable offences.
“Nigerians should recall that Governor Fayose said last week
that he was aware of the various attempts on his life just because he chose to expose to Nigerians the state of health of President
“Let it be said to those behind this new sinister plot that, like their previous evil plots, this one too will fail.
“This is because Governor Fayose is only the voice of the hopeless
Nigerians, whose future is being mortgaged by the Buhari’s Presidency
cabal that are only interested in holding on to power at all cost.
“Governor Fayose will not be involved in any unlawful act and
Nigerians as well as the international community are placed on the alert as to this new plot.”
