share on:

The police will on Wednesday (today) in Abuja arraign a serving commissioner in Ekiti State, Mr. Funminiyi Afuye, along with 11 others for terrorism charges, following an assault on the convoy of Governor Kayode Fayemi, in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, on June 8.

Afuye is the state Commissioner for Information.

The case, marked FHC/ABJ/CR/118/14, was filed before the Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday and was shortly after filing assigned to Justice Evoh Chukwu.

It was subsequently confirmed that the matter would come up for arraignment on Wednesday (today).

The police had on June 8 reportedly attacked the convoy of Fayemi following the disruption of a rally of members of the All Progressives Congress.

The alleged assault was said to have resulted in the death of one Peter Akin while many others sustained varying degrees of injury.

But the police on Tuesday, through a Deputy Superintendent of Police, Oloye Torugbene, of the Legal/Prosecution Section of the Force Headquarters in Abuja, who signed the charges, preferred three counts of terrorism acts against the accused persons.
