The Officers of the Ekiti State Police Command have beefed up security network in various parts of the state following the impeachment threat by the 19 All Progressive Congress, APC, lawmakers against the state governor, Mr. Ayo Fayose.
The state police commissioner, Mr. Taiwo Lakanu, disclosed to newsmen that the command has put up a 24-hour surveillance around Ado Ekiti, the state capital particularly the state House of Assembly.
His words “Security personnel have been placed on alert while high visibility patrol is being conducted around Ado Ekiti. We know the tension generated must have caused some apprehension, but we are being proactive because the security of lives and property and general peace of the people is our topmost priority. We are leaving no stone unturned to ensure safety of our citizens and for everybody to go about their normal business without fear or harassment.”
It would be recalled, 19 APC lawmakers had served notice of gross misconduct against Governor Ayodele Fayose, but the governor claimed ignorance over the letter, describing the APC lawmakers as jokers.
