Kayode Fayemi


The Speaker of Ekiti State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Funminiyi Afuye has condemned the vandalization that occurred in Ikere Ekiti during Saturday’s Local Government polls resulting in killing of someone in the Constituency 1 of the town.

Afuye who spoke through his Special Adviser on Media, Akogun Tai Oguntayo, stated that the election was peaceful in Ikere, his hometown, before some suspected cultists stormed some polling units to disrupt the election process.

The speaker who was saddened by the death of a yet- to- be- identified citizen, described as unfortunate the killing “because no election is worth the blood of anyone”.

Afuye sympathized with the family of the deceased and called for peace to reign in the community among the members of the political parties in order to allow security agents investigate the matter.

Speaking further on the incident, Afuye said, “information that reached me during the election as I was also in Ikere Ekiti, was that some suspected cultists stormed polling units to disrupt the process. We condemn this act of thuggery and vandalism in its entirety”. He therefore admonished citizens to maintain their peace while justice is done by the law enforcement agents.
