ADO-EKITI—THE pan-Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere, and All Progressives Congress, APC, legislators in the House of Assembly, yesterday, condemned the rising wave of killings in Ekiti State.
They urged security agencies to do everything possible to fish out the killers of the Federal Character Commission board member and a chieftain of the APC, Mr. Bunmi Ojo and other individuals in some parts of the state.
Afenifere, in a statement, by its state Chairman, Elder Yemi Alade and its Publicity Secretary, Chief Bisi Alade, condemned what it called “seeming helplessness of the Police.”
Rising from its emergency meeting in Ado-Ekiti, Afenifere said: “It is the view of Afenifere that the killers are human beings who are supposed to be traceable. They are no spirits hence all efforts should be made by all who are supposed to do the needful.
“We seize this opportunity to commiserate with the APC on the murder of one of its shining stars, Mr. Bunmi Ojo, who was until his assassination the Commissioner representing Ekiti on the Federal Character Commission and who had performed excellently well.
“It was more painful when we heard that his term had even been renewed for another five years. Ekiti Afenifere particularly extends its condolences to the wife, children, family, as well as one of APC leaders, and former governor Segun Oni, who had a special relationship with late Bunmi Ojo.”
