Ekiti Violence: It was Orchestrated By Fayose – Former Speaker Bamisile
A former Speaker of the Ekiti State House Assembly, Rt (Hon.) Olufemi Bamisile has expressed dissatisfaction on the recent attacks on the Hausa Community in Ekiti State by some thugs alleged to be hatched-men of the Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose.
Bamisile said it was a ploy to deliberately attack the Hausas because they mobilized and voted for the President-elect General Muhammadu Buhari (retd) against his directives to vote for President Goodluck Jonathan, and also deliberately orchestrated the game to declare curfew in the State so that the embattled G-19 lawmakers of the State House of Assembly would not be able to discharge their constitutional responsibility of putting the integrity of the Governor on a constitutional check, therefore redirecting the attack on the All Progressives’ Congress.
Speaking in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State Capital, Bamisile, a chieftain of APC said “What if I tell you that Governor Fayose orchestrated this game just to call the dog a bad name so as to hang it? Authoritatively, we have intelligence in APC that he was informed ahead of time about the crisis and he neglected the said report. He did it deliberately to punish the Hausas because they voted for Buhari against his choice in President Jonathan.”
“You will recollect that he threatened fire and brimstone during his hate campaigns all through the electioneering period. He said he was going to chase away all the Hausas from Ekiti State if they voted against Goodluck Jonathan during one of his many hate speeches in Ekiti. He started by sending all the Watermelon sellers away before his thugs went ahead to attack and destroys all the properties of the business-loving Hausas. He has now moved them away to the outskirt of the State Capital in fulfilling his hate campaign promises to the community”
Rt. (Hon.) Bamisile said the Governor’s action of addressing the violence and arson against the Hausas was belated and calls for concern, therefore enabling a jungle justice environment for all the interested parties.
“Does it not sound unreasonable and fishy that the Governor decided to address the violence between the Hausa and his groups only after four (4) days that the Hausas were attacked? I tell you that not even a Mobile Policeman (MOPOL) was deployed throughout the four days, until when the properties and business of the gentlemen and investors were completely set ablaze”
“My justification of this is certain that even during the Governor’s dusk to dawn curfew, some arsonists invaded the popular Oja Oba Market and burnt down all the market stalls, where the Hausas resides. It is a ploy to burn down the Hausas when sleeping. The question is who must have done this successfully without a security cover?
He also said he was surprised to learn that it was the APC that caused the security breach and a plan to justify his impeachment.
“I was shocked to hear the State Chief Security Officer saying that APC caused it? Was it the APC that staged the attack on the Hausa community? Mr. Governor must been doing and saying all of these, just to prevent the legislative activities of the G-19, so that he buys enough time and escapes his constitutional rape”
