Ekiti - Members of a coalition of civil society groups marched on the streets of Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, to protest alleged impunity, lawlessness, corruption and anti-people policies of the Ayo Fayose administration.
The placard-carrying protesters accused Fayose of inflicting suffering on the people and failing to run a transparent and accountable government.
They slammed the lawmakers for lying that the Department of State Services (DSS) invaded the House of Assembly, saying they have since discovered that there was no invasion.

The protesters also declared their support for the anti-corruption crusade of President Muhammadu Buhari, insisting that all those who stole the nation’s wealth must be punished.
They called for Fayose’s probe over the Ekitigate scandal and alleged ownership of property in Abuja, Ghana, South Africa and Dubai while workers and pensioners are being owed arrears of salaries and benefits.
