Ekiti Assembly orders IGP to arrest Buhari’s minister

08 February 2017, 06:01

Ado Ekiti -  The Ekiti State House of Assembly has issued a warrant of arrest against former Governor Kayode Fayemi over alleged corruption.

The assembly had on Thursday summoned Fayemi to appear before it on Tuesday to defend himself, threatening to issue a warrant of arrest.

But the Minister of Mines and Steel Development failed to honour the invitation, making the assembly to make good its threat.

The assembly, pursuant to Section 129(1) (d) of the 1999 Constitution, ordered the Inspector General of Police, Ibahim Idris, the Commissioner of Police in the state, Wilson Inalegwu and other security agencies, including international Police to immediately arrest the serving Minister.

The decision was taken at plenary on Tuesday through a resolution by the lawmakers.

Fayemi was accused of awarding a N304m contract for planting of flowers for urban renewal project in Ado Ekiti during his tenure.

It was alleged that over 50% of the contract sum had been paid but no single flower was planted.

The former governor was also accused of paying a sum of N115m for the construction of a new Governor’s office but no structure was put in place as at the time he left office in 2014.
