WATCH: Ekiti protesters demand Fayose's resignation

08 July 2016, 09:41

Ado-Ekiti - A coalition of civil society organisations in Ekiti State and the Conference of Nigeria Political Parties protested in Ado Ekiti, demanding the resignation of Governor Ayodele Fayose.

Traffic was at a standstill according to Nation for several hours on Thursday in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, where the protesters were showing displeasure over the alleged involvement of Fayose in the looting of funds meant for the purchase of arms.

Public workers in Ekiti State are owed five months salaries while media reports said the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission had traced N4.7bn from the Office of the National Security Adviser to Fayose’s account and two sons of a former Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro.

According to the protesters, the EFCC’s freezing of Fayose’s account, which is said to contain N1.3 billion received from the office of the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd), was justified following the revelations.

The protest started at Fajuyi Park, moving through Okesa, Ojumose, Okeyinmi and Old Garage before it terminated at Ijigbo Roundabout. Policemen, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps officers and Department of State Services (DSS) counterparts gave a security cover to the protesters.
