Fayemi Reacts To Death Of Ekiti Lawmaker

Governor Kayode Fayemi has described the killing of a member of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, Michael Adedeji, as unfortunate and shocking, urging the security agencies to fish out the killers and also stop all politically-motivated killings.

Fayemi spoke while swearing in the new Secretary to the State Government, Mr Biodun Oyebanji;
Chief of Staff, Biodun Omoleye; Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Wale Fapohunda and Dapo Kolawole as Commissioner for Finance.

He said the state would put up new security measures to tackle all forms of killings in the state.

“This death came to us as unfortunate and shocking. But we are going to put up new security measures to ensure that Ekiti is safe for all of us. The kind of security we are going to put in place won’t be one that will make government part of security agents like we have in the past. We will allow them do their jobs while we provide the needed logistics.

“This is a challenge that the security agencies must do more to protect our people. They have to be alive to their responsibilities,” he said.
