The Ekiti state government has alleged that a police strike team of 20 men have been sent to invade the state and arrest some prominent politicians on Monday, July 11, 2016.

The state government also said the team, which will be led by ACP Olusola Oke, who is also from Isan Ekiti, the hometown of the Minister of Solid Minerals, Kayode Fayemi has assembled at Alagbon, waiting for orders.

The Special Assistant to Governor Ayo Fayose on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, also said they plan to arrest Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftains and members of the state House of Assembly in the state.

Olayinka said in a statement that “We have been reliably informed that the latest onslaught against the PDP government of Mr Ayodele Fayose is to begin on Monday, using the police to arrest top government officials, PDP leaders across the 16 local government areas and members of the House of Assembly.

“ACP Olusola Oke, who is to lead the over 20 policemen to carry out the operation is said to be a native of Isan Ekiti, hometown of the Minister of Solid Minerals, Dr Kayode Fayemi. ACP Olusola Oke is equally the immediate past Assistant Commissioner in charge of Operations and now the AC X-Squad, FCID, Abuja.“

The state government also called on the All Progressives Congress (APC) not to destabilise democracy by their actions.

Olayinka also said “The operation is allegedly being funded by a former governor from the South South while a prominent aide of President Mohammadu Buhari is said to be directly coordinating.

“ACP Olusola Oke will be accompanied by CSP Ayodele, CSP Enang, four Inspectors and others.”

Governor Ayo Fayose also debunked reports that his election was funded by the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.
