Murder Charges On Fayemi's Aide: Bamidele Alleges Grand Ploy To Set Him Up


A House of Representatives member and Labour Party gubernatorial aspirant in Ekiti State, Hon. Opeyemi Bamidele has alleged a grand ploy by the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to frame him up on trump up charges over the rumoured attempt on the life of the security aide to the governor, Mr. Deji Adesokan.

He called on  the Inspector-General of Police, the Director-General of the Department of State Services, DSS,  and other relevant security agencies in the country to investigate and sanction those found culpable in the allegation, saying none of those arrested over the matter has a link with him.

A statement signed by Ahmed Salami, media aide to Bamidele in Ado Ekiti, yesterday, accused the APC and Ekiti government of desperately contriving sinister  means through which they could negotiate for the withdrawal of cases pending in court against Interim Chairman of the party, Mr. Jide Awe and nine alleged killers of Bamidele’s loyalist, Mr. Foluso Ogundare.

Afolabi Oyediran and Oluwafemi Sunday were arrested within the premises of Deji Adesokan, a Senior Special Assistant to the governor on Internal Security about two weeks ago with  arms.

Bamidele said, “Given the mischievous way the story was presented to the public, it is important for us to put the record straight to avail the members of the public an opportunity to know the truth of the matter.

“In the first instance, the governor’s aide Deji Adesokan (aka Jaruu) is a notorious persecutor of perceived opponents of  Fayemi who would stop at nothing to implicate, intimidate, harass and, where he can, outrightly kill to ensure a second term tenure so desperately desired by Governor Olukayode John Fayemi in spite of the increasing rejection by well-meaning Ekiti people who are insisting that they can- not be fooled more than once.

However the APC spokesman, Mr. Segun Dipe reacting to the statement said the present state government of Fayemi and the party has no time for frivolity and triviality. He accused Bamidele of trying to give an impression that judiciary is compromising.
