A Sociopolitical Organization, Ekiti in the Diaspora Development Initiatives(EDDI), has condemned in strong terms, the violence and disgraceful conduct of the recently “concluded” bye election in Ekiti East Local Government, Ekiti State.
The sit became available after the demise of the Member representing Ekiti East constituency I in the Ekiti States House of Assembly, Hon. Juwa Adegbuyi.
Mr Ayodele Orebe said it’s unfortunate and frustrating to know that this undemocratic, barbaric and disgraceful era still exist in Ekiti politics. He further noted that “what was witnessed in Omuo Ekiti during the bye election can best be classified as classical act of domestic terrorism against the people of Ekiti East local government and Ekiti State at large.”
The EDDI’s spokesperson appealed to both the State and Federal government to quickly intervene and fish out the criminal elements involved in the political killings; otherwise, it may become a template for the forthcoming 2022 governorship election and 2023 general elections.
On behalf of EDDI, Mr. Orebe sympathized with the families of those killed during the violent attack especially the female police officer killed in the line of duty. “I pray the souls of the departed Rest In Peace and also pray that God will give the families the fortitude to bear the unfortunate and unnecessary loss of their loved one.”
