The Ekiti State Government on Sunday, raised alarm over an allegedÂ invasion of the State by Policemen, to begin indiscriminate arrest ofÂ top officials of the government, leaders of the Peoples Democratic
Party (PDP), as well as members of the State House of Assembly, onÂ Monday based on frivolous petitions orchestrated by the AllÂ Progressives Congress (APC) over governorship election that the party
lost two years ago.The government alleged that the 20 Policemen to be led by one ACPÂ Olusola Oke, a native of Isan Ekiti, hometown of the Minister of SolidÂ Minerals, Dr Kayode Fayemi were already in Alagbon, Lagos ready to
move to Ekiti by 9am on Sunday in three white coloured Toyota HummerÂ buses.
In a statement issued by the Special Assistant to the State GovernorÂ on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the governmentÂ alleged that All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders like Femi FalanaÂ (SAN), Senator Babafemi Ojudu, Yinka Akerele and others wereÂ coordinating the invasion in their desperation to destabilise theÂ State because of Governor Ayodele Fayoseâ€™s perceived opposition to theÂ inhuman policies of the federal government.
â€œWe have been reliably informed that the latest onslaught against theÂ PDP government of Mr Ayodele Fayose is to begin on Monday, using theÂ police to arrest top government officials, PDP leaders across the 16Â local government areas and members of the House of Assembly.
â€œACP Olusola Oke, who is to lead the over 20 policemen to carry outÂ the operation is said to be a native of Isan Ekiti, hometown of theÂ Minister of Solid Minerals, Dr Kayode Fayemi. ACP Olusola Oke is
equally the immediate past Assistant Commissioner in charge ofÂ Operations and now the AC X-Squad, FCID, Abuja.
â€œThe operation is allegedly being funded by a former governor from theÂ South South while a prominent aide of President Mohammadu Buhari isÂ said to be directly coordinating.
â€œACP Olusola Oke will be accompanied by CSP Ayodele, CSP Enang, fourÂ Inspectors and others,â€ the statement read. The government said allÂ attempts by the APC to return to power through the backdoor will fail,Â adding that the party should rather prepare for 2018 instead ofÂ running from the Army, DSS, EFCC and now the police.
The government also cautioned the APC led federal government not toÂ destroy democracy in the country by muscling opposition, alerting theÂ international community to take note of the danger facing democracy inÂ the country.
