Re: ALLEGED ASSAULT ON MOTORIST

The attention of the Government of Ekiti State has been drawn to a statement and footage in circulation on social media alleging that security operatives attached to the convoy of the Governor assaulted a motorist, identified as Dayo Oshituyi in Akure, Ondo State, a few days ago.

We empathise with the victim and affirm our belief that no citizen should suffer any form of brutality in contravention of extant laws. 

While the allegation is currently being investigated by the State Government and relevant security agencies, it is however important to state clearly that the Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi is not aware of the incident and cannot be party to any form of assault on a citizen. This is contrary to the allegation that the Governor witnessed the alleged brutalisation of Mr Oshituyi.

We kindly implore Mr Oshituyi to contact the Governor’s Office, Oke Bareke, Ado-Ekiti with useful information to help the investigations.

We assure members of the public that the Government of Ekiti State, in line with its principle of justice and fairness, will be fair in handling the matter.

 Yinka Oyebode

Chief Press Secretary to the Governor
