The immediate past deputy governor of Ekiti state, Professor Kolapo Olusola Eleka, has demanded an overhaul of Ekiti state security architecture.
Professor Eleka stated this through a statement that was personally signed by him in reaction to the shooting of two farmers in Ekiti state by Fulani herdsmen.
Read statement below;
“My attention has just been drawn to another unfortunate incidence of Bandits, who indiscriminately shot 2 people in Ikole Ekiti last night, which allegedly claimed one life and landed the other in a critical condition at Ikole Teaching Hospital.
Like I have always reiterated, the security of our dear people in Ekiti state is important and should be taken seriously; as a matter of fact, this is the essence of Government.
I thereby call on the Governor to act swiftly to the security challenges that is bedevilling our state, and bring all culprits to book so as to serve as deterrent to others.
Furthermore, the current security mechanism in the state should be overhauled, bringing security closer to the people.
We can’t continue to mourn our loved ones nor live in fear, enough is enough.
I also call on the good people of Ekiti State to be security conscious as they go about their legitimate daily activities.
May we not mourn our loved ones again as a result of this menace in Jesus Name. Amen
