There is tension across Ekiti towns as some functionaries of Governor Kayode Fayemi administration have concluded plans to arrest some party members who are opposed to the candidacy of Biodun Oyebanji.
Already, some party members have been shortlisted to be arrested before Thursday, January 27, when the All Progressives Congress (APC) will hold its Governorship primary in Ekiti State.
It was gathered that the meeting was held yesterday, Monday, 24th January, 2022 in Ado-Ekiti. The main agenda of the said meeting was to arrest defiant party members ahead of the election .
One of those shortlisted to be arrested appealed to security agencies not to allow them to be used by the State government officials who are bent to impose Biodun on the party members.
He said, ” why are they agitated if they are so sure of Biodun Oyebanji popularity, they should campagin for him, instead of using security agencies to harass and intimidate party members.
” It is obvious that the party is polarized in Ekiti, people will resist any attempt to impose Biodun on them, let him do his work very well and leave it to electorate to decide.”
Among the party members listed to be arrested are: Olubunmi Oguntuase, Gbenga Banji Hon. Ropo Ige, Ijero, .Hon.Toyin.Agbaje, Ijero LG, Prince Akin Olayisade, Ido Osi, DG, MOB Campaign Team
