APC Lawmakers Cancel Peace Meeting Over Secret Arrest Plot; Want Sitting Taken To Abuja

The 19 All Progressives Congress (APC) members in Ekiti State House of Assembly have cancelled a peace meeting brokered by Chief Afe Babalola slated for Thursday, 30th April, 2015, at Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti.

The cancellation is sequel to a secret plan to use the meeting as a booby trap to seize the members as they approach the university campus.

Government House sources said that Governor Ayodele Fayose wa‎s celebrating with his aides last night that he had succeeded in getting over his impeachment plot.

He was quoted as saying that the lawmakers will be arrested without even seeing Chief Babalola and they will be in detention until Monday, 1st June, 2015.

Security sources confirmed last night they could not guarantee the lawmakers’ safety advising that they should watch their movement.

The lawmakers have already contacted Chief Afe Babalola to shift the meeting to Abuja and that they would be willing to foot the bill.
