The PDP chairman in the state, Gboyega Oguntuase, said the country’s democracy was in danger under the present IGP, adding that, “as we speak now, the police have taken over our land, but we shall not be intimidated.”
He stated this while reacting to an allegation of gunshots at the main entrance to the Government House while tear gas canisters were reportedly shot to disperse the crowd at the rally.
Also, the senator representing Ekiti South, Mrs Biodun Olujimi, said the entire people of the state that put Fayose in government could not be wrong, urging the Federal Government to have a rethink and warn the policemen.
Olujimi said Ekiti people would never resort to violence in spite of the intimidation and harassment of the PDP supporters.
“Our people were being picked up everywhere, over what? If you are popular you won’t be doing all these. Ekiti people will vote for the PDP on Saturday, anything outside a democratically-elected person is a nullity, it is undemocratic,” she added.
The Chairman, House Committee on Information, Samuel Omotoso, said the PDP office in the state capital had been occupied by policemen, describing the action as a return of the country to military era.
