Fayemi Imposes Indefinite Curfew on Ekiti State As Law & Order Breaks Down

Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi has imposed indefinite
curfew on the state following outbreak of mayhem and destruction of
property in the state.
The curfew according to the governor will last from 7PM to 7 AM.
“The curfew will remain in place until further notice”, he said in a
state broadcast as he appealed for calm.
The violence occurred in Ado-Ekiti as news of assassination of former
chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in
Ekiti state, Mr. Omolafe Aderiye filtered into town.
He was killed by unknown gunmen at Ijigbo area of Ado Ekiti on
Thursday night after allegedly leading a group of thugs to beat up a
judge presiding over a case involving Governor- Elect, Mr. Ayodele
Fayose.
The rampaging thugs reportedly burnt down Fayemi’s campaign office and
secretariat of the All Progressive Congress, APC in the state.
Several buildings were also torched during the mayhem, forcing the
governor to impose indefinite curfew on the state.
The governor has paid sympathy visit to widow of the deceased.
