Former Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State Temitope Aluko has called on the Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, to protect him.
At a briefing in Lagos yesterday, he said Governor Ayodele Fayose was trying to harm him.
His words: “I have not fled the country. The army council sacked its officers as a result of the investigation. It is unfortunate that the civilian actors/beneficiaries of the Ekitigate are not only walking the street freely, but also threatening my person and family. ”
Aluko said what happened in the June 21 2014 governorship election was gross abuse of power, illegality, harassment and intimidation.
“This is a call on the Attorney General of the Federation not to allow all these to be swept under the carpet in view of recent happenings. The far reaching effect and implication on our electoral process and procedure are obvious.”
He maintained that the allegation by a former Speaker of the House of Assembly that he prostrated before Fayose was a blackmail.
“I never prostrated for Fayose. Dele Olugbemi will do anything for the governor. After all, he is his appointee. Please note that I understand Fayose and I understand the system.
