The Police Command , Ekiti State has for over 12 hours now, detained Mr. Lere Olayinka, spokesman of immediate past Governor of the state allegedly on the orders of Governor Kayode Fayemi.
Daily Sun learnt that Olayinka was invited to the police command to react to some allegations of financial impropriety leveled against him by the government of Ekiti State. He has appeared and written his statement denying the allegations but he is still being held at the police custody several hours after his statement was written.
Spokesman of the New media arm of Peoples Democratic Party in the state, Bola Agboola alleged that Mr Olayinka was being detained by the police on the orders of Governor Kayode Fayemi even after fulfilling all constitutional obligations on the development, in a release on Monday evening made available to newsmen, Agboola said “
Today, Lere Olayinka honoured the invitation by the police in Ekiti State over allegations of financial impropriety made against him by the Fayemi led APC govt.
He has made his statement, describing all the allegations as false, frivolous and politically motivated.
He is waiting for further action by the police, who may be taking directives from the State Govt.
The worse is being expected though and it can’t be worse than what was done to him by this same Fayemi’s govt on October 8, 2012.
Nigerians should however be rest assured that Lere Olayinka won’t be silenced, he won’t be intimidated. “
When called to react to the allegation, Ekiti State Police Public Relations Officer, Sunday Abutu, said he was not aware about Olayinka’s detention on the orders of Governor Fayemi and asked the Reporter to contact his boss, who is the Commissioner of police on the state.
