Fayemi Blames Desperate Elements In PDP For Oshiomhole’s Aide’s Death

May 4, 2012

Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi has commiserated with his Edo State Counterpart, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole over the assassination of his Personal Secretary, Mr. Olaitan Oyerinde.

Oyerinde was reportedly killed by a four man gang at his Ugbor G.R.A, Benin City residence on Thursday.

Governor Fayemi in a statement in Ado-Ekiti, however, blamed  “desperate elements within the Peoples Democratic Party”  for the death of Oyerinde, a union activists who once served as  Deputy General Secretary of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) before joining the Oshiomhole –led administration.

Fayemi, in the statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Olayinka Oyebode, said that Oyerinde’s assassination, as well as last week’s controversial accident involving Governor Oshiomhole’s convoy, where three journalists died, were not unconnected with the July governorship election in the state, where the PDP is making desperate efforts to stage a come back, by scaling up violence in the state.

He said the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) would treat the onslaught as a case of “injury to one is injury to all”, adding that the party would not fold its arms an watch helplessly as states under its control are turned into a theatre of violence.

Saying that acts of violence and desperation are incapable of giving PDP victory at the poll, Governor Fayemi said the Adams Oshiomole –led administration has impacted positively on the lives of Edo people and no desperation or violent acts can stop his re-election in the July election.

The Ekiti Governor urged the law enforcement agencies to conduct  a thorough investigation into the matter with a view to bringing the perpetrators to book. He also cautioned that linking the killing of Oyerinde to armed robbery attack would not be acceptable.

The statement also noted that the escalation of violence in Edo State, which is a product of the do-or-die politics of  PDP, is similar to the attempt by same elements to foment crisis in Osun, Oyo, Ogun, Ondo and Ekiti States, hiding under different guises.

“We commiserate with Governor Oshiomole and hope that the perpetrators of this dastardly act would be brought to book.

“It is pertinent, however,  to let these characters know that we  are not unmindful of their  activities in Osun, Ondo and Ekiti States, where they have been moving around , holding nocturnal meetings and  hatching different plots to destabilize the states. They will surely meet their waterloo.” The statement added.
