Fayemi reacts to murder of Ekiti APC chieftain



Ekiti Governor, Kayode Fayemi on Thursday asked security agencies to fish out killers of the Treasurer of the state chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC), Moses Adeoye.

He was murdered by gunmen at his Otun Ekiti residence on Tuesday night.

Adeoye, who until recently chairman of the party in Moba Local Government, was allegedly trailed to his residence by the gunmen and shot dead in the presence of his family members.

A statement by Fayemi’s Chief Press Secretary, Yinka Oyebode, directed all the security agencies in the state to ensure the killers are apprehended and made to face the wrath of the law.
Fayemi vowed to get to the root of the matter, stressing that anyone found to be connected in one way or the other with the killing would be dealt with decisively.
He said his administration would work with security agencies to put an end to the spate of assassination and violence in the state.

Meanwhile, the governor commiserated with the family of the deceased, assuring them of justice in the matter.
The Governor’s condolence message was delivered to the family by a high power delegation comprising the Secretary to the State Government, Mr Biodun Oyebanji; Chief of Staff, Mr Biodun Omoleye; and Chief Alaba Abejide.
The delegation later visited the Palace of Oore of Otun, Oba Adedapo Oladele Popoola and the party secretariat, where they also delivered the governor’s condolence message.
