Dr. Kayode Fayemi, the immediate past governor of Ekiti State and APC chieftain, has disclosed the existence of a second part of a now-viral audio that purportedly exposed how the June 2014 elections in the state was rigged.
Fayemi, who spoke during his 50th birthday thanksgiving service at St. Martin’s Catholic Church, Isan-Ekiti, said that “those who denied that they were not the ones will hear the second part of the recording and they will keep quiet.”
The first part of the audio, which is already in the public domain, captured voices which allegedly belonged to Governor Ayo Fayose, Senator Iyiola Omisore, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro and Police Affairs Minister Jelili Adesiyan at a meeting where they ordered military officers including a Brigadier General to help the PDP in manipulating the electoral process in the state.
The two most prominent politicians fingered in the audio, Governor Ayo Fayose and Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, have consistently denied participating in any rigging attempt.
The election was conducted on June 21, 2014 and Fayose swept all the 16 local government areas against the then-incumbent-Governor Kayode Fayemi.
