Babafemi Ojudu, the Senator of Ekiti Central District representative ,has come out to say that Governor Ayo Fayose, who is battling to stave off impeachment from 19 lawmakers of the All Progressives Congress, has threats his life.
According to him, Gov. Fayose, through his media aide, Lere Olayinka, is threatening his life and that of Adewale Omirin the Speaker of the State Assembly.
Ojudu, took to his facebook page, saying that “Mr Lere Olayinka who serves as media goon to Governor Fayose of Ekiti displayed my name, telephone numbers and that of the speaker of Ekiti State House of Assembly Omirin on his Facebook page.
“He equally sent out bulk SMS to people of Ekiti State. In his posting on his page he said I am responsible for the attempt to impeach his boss because I wanted to be governor and therefore called on the governor’s supporters to put calls through to my phone lines and threaten me with death.
“I have since received hundreds of such calls in the last 24 hours. And I am still receiving more”, Mr. Ojudu said Monday evening.
Though i am not afraid of the plot, but i need to bring the matter to the public domain and for law enforcement agencies to take note Ojudu said.
“I am heading to the office of the Inspector General of Police to lodge a complaint on this threat to life. Should anything untoward happen to me, Governor Fayose and his goon, Lere Olayinka, should be held responsible”, he added.
Mr. Olayinka reacting to the allegation,said his decision to post the phone numbers of Messrs Ojudu and Omirin does not amount to threat on their lives. “ No one is threatening you so please put your mind at rest,”he said.
After all, “Phone numbers of prominent Nigerians have been posted on Facebook before and nothing happened. Why should his own be different?” he asked.
I was also a victim, said the governor’s aide.
“My phone numbers were also posted by their people and I have been receiving calls for over seven hours now and even more”.
Most of the callers insulted him for supporting Mr. Fayose, Mr. Olayinka said.
