fleeing Ondo State are relocating to Ekiti forests following the 7-day
ultimatum issued by Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.
In a statement made available to newsmen in Ado Ekiti, the State
Commissioner for Information and Values Orientation, Hon Akin Omole
described the news report as a figment of the imagination of the
author and pure speculation most likely originating from the recent
security threat in the neighboring Ondo State.
Omole assured residents in Ekiti State of security to their lives and
properties adding that relevant security agencies including the State
Amotekun Corps are monitoring the State boundaries round the clock.
According to him, the State Government and security operatives are
investigating and in control of situation surrounding the only
skirmish that occurred at Ago Aduloju at the outskirts of the State
“The State Government sympathises with all those who were affected by
this and would like the community to be assured that no efforts will
be spared to ensure that Ekiti citizens are able to conduct their
affairs in peace, unhindered by criminals of any kind”, Omole stated.
Stressing the commitment of the Fayemi led administration to the
general wellbeing of people in the State, Omole advised the people to
disregard all unsubstantiated news reports and go about their lawful
endeavors without fear of intimidation or threats to their lives and
