Ekiti police arrest 6-man fraud syndicate   Back To Top

From: Nigerian Tribune      Published on: Tuesday, September 08, 2009

Dapo Falade, Ado-Ekiti

A six-man syndicate, which has been going round the state dropping the name of the chairman of the Ado-Ekiti-based Pathfinder Hotels and traditional herbal practitioner, Dr. Akintunde Ayeni (a.k.a YEMKEM), to defraud people of their hard-earned money, was on Friday smashed by the police in Ado-Ekiti.

The members of the syndicate, including Oladeji Ayodimeji (32); Tope Ajayi, (22); Aderemi Femi, (23); Bankole Ojo, (27); Kolade Olorunisola, (21); and Akinola Osho, were said to have been parading themselves as workers of the trado-medical practitioner, looking for asunrin tree for herbal drug-making.

Confessing to the crime, Bankole, who claimed to be a trained mechanic, disclosed that they usually told their victims that they were searching for where they could get asunrin tree, which their boss wanted to use to prepare herbal elixir.

Saying that they used to promise their prospective victims some money if he or she could take them to where the tree could be located, Bankole said that, having bought a Mazda 626 saloon car from the illegal business, he went into intra-city transportation business in the Ado-Ekiti.

Addressing newsmen on how the suspects were arrested, Ms. Akande Taiye (a Police Sergeant), who is the officer in-charge of the Bawa Outpost Police Station, said the manager of the Pathfinder Hotels in Ado-Ekiti informed her about the activities of the suspects.

She said that Dr. Ayeni had complained that he had been receiving calls from friends and people from the state that some fraudsters were dropping his name to defraud innocent people in the state.

The police sergeant, who disclosed that the accused would soon be transferred to the state Police Headquarters for further investigations and prosecution, said they picked up Aderemi at his duty post where he was operating at the Old garage in Ado-Ekiti on Thursday.

AC witnesses disagree at Ekiti election petitions tribunal   Back To Top

From: Nigerian Tribune      Published on: Tuesday, September 08, 2009

Dapo Falade, Ado-Ekiti

THERE was a mild drama at the re- sumed hearing of the petition filed by the Action Congress (AC) governorship candidate in Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, at the Ekiti State Election Petitions Tribunal, sitting in Ado-Ekiti, on Monday, when two Action Congress (AC) witnesses contradicted themselves on the colour of shirts wore by the party agents during the conduct of the governorship rerun in the state.

Dr. Fayemi had filed a petition before the tribunal challenging the declaration of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Mr. Segun Oni, as the winner of the election.

Testifying before the tribunal, the two witnesses, Messrs Tunde Osunloro (PW31) and Kunle Adamolekun (PW32), who were both AC party agents during the election, contradicted themselves over the exact colour of T-shirts that were worn by all the party agents in Usi Ward in Ido-Osi Local Government Area as a means of identification during the April 25 governorship rerun election.

While Osunloro, who also doubled as the AC chairman in Usi Ward, told the tribunal that all the 16 agents of the party wore red coloured T-shirt at all the 16 polling units in the ward, Adamalekun described the statement as false.

Osunloro, who was the party agent at unit 11, said that he and other agents in the ward wore red T-shirts and the party tags in all the 16 voting units in the ward.

As the Ward Chairman and party agent in the election, all the AC agents in Usi Ward wore red T-shirt along side their agent tags on the April 25, 2009 when the governorship rerun election was conducted. The tags were given to us (the agents) by our party leaders who informed us that the INEC has approved us as agents for the election, he said.

However, Adamalekun who served as the AC agent at Unit 4, told the tribunal that he wore white T-shirt and AC tag as the party agent during the election.

Adamolekun, a 1988 graduate of Forestry Resource Management from the University of Ibadan, while being cross-examined by the PDP counsel, Mr. Joe Gadzama, told the court that the assertion by Osunloro was false.

If anybody has told the tribunal that all the 10 AC party agents at Usi Ward worn red T-shirt during the April 25 rerun election, that person is a liar. As for me, I wore white T-shirt. So, that statement that we (agents) all wore red T-shirt is not true but a tissue of lies.

Besides, Osunloro, who, along with Adamolekun, accused the police and the INEC officials of colluding with the PDP to rig the election, said he could not identify any of the policemen.

Ekiti AC alleges police harassment of witnesses   Back To Top

From: Guardian      Published on: Tuesday, September 08, 2009

From Ifedayo Sayo, Ado-Ekiti

THE Action Congress (AC) in Ekiti State has cautioned the state police command against being used to harass its witnesses at the ongoing Election Petition Tribunal.

The AC in a statement alleged that its witnesses from Ifaki, the home town of Governor Segun Oni, were being threatened with police arrest over the violence that characterised the last rerun senatorial election in the state.

Also, at the tribunal yesterday, the party, through its counsel, Chief Anthony Adeniyi, brought it to the notice of the tribunal members of the alleged threat of arrest of witnesses who gave evidence at the tribunal in favour of the AC.

But counsel to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chief Joe Gdazama, who claimed that his client had no hand in the threat of arrest, added that no court can stop the police from carrying out their duties.

He stressed that if the witnesses had committed any offence, the police would definitely go after them.

But Adeniyi explained that the witnesses were being harassed for giving evidence against the governor, saying these witnesses were never harassed before they came to the tribunal.

He added that the witnesses were only begged to stay away from the tribunal and not to be part of any plan to get the governor out of power.

But the AC in its statement yesterday by its spokesman, Mr. Yemi Adaramodu urged the state police command not to allow the state PDP government to drench their uniforms in the murky waters of politics.

The party said recent house to house raid of the AC witnesses with warrants of arrest in Ifaki is part of the plot of the PDP government to cling to the Government House.

"We had earlier sent a save-our-witness message to the tribunal when this plot was being hatched at the Government House. We were delighted when the tribunal warned on its effects.

"Regardless of the tribunal's admonition, the PDP regime still goaded security agents to hound innocent witnesses of truth who dared the political vampires of Ifaki Ekiti.

"We believe the new Commissioner of Police is strange to the chicanery of Ekiti PDP and we urge him to be wary of PDP's cut-throat politics which corrupts whoever accepts their fraternity.

"It is spuriously unbelievable for AC witnesses to be charged with attempted murder and wilful damage during the senatorial rerun while PDP thugs who attempted the life of Mr. Olu Adetunmbi, the AC Senatorial candidate saunter confidently on the streets.

"It was Mr. Adetunmbi that the supervising AIG Ringim advised to flee Ifaki due to the fire power of the PDP miscreants who narrowly missed killing Adetunmbi. Despite the public knowledge of the Ifaki Senatorial rerun debacle, the PDP still slobbered as usual, the system against the Action Congress supporters.

"The current travails of our witnesses from Ifaki is a vengeance mission to shoo them into the dungeon due to the pathetic revelations on the political draculas in Ifaki whom one of them was pointed to in the court room," the party said.

Ekiti Rerun: ICPC Probes INEC Officials   Back To Top

From: This Day      Published on: Tuesday, September 08, 2009

Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has set up a special task force to investigate allegations of bribery involving some officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), who participated in the April 25, 2009 governorship election rerun in Ekiti State.
This is in response to a petition written by Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), a Non-governmental Organisation, requesting for thorough, transparent and effective investigation into allegations that some INEC officials demanded for or received bribes to discharge their official duties.
In a letter sent to SERAP, ICPCs Chairman, Justice Olayinka Ayoola (rtd) said a special task force will be empowered to investigate the bribery allegation.
According to reports, each Collation Officer was to collect N200,000, while a Presiding Officer was to collect N100,000.
One Mr. Okey Ndeche of the Operations Department of INEC reportedly collected the money for distribution to his colleagues.
The disbursement of the bribe money was reportedly awaiting clearance from the INEC chairman.

In a statement signed by SERAP's Executive Director, Adetokunbo Mumuni, the group noted that it is seriously concerned that the above allegations are grave breaches of the 1999 Constitution, the ICPC Act of 2000, and international anti-corruption conventions, including the UN Convention against Corruption to which Nigeria is a state party.
Specifically, Sections 9, 10, and 17 of the Corrupt Practices Act would appear to have been violated in the above mentioned case the petitioner had said
"Section Nine prohibits corrupt offers to public officers; Section 10 prohibits corrupt demand by any persons; while Section 17 prohibits gratification by and through agents.
According to the Act, any person who corruptly accepts, obtains or agrees to accept or obtain from any person for himself or for any other person, any gift or consideration as an inducement or reward for doing, forbearing to do or having done or forborne to do any act or thing, gives or agrees to give or offers any gift or consideration to any agent as an inducement or reward for doing or forbearing to do any act or thing in relation to his principal's affairs or business is guilty of an offence."The UN Convention against Corruption contains similar prohibitions, and imposes clear obligations on Nigeria to investigate allegations of bribery such as the present one; and prosecute suspected perpetrators."Addressing the allegations above would ultimately help to achieve a corruption-free electoral process not only in Ekiti, but also in the whole country ahead of 2011 elections, and contribute to the restoration of transparency, accountability, good governance and the rule of law in the democratic dispensation," the statement noted.

Ekiti tribunal told how ex-minister Borishade residence was used to rig election   Back To Top

From: The Nation      Published on: Tuesday, September 08, 2009

By Odunayo Ogunmola

The Ekiti State Election Petitions Tribunal was yesterday told how ballot boxes for the conduct of the governorship rerun election in Usi-Ekiti in Ido/Osi Local Government Area were taken to the residence of the former Minister of Aviation, Prof. Babalola Borishade, where ballot papers were thumb-printed in favour of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Borishade who also served as the former Minster of Education and Culture, Tourism and National Orientation, hails from Usi-Ekiti where witnesses who testified at the tribunal alleged that voters were not allowed to exercise their franchise.

The tribunal was also told that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) allegedly breached the accreditation procedures in some units in Usi-Ekiti during the April 25 governorship rerun poll.

An Action Congress (AC) witness, Mr. Gbenga Agbeyo, alleged that Borishades residence was "turned to a polling unit where ballot papers thumb-printed for the PDP."

When asked what he was doing in the neighbourhood when the ballot boxes were taken to ex-ministers house, Agbeyo replied that his suspicion was aroused by the fact that ballot boxes had found their way into Borishades residence earlier in the morning for the purpose of rigging the election.

"They seized ballot boxes earlier in the morning and that informed why I kept vigil around Borishades house. That is the usual practice anytime there is election in Usi," he said.

Agbeyo, the Petitioner Witness (PW 33), who was who was led in examination-in-chief by Action Congress (AC) governorship candidate Kayode Fayemis counsel, Anthony Adeniyi (SAN), and cross-examined by lawyers to the respondents, said Borishade and other PDP chieftains rigged the election in the town.

Another AC witness, Mr. Kunle Adamolekun, while giving evidence before the five-man panel of judges led by Justice Hamma Barka said the presiding officer at Unit 16 wrote the names of voters in an exercise book on the election day.

He said he was brutalised by three riot policemen whom he alleged aided and abetted hoodlums suspected to be working for the PDP to steal electoral materials.

It was at the continuation of the hearing of the petition filed by Fayemi, who is challenging the election of PDP candidate Segun Oni.

Adamolekun, who was the PW 32, disclosed under cross-examination that many of the eligible voters names were not on the INEC voters register.

"The names written in the exercise book were more than the ones ticked in the voters register," he alleged.

The witness said voting began around 9.00 am was going on peacefully until about noon when suspected PDP thugs unleashed terror on voters.

"Usi-Ekiti was like a war zone on the election day," Adamolekun said.

Under cross-examination from counsel to Oni, Chief Duro Adeyele (SAN), Adamolekun said he gave evidence in Yoruba because some of his illiterates family members were in court to observe proceedings.

Earlier, PW 31, Mr. Geroge Tunde Osunloro, the AC chairman in Usi Ward, had fingered the former Caretaker Chairman of Ido/Osi Local Government Area, Mr. Yomi Ayorinde, media assistant to Borishade, Mr. Remi Ibitola and the PDP Women Leader, whom he did not name, as the arrowheads of violence that rocked the town.

Ekiti AC warns police against intimidation of witnesses   Back To Top

From: The Nation      Published on: Tuesday, September 08, 2009

By Odunayo Ogunmola

PDP disowns plot

The Action Congress (AC) in Ekiti State has urged the police not to be used by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)-led administration to hound its witnesses from Ifaki-Ekiti.

Condemning last weekends raid on the houses of the witnesses, the AC warned officers and men of the command "not to allow the PDP regime to drench their uniforms with murky waters of politics".

But the PDP accused the AC of attempting to cover up its witnesses.

In statement yesterday by the Director of Communications, AC Governorship Campaign, Mr. Yemi Adaramodu, the party advised the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Sabo Ringim, to be wary of what he called "the PDP cut-throat politics which corrupts whoever accepts their fraternity".

The AC said it had sent a distress call to the tribunal when the plot to intimidate its witnesses in Ifaki was allegedly being hatched in the Government House.

The party absolved its members of the allegation of attempted murder and wilful damage slammed on them by the police, urging them to "check the PDPs lugubrious portfolio of thuggery for such pliable miscreants".

The party expressed dismay that the PDP administration "still goaded security agents to hound innocent witnesses of truth who dared the political vampires of Ifaki Ekiti."

The statement reads in part: "It is spuriously unbelievable for AC witnesses to be charged with attempted murder and wilful damage during the senatorial rerun while PDP thugs who attempted the life of Mr. Olu Adetunmbi, the AC senatorial candidate, saunter confidently on the streets.

"It was Mr. Adetunmbi that the supervising DIG Ringim advised to flee Ifaki due to the fire power of the PDP miscreants who narrowly missed killing Adetunmbi.

"The travails of our witnesses from Ifaki is a vengeance mission to shoo them into the dungeon due to the pathetic revelations on the political Draculas in Ifaki."

But, reacting through its Director of Communications and Strategy, Mr. Jackson Adebayo, the PDP accused AC of covering up its members.

"Times without number we have said it that we dont need to harass or intimidate anybody to win the petition of the AC at the tribunal.

"As at the time of this report there is no proof that any member of he PDP either at the state or the local level has ever masterminded any arrest and there is no plan to do so in the future," Adebayo said.

Proposed Ekiti International Airport ll be viable - Oni   Back To Top

From: Nigerian Tribune      Published on: Monday, September 07, 2009

Clement Idoko, Abuja

THE Ekiti State governor, Mr. Segun Oni, at the weekend defended the proposed Ekiti International Airport, saying the multi-million naira airport would be a viable project for the state.

Speaking through his Commissioner for Special Duties, Mr. Segun Ilori, in Abuja, Oni said the project was well thought-out by his administration to bring development to the state.

The governor, reacting to critics of the administration who said the proposed airport in the state would be a white elephant project, assured that his government would not embark on projects that would not be accomplished.

Stressing that Rome was not built in a day, he said development would have to start somewhere.

He cited the example of the airport in Ondo State, which was constructed many years ago under criticism that it would not work, adding that it had become a viable airstrip used by all the surrounding states.

He said his administration would, however, not be deterred by the forces of opposition, saying development must be futuristic.

Oni further stated that people should not, because of the present economic downturn, think that nothing could be done, adding that the project would be public and private sector driven.

He expressed the commitment of his administration to the cause of development in the state and called on the people to join hands with his government in moving the state forward.

Ekiti police chief vows to check crime   Back To Top

From: Guardian      Published on: Monday, September 07, 2009

From Ifedayo Sayo, Ado-Ekiti

THE Commissioner of Police in Ekiti State, Mr. Sabo Ibrahim Ringim, has assured the people of the state of a renewed fight against crime to ensure safety of lives and property.

Speaking with journalists at the weekend, Ringim solicited the cooperation of the residents to make the state safe for economic activities, saying that residents should avail the police of relevant information, which could lead to the arrest of criminals within the society.

He pointed out that the cooperation of the residents in giving adequate information was important in the onslaught against criminals operating in the state, stressing that it was the determination of the state command to make kidnapping and armed robbery activities a thing of the past during his tenure in the state.

Ringim urged the residents to watch out for criminals within the society, saying that armed robbers could not operate in any environment they were not conversant with.

The Police Commissioner added that there is the need for cooperation between the police and the people.

He said if the people could be more vigilant, they would be able to identify these criminals and report them to the police before they carry out their nefarious activities.

Assuring the people of the state of utmost secrecy if they volunteered information to the police, the police boss said anyone with useful information was free to come to his office without fear of being betrayed.

Speaking on the inadequate communication gadgets for the operation of the police in the state, Ringim appealed to the state government to assist the command with state-of-the-art equipment to ensure hitch-free communications among crime fighters.

Ekiti AC witnesses allege police harassment over tribunal evidence   Back To Top

From: The Nation      Published on: Monday, September 07, 2009

By Odunayo Ogunmola

Action Congress (AC) witnesses from Ifaki-Ekiti in Ido/Osi Local Government Area of Ekiti State who gave evidence before the Election Petitions Tribunal at the weekend cried out over alleged police harrassment over their appearance before the tribunal.

At least five of the witnesses who were served with police summons on Saturday alleged that some Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftains in Ifaki, the hometown of Governor Segun Oni, wrote a petition to the state police command alleging some offences against the AC members.

The witnesses in their evidence before the Justice Hamma Barka-led five-man panel testified that agents of Oni disrupted the conduct of the April 25 rerun poll in the community.

They accused the (Onis agents) of ballot boxes and injuring dispersing eligible voters and party agents.

The tribunal at one of its sittings had warned against the harassment of the witnesses by the parties.

A copy of a letter from the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), obtained by The Nation yesterday from the Office of the Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) in charge of the department, directed the AC members to appear on September 9.

The AC witnesses were accused of attempted murder and wilful damage.

But speaking with our correspondent yesterday, the witnesses asserted their innocence.

They accused some PDP chieftains and sympathisers in the community of trying to use the police to put them out of circulation following their alleged defiance of an order not to testify against their kinsman at the tribunal.

A copy of the police summons written to one of the AC witnesses, Mr. Femi Ojurongbe (a.k.a. Laise), reads in part: "This office is investigating the case of attempted murder and wilful damage. You are hereby required to report at the SCID, Iyin Road, Ado-Ekiti on September 9, 2009 at about 9:00 a.m.

"On arrival, you will ask of OC (Officer-in-Charge) D II, Anti-Piracy Office, SCID, Iyin Road, Ado-Ekiti."

Speaking with The Nation, Ojurongbe said PDP chieftains in Ifaki which included Mr. Akin Fajemila, Ayo Owoniboy, Femi Olanrewaju (a.k.a. Ijakoko), Tunde Aladegbami, the governors younger brother, Dare Oni and Tayo Agbelese, led the policemen to his residence and handed the summons to his wife.

Ojurongbe said the allegations against him are trumped-up charges.

He said since gave evidence at the tribunal last week, his mobile phones had been inundated with threats from people who are not happy with his evidence.

Ojurongbe urged the police not to allow themselves to be used to witch-hunt innocent people.

Another AC witness summoned by the police, Mr. Oluyemi Oke (a.k.a. Apasco), said when the PDP agents brought the policemen to his house, he was not at home but the summons was dropped for his mother and children.

Police spokesman Mohammed Jimoh said: "No comment for now. I will go and see the Commissioner of Police over the matter tomorrow (today)."

Cleric tasks traditional rulers at Onis birthday service   Back To Top

From: Nigerian Tribune      Published on: Sunday, September 06, 2009

Dapo Falade, Ado-Ekiti

TRADTIONAL rulers, politicians, community leaders and other stakeholders in Ekiti State have been called upon to be alive to their responsibilities in addressing the increasing waves of criminality and criminal tendencies in the state.

Chaplain of the state Government House Chapel, Reverend Simeon Okelola, made the call in Ado-Ekiti on Saturday in his sermon at the thanksgiving service held to commemorate the 55th birthday of the state governor, Mr, Segun Oni.

He was, however, full of praises for the state governor whom he said was ordained by God to steer the ship of the state to a glorious and greater height.

We thank God for the life of the governor who was ordained by God and He (God) has helped to demolish all obstacles put on his way. Our prayer for the governor is that he shall overcome his enemies and whosoever is against him will need to work extra hard, he said.

Speaking at the service, the state deputy governor, Dr. Sikiru Lawal, described his boss as a team leader and a leader of leaders who deserved the birthday service held in his honour, even in absentia.

Also, the wife of the governor, Mrs. Kemi Oni, described her husband as a man who wants the best for the state, imploring the people of the state to give him their maximum support and cooperation.
