Former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Secretary in Ekiti State, Tope Aluko has accused Governor Ayo Fayose of threatening his life.
Aluko made the allegation on Thursday, April 7, 2016, while addressing a press conference in Lagos, Vanguard reports.
“I have not fled the country and equally on bail from the agencies while snippets of issues ensuing from these statements are filtering into the ears of the actors/beneficiaries such that attack are now coming from all direction targeted at me,” Aluko said.
“While the army council sacked their officers as a result of the investigation, it is unfortunate that the civilian actors/beneficiaries of the Ekitigate are not only walking the street freely, but also threatening my person and family.
“This a call on the Attorney General of the Federation not to allow all these to be swept under the carpet in view of recent happening. The far reaching effect and implication on our electoral process and procedure are obvious.
“I never prostrated with Hon. Olugbemi anywhere. Olugbemi will do anything for Fayose after all, he is an appointee of Fayose. Please note that I understand Fayose and I understand the working system. I can tell you that Olugbemi’s press statement was composed directly by Fayose and delivered to Olugbemi though his media aide,” he added.
Aluko had earlier accused Fayose of receiving $37 million from former president, Goodluck Jonathan to rig the June 2014 elections in Ekiti.
He was however recently caught on camera reconciling with Fayose at a peace meeting, an action which he has described as a tactical error.
