Reps To Buhari: Mandate Police To Apologise To Nigerians Over Ekiti Incident

The House of Representatives has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to mandate the Police and other security agencies to apologise to Nigerians over alleged brutality on Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose.

In the process, policemen were alleged to have attacked the governor, a situation that led to injuries on him.

The House condemned what it described as “unwarranted attack and assault” on Fayose and the people of Ekiti State by the police and pointed out that it was uncivil and unconstitutional.

According to him, the police men were shooting sporadically with the aim to instill fear in the people ahead of the election.

He said that assaulting citizens did not fall under the duties of the police neither did it comply with the tenets of the Rule of Law.

He referred to the actions of the police as illegality and constitutional breach which should not be allowed in democracy.

He said that urgent steps had to be taken to halt the development and called on security agencies to order to prevent Nigeria’s democracy from failing.
