Lere Olayinka, the Spokesman for the immediate past governor of the Ekiti state, Ayo Fayose has been detained by the State’s Police Command after he honoured an invitation by the police.
Olayinka was summoned by the police to react to allegations of financial impropriety made against him by the state government. He was however, detained after making his statement to the police.
Reacting to his detention, the spokesman of the new Media arm of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, Bola Agboola in a statement on Monday alleged that Olayinka was being detained on the orders of the state governor, Kayode Fayemi.
“Today, Lere Olayinka honoured the invitation by the police in Ekiti State over allegations of financial impropriety made against him by the Fayemi-led APC government.
“He has made his statement, describing all the allegations as false, frivolous and politically motivated.
“He is waiting for further action by the police, who may be taking directives from the state government.
“The worse is being expected though and it can’t be worse than what was done to him by this same Fayemi’s government on October 8, 2012.
“Nigerians should, however, be rest assured that Lere Olayinka won’t be silenced, he won’t be intimidated” he said.
