Detained Lawmaker Dies in DSS Custody, Says Ekiti Govt

Olakiitan Victor in Ado Ekiti

The alleged  invasion of the State House of Assembly by men of the Department of State Services reached a feverish pitch on Thursday as the government of Ekiti State  announced that a member of the State House of Assembly, Hon. Afolabi  Akanni, has died in the custody of the security agency.

Akanni, representing Efon constituency , was arrested on March 4, when the DSS allegedly invaded the assembly for undisclosed reason.

He was immediately whisked to Abuja where he had since been detained, in  spite of the ruling of the Federal High Court, Ado Ekiti, delivered by Justice Taiwo Taiwo , ordering the DSS to either release him with immediate effect or produce him in court on Wednesday, March 16.


At an emergency press conference in Ado Ekiti by Information
Commissioner, Mr Lanre Ogunsuyi, the government insisted that the lawmaker developed an ailment midnight of Thursday and died at dawn.

Those that addressed the conference include: The speaker of the assembly, Hon Kola Oluwawole, Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr Ajayi Owoseeni, Special Assistant on Communications to the governor, Lere Olayinka and Akanni’s lawyer, Barr Obafemi Adewale.

  3. AND WHAT NEXT? HOPE THE AGILE GOVERNOR OF EKITI STATE WILL UTILIZE THE FULL LEGAL RIGHT TO SUE THIS AGENT OF DARKNESS WORKING FOR THE FED GOVT FOR MURDER AND EXTRA JUDICIAL KILLING OF ONE OF ITS SUBJECT. NIGERIAN SECURITY AGENTS ARE NOW TAKING THE LIVES OF INNOCENT CITIZENS THEY ARE BEING PAID TO PROTECT. BUHARI HAS A CASE TO ANSWER FOR HIS PRONOUNCED HUMAN RIGHT ABUSE SINCE THE INCEPTION OF THIS ADMINISTRATION.
