Nigerians in Diaspora Monitoring Group (NDMG) has blasted Ayodele Fayose and the Ekiti state government for spreading dangerous rumours.

It also called on the state government to apologize to the Department of State Services (DSS) for raising false alarm that Akanni Afolabi, a member of Ekiti state House of Assembly, was killed in their custody.

Vanguard reports that members of the group expressed their opinion in a statement made by Comrade Philip Agbese.

According to NDMG, the campaign of dangerous rumour-mongering spearheaded by Governor Fayose marked a new low in political irresponsibility.

Agbese stressed that politicians who rush to town with such unconfirmed stories are tarnishing the image of Nigeria both at home and abroad. He added that such irresponsible statements and rumours could have sparked a widespread breakdown of the law and triggered nationwide violence.

“In addition to the DSS, other security and intelligence agencies in the land should review events around this rumour, which was actively and knowingly spread, against earlier threats by Fayose that he can bring down the present federal government at will.

“While the Ekiti state governor enjoys immunity by virtue of his office, the other people that went down this path of infamy with him should be made to account for their action of maliciously trying to bring instability down on Nigeria.

“Even when Fayose cannot be arrested or tried alongside his minions, the government of Ekiti state must apologise to the DSS, Nigerians and the Federal Government for spreading falsehood targeted at diminishing our security agencies that are out to ensure every citizen is protected from bloodthirsty politicians who derive pleasure in abusing their privileges,” the statement read in part.

The group called on the DSS to charge the accused Ekiti lawmaker to court as soon as it concludes the investigation.

Meanwhile, for allegedly employing lies and falsehoods to create tension in the country.

According to the party, the claim of the Fayose administration that Akanni died in DSS custody was an attempt to blackmail the federal government.
