The PDP in Ekiti state has accused the federal government of plotting to kill a member of the Ekiti state House of Assembly, Afolabi Akanni.

According to Premium Times, the party in a statement signed by its publicity secretary, Jackson Adebayo, on Sunday, March 20 in Ado-Ekiti berated the government for failing to release, Afolabi Akanni, despite the state government’s outcry against the violation of his human rights.

It said there was reason to believe that the aim of Akanni’s arrest was to ensure he died in detention because the government has refused to release him in the face of his failing health.

The party said: “The DSS itself failed to explain what the breach was, whether it was something in the make of the Boko Haram insurgency in some parts of the country or the agitation by Biafran people.”

“The DSS or any other agent of the government owed a lot of explanations on the matter because the arrest of Akanni and his continued detention despite his failing health is wicked.

Then we want to ask when and where did he commit the security breach and of what injury does it have on the nation that the Federal Government should arrest and detain him without trial for several weeks and many other questions are crying for urgent and accurate answers.”

According to the party, the claim of the Fayose administration that the lawmaker representing Efon, Afolabi Akanni, has died in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) was an attempt to blackmail the federal government, The Nation reports.
