“They are to henceforth conduct stop-and-search on any vehicle within the state

“There must be no activities of secret cults in any part of Ekiti State and there must not be students’ procession of any form.

“Anyone found to be culpable in this act of using cultists to cause anarchy in any part of the state will be dealt with decisively.

“This directive should, therefore, be strictly adhered to by all to avoid the consequences”, the statement said.

    Hear this rouge and thug governor. What is the difference between you (Fayose) and the cultist? You are only taking cover behind the so called cultist in order to suppress people’s right to protest peacefully. Were this order from the FG, Fayose would have opened his smelly loud mouth, spewing abusive remarks against President Buhari. Fayose should have demonstrated to the world that he is not like Buhari in terms human right issue.
