Governor Ayodele Fayose warns Masquerades in the State

Published

on

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele  Fayose has warned masqueraders who engage in disrupting the peace of the public.

The governor, who gave the warning at a press conference in Ado Ekiti, said any masquerader caught beating people or attacking those in worship houses would henceforth be publicly unveiled and arrested.

Fayose condemned the recent attack on a worship house in Ikun Ekiti, describing the incident as unfortunate and barbaric.

He said the masquerade festival being held in the community was meant to be a fiesta through which residents, especially children, would be entertained and not one to unleash violence on residents.

There was violence in Ikun Ekiti on May 30 as masqueraders attacked the worship house.

No fewer than five of the worshippers were said to have sustained varying degrees of injury.

Fayose, however, enjoined all residents of the state to continue to live together in peace, especially now that the 2018 governorship election was drawing nearer.

On the relocation of a shrine in Ikere-Ekiti to pave way for the dualization of the township road, Fayose said that he had ordered the release of N1 million to execute the task.
