Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has on Friday May 15, 2015, appealed to the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase, to stem the spate of kidnappings in the state.

In the letter dated May 15, 2015 and signed by the governor, he said that the IG’s special intervention was necessary to assure the people of their safety, following high rate of abductions of innocent people.
The governor, according to his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, also allayed the fear of the people, saying the situation would soon be put under control.

The letter reads in part: “It is with great concern that I am appealing to you to help in our quest for a lasting solution to the spate of kidnappings and abductions in our dear state. The development has created fear
in the minds of our people and no meaningful development can take place under such atmosphere.

“As a responsible government, we are taking all necessary steps to curtail and end these dastardly acts, and we believe a special attention from your office on the matter to our state would no doubt, lead to finding a quick solution to the problem.”

There have been instances of the police authorities paying special attention to any part of the country whenever the need arises.

Only recently, Arase sent a special team of policemen to Edo State to help in curbing the outbreak of cult war among various groups in the state.
