Detained Ekiti Lawmaker Dies – Govt

The Ekiti State government has said that a member of the state’s House of Assembly, Hon. Afolabi Akanni is dead.

Since March 4, Ekiti State government has been accusing the Department of State Services (DSS) of detaining Hon. Akanni, and on Thursday in a press conference, it was said that the alleged detainee has passed on in the custody of the intelligence agency.

According to the state Commissioner for Information, Youth Sports and Culture, Mr. Lanre Ogunsuyi, “Our contacts in the DSS told us that he is dead.

“We were told that he developed an ailment last night and he died by morning. The DSS had denied him access to his family, his doctor or to anyone that knows him.

“We call on the DSS to immediately clarify the situation as to the status (dead or alive) of Hon. Afolabi Akanni, representing Efon Constituency by producing him physically for all Nigerians, particularly his immediate family to see.

“While we are waiting for the DSS, we urge every resident of Ekiti State, particularly the people of his immediate constituency in Efon, to remain calm.”
