Ado-Ekiti indigenes: Fayose Turned Us To Refugees In Our Land
Comments Off on Ado-Ekiti indigenes: Fayose Turned Us To Refugees In Our Land | | November 29, 2018 1:47 PM

The former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has been accused by Residents of Ijoka Community in Ado-Ekiti of reducing them to refugees in their own land through the demolition exercise carried out by his administration.

The residents of the community claimed that their properties were demolished without prior notification, alleging they were not compensated for their lost properties, while those compensated were paid monies far below the value of their properties.

According to reports, the former governor allegedly destroyed residents ancestral buildings where certain traditional rites were performed in Ado Ekiti which they claimed had negative effect on their tradition and custom.

The Ijoka elders and other residents of the community made the revelations during a courtesy visit to the Deputy Governor, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi.

The community leaders said some of the house owners died as a result of their inability to recover from the shock that resulted from the demolition.

They, however, sought the assistance of the state government for their compensation to be paid adding that their demands for compensation from Fayose did materialise before he left office on October 15.

One of the community leaders, Joseph Fagbuaro, said Fayose gave them several appointments to meet on the issue of compensation which the ex-governor did not honour until the expiration of his tenure.

To many, the demolition of the buildings had rendered many members of the community, especially the aged despondent and destitute as they now move from one rented apartment to the other.
