Fayose’s wife alleges harassment by SSS


Wife of suspended governor of Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Ayo Fayose, has alleged harassment by men of the State Security Services (SSS).

Wife of suspended governor of Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Ayo Fayose, has alleged harassment by men of the State Security Services (SSS).

According to Mrs Feyisetan Fayose, who spoke through the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mr Idowu Adelusi, overzealous officials of the security agency had, in the last one week, visited churches where she worshipped, apparently looking for Dr. Fayose.

Her alarm is coming on the heels of a report that some men, suspected to be SSS officers, besieged a praying centre, where Mrs Fayose worshipped on Sunday, disrupting the service and sending pastors and worshippers scampering.

Mrs Fayose alleged that the security agents had been invading churches, where she worshipped, harassing pastors and their households. She wondered why security operatives should be after her.

She was particularly irked by the violation of the sanctity of religious houses, stressing: "I think churches are supposed to be like an embassy, which should not just be swooped on anyhow by security agents. But the overzealous operatives have consistently been attacking some churches where I worship anytime I am in Ibadan, harassing the pastors, their household and worshippers under the guise of looking for me.
"Each time they carry out their nefarious activities, they will subject the pastors and their household to physical and psychological torture, scatter their houses, march on their properties and leave threatening messages," she stated.

Mrs. Fayose said she had voluntarily released all necessary information on her movement and how she could be contacted by the security operatives if needed.
She said she needed to raise the alarm to let the public know what she has been going through and for the relevant authorities to call their men to order "before they incur the wrath of God through the various men of God that have suffered harassment in their hands."
