Members of the Ekiti State House of Assembly told the House of Representatives on Thursday that four of their colleagues were still missing.

They said the lawmakers went missing after the March 4 invasion of the Assembly premises by operatives of the Department of State Services.

The lawmakers, who were led by the Chairman, House Committee on Information, Youth and Sports, Mr. Gboyega Aribisogan, described the invasion as “criminal.”

They demanded the release of the members, alleging that it was part of a “sinister attempt” to remove the state governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, from office just like it was done back in 2006.

Presenting their case to the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Mr. Leo Ogor, the Ekiti lawmakers vowed to resist any move to “coerce” the Assembly to impeach Fayose.

Aribisogan added, “We will resist any sinister attempt to unseat our governor.

“The governor has done well and no member of the House will be coerced into signing an impeachment notice against Fayose.

“If our colleagues committed any offence, they should be arraigned before a court of competent jurisdiction for prosecution.”
