"People With Evil Minds" Set PDP Secretariat In Ado-Ekiti On Fire


Ekiti State - Peoples Democratic Party's secretariat in Ajilosun area of Ekiti State capital Ado-Ekiti was set on fire in early hours of Tuesday.
It was learnt that a number of unknown persons gained access to the building, forcibly entered the Chairman's office and set in on fire. The fire affected a section of the first floor of the secretariat, as various party documents and files were reportedly consumed by the flames.
According to eyewitnesses, local residents raised the alarm, and the consequences could have been devastating if not for the timely intervention of local fire department.
The security has since been beefed up around the vicinity of the building, as armed policemen have cordoned the area off.
The cause of the incident is yet to be determined, but the Police Public Relations Officer of the State Victor Babayemi said the matter is being looked into.
Director of Publicity for PDP, Kola Kolawole, said only people with "evil minds" can be responsible for the incident.
It is worth noting that the incident comes only days after the PDP chose former governor Ayo Fayose as their candidate for the June 21 governorship election in Ekiti State.
