The PDP goons & perpetrators in the video are; (1) Sanya Adesua alias Pero- Commissioner I, Ekiti State Civil Service Commission (ESCSC); (2) Bolanle Bruce (female) Snr. Special Asst to Gov.

You were in a Niger Delta wear. Answer me now it’s a question. You were driving in a…kiloruko Motor yiii oooo ……Golf.”

But the journalist wasn’t in Ekiti at that time and his negative response only earned him more beating from his tormentors while Bola Bruce supervised & enjoyed d scene. (3) ‘Pastor’ Yemi Olayinka- A PDP Chairmanship aspirant 4 Ado-Ekiti Local Govt in the Local Govt Elections of 2008. He was defeated in the primaries by Mrs Tosin Aluko. He appeared in the video in a multi-coloured Ankara fabric and he wore glasses. He was laughing heartily while the journalists were being beaten mercilessly. Yemi Olayinka is also a member of Ekitipanupo online forum. (4) Olu Ojo–A strong member of d PDP from Ifaki shown in the video wearing a hat & slapped one of the journalists towards the end of the video when they were asked to carry their shoes on their heads.


Olu Ojo is fat with a robust cheek (5) Femi Ijakoko- He is Gov Segun Oni’s thug & until recently, was second in Command to Erinmoje. He’s since taken over as no one. He was wearing a flowing buba & sokoto (Milk colour). He bites one of the journalists as a lion would tear its prey. He interrogated them by asking the question.- ” And you, what is your business in that place that I saw you?. If you provoke me I will blast your head…!”

(6) Femi aka Akilapa- A PDP thug of no fixed address. He was shown in the video wearing a multi coloured ‘buba’ & ‘sokoto’ adire fabric. He was most vicious in the video as he played the role of a professional slap-giver. He was the one shouting on the journalists, “kneel down! Kneel down!” source1, source2

    If all these are true, then we are in a state of anarchy in Nigeria. How can leaders use their authorities as weapon of brutality and suppression when it should have been channelled towards human development. Well, illigality begets illigality. They came by fraud, so they have to operate by fraud but, the people will tarry along with patient until that desired change comes their way and its irreversible.

    I hate being called a Nigerian,I live and work in China,but i have to claim i am an American,and i have to hide my Nigerian passport all the time because when you tell people you are a Nigerian ,they dont want to associate with you,so where is the pride of being a Nigerian?all our leaders should go ang jump into the lagoon,because they have failed.

    Ikeoluwa, i dont know your age or where you were born but let me tell this;Pretending to be someone else does not change who you are. What sacrifice are you willing to make, to make this country better? How many Chinese have you told that the bad eggs in our midst do not a make up 20% of our population? How many have you told about our cultural & religious diversity or the efforts certain individuals are making to make this country better? You sit in China and expect us to fix Nigeria for you . Smart indeed.

    The Ekiti story is a sad one which portrays us in bad light. I however beleive that we can change the attitude of our politicians by persistent & constructive criticism of their activities.
