Ekiti state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on the chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Ekiti , Jide Awe to surrender himself for trial since a Federal High Court in Jos had vacated order that restrained the police from arresting him.
In a statement signed by the State Secretary of the PDP, Dr Tope Aluko and the made available to journalist s in Ado Ekiti on Thursday the party said that if the APC boss has no skeleton in his cupboard there is no need for him to be running from pillar to post in order to evade arrest by the security agents.
Dr Aluko stressed that Chief Jide Awe could only prove his innocence in the court of law instead of looking for short cut to escape justice by seeking some frivolous injunctions around the country.
According to him by going to Jos to prevent his murder case in Ekiti State, the APC chairman has proved that he has something hidden which he believe will be easily exposed if he should surrender himself for trial.i
The PDP scribe called on the police to swing into action and effect the arrest of the opposition party chairman and others who were standing trial on the murder of late Ayo Jeje and Madam Adewumi who were both shot at Erijiyan Ekiti before they run away again.
