Some youth in Ondo State have asked the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu to arrest a former state Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Mr Isaac Kekemeke, over hate speech.
The youths made this known during a protest on Friday over a comment made by the APC chieftain that his party will use armed thugs to rig Ondo Governorship Election and cause violence during the exercise.
According to them, Kekemeke’s statement had shown that the ruling party had plans to cause violence in the state during the forthcoming election.
Speaking on behalf of the youth, Mr Oluwatuyi Adekanbi, said there was a need to call Kekemeke to order to avoid violence and crisis in the state during the election.
He said, “We call on the Federal Government mostly the President, Muhammadu Buhari, to come to the aid of Ondo State.
“We won’t allow anyone to be killed in the state because of an election. We don’t want any thug to be dragged into this election.
“We won’t allow anyone to bring militant to Akure or the state to cause trouble because we won’t take it.
“We are equally using this medium to warn that nothing must happen to anyone in the state particularly Akure indigenes during the poll.
“If anything untoward like shooting, killings happen in the election, we are calling on the IGP to hold Mr Kekemeke responsible for it.
“He has threatened our people with militants but they would be resisted with full force and we mean it.”
