A statement signed by Wole Olujobi said, "This is not the first time Fayose is raising false alarm like this. When Fayose raises this kind of alarm, you can be sure that death is lurking in the corner to take off his enemy by his own thugs and blame the murder on the opposition.

"This is exactly the same way his media men raised the alarm on August 12, 2006 that security report had indicated that the opposition was planning the murder of a prominent politician and blame the murder on him in order to destabilise his administration.
