He stated that the name of the persons who posted the news on Ekiti Eleven Club Whatsapp is Oska Seyi Ayeleso and Oluwaseun Famiodu. He then said the case with reg no SC 205/2019 and SC 206/2019 was adjourned to 18th of April, 2019 for justification and added that “Curiously, the social media was awash by noon on Wednesday, April 3, 2019, that the Supreme Court had rendered its judgement in favour of Dr Kayode Fayemi, the incumbent Governor of Ekiti State.”
He further claimed that his investigation revealed that others who also allegedly posted the news in the social media including one Odebunmi Idowu who made a Facebook posting at 12:33 pm on April 3. He said such things have happened twice before during the trial and the Appeal courts.
Adeniyi further added and connotes that:
“It behoves me as counsel to draw the attention of their Lordships at the Supreme Court to this development, but I shall refrain from doing so for now. If your client and his social media people/supporters do not cease and desist; I shall ensure that my client harvests all these offensive posts and forward same to the Supreme Court.” So far it is not known if R. O Balogun & Co had responded.
He said that the Fayemi supporters have already been celebrating his victory when actually the day for the judgement to be aired has not come and implored the Supreme court to do something about it.
