According to the JDPI, 'we have it on records from the declarations of Professor Abel Idowu Olayinka, the Vice Chancellor of the University of Ibadan, who was returning officer for the election on 15th July as follows:
Among the political parties that participated in the election, JDPI said the political parties it was calling for their de-registration did not score up to 25 per cent and attached a copy of its analysis of the election results 'as one of the accredited domestic observers of the elections.'
The JDPI said it was obvious from its records as one of the accredited observers of the election that 'the local government with the least votes cast was Ilejemeje and the 25 per cent of the votes cast therein ought to be 2,097, which is even more than the total votes received by each of the participating political parties except All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).'
JDPI said the incident occurred on November 26th, 2017, saying 'the victim was babysitting the baby of the respondent (Mrs Abgundu) and in the course of feeding the baby, the victim took a spoon of the baby's food and ate.'
JDPI said when it received the report of the incident, its officials visited the community as well as the traditional ruler, Oba Isaac Adetoyinbo Ajayi, saying 'the Elejelu of Ijelu-Ekiti confirmed the report and further informed us that he has notified the Divisional Police officer of Ilupeju-Ekiti of the incident and the latter sent officers to arrest the respondent a day after the incidence was reported at the palace.'
According to the JDPI director, 'we took further step of visiting the health centre for verification and questioning', and further explained that the officials of the centre as well as the relatives of the victim all confirmed the incident.
The JDPI lamented that the five-year-old had been a victim of 'frequent inhuman and degrading treatments,' saying 'we took a closer look at the victim to confirm the incidence of maltreatment, child abuse and molestation.'
JDPI also alleged that Mrs Abgundu 'was released barely few hours after her arrest and boastfully roams the streets of Ijelu-Ekiti freely and in peace as if nothing happend while the victim is neither able to walk nor sit well and still groans in much pains and discomfort.'
