President Jonathan Orders Soldiers To Ambush & Chase Governor Amaechi’s Convoy Away From Ekiti State…
Rivers State Governor Stopped From Campaigning For Kayode Fayemi
Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi went through hell yesterday in the hand of some selected soldiers allegedly sent from Abuja to prevent him from entering Ekiti State.
Amaechi was on his way to Ado Ekiti to attend the final rally of APC Governorship Kayode Fayemi ahead of the gubernatorial election on Saturday.
Also, the helicopter chartered to fly Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole to Ado Ekiti was yesterday grounded by the military.
This is coming barely 24 hours after a plot to impeach Governor Amaechi by six lawmakers in Rivers State House of Assembly was exposed.
Amaechi’s aircraft landed at the Akure Airport, from where he joined his convoy for the road journey to Ado-Ekiti. He was stopped by soldiers on Akure/Ekiti Road, who prevented him from entering Ekiti State.
It was gathered that Amaechi had turned back, to return to Akure, when the soldiers chased after his convoy and intercepted it. The governor later drove himself to Lagos when it was obvious the soldiers would not let him proceed on his journey to Ado-Ekiti.
He first raised the alarm on Thursday when he took to Twitter to say: “Waylaid by soldiers on Akure/Ekiti Road. Threatening to shoot me. Chased me to a village called Olorunsogo Ilado in Ondo State. They have allowed the Minister of State for Defence and Minister of Police to go through.”
Na wao….when will Jonathan stop these unnecessary political attacks?
He is busy campaigning for re-election and fighting APC leaders while the over 276 abducted Chibok girls are suffering in Boko Haram camps. What a misplaced priority!
