Ekiti State Police & PDP Eyewitnesses Fault Fayose Attack Claim “Nobody Beat His Excellency.. His Security Details Were With Him”

By Odunayo Ogunmola

Ekiti State ‘Man of the People’ Ayo Fayose sparked a huge controversy yesterday when he claimed that the police attacked him.

The governor claimed that the police shot at him and fired teargas that blinded him in Ado Ekiti, the state capital.

But the Police said the governor was not attacked.

They said policemen fired teargas to disperse a crowd of people after they had been advised not to hold a rally.

Reporters who were at the Police Headquarters rushed down to the Fajuyi Pavilion, venue of the planned rally when the news broke that the crowd was being dispersed.

A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) source claimed that Fayose was attending to complaints from members who had been denied access to the pavilion when a teargas canister fired from outside the Government House landed very close to him. The governor inhaled the teargas and went down, he said.

Asked if other people with the governor did not inhale the teargas, the source did not reply. He said Fayose was taken to the Government House Clinic.

The governor later emerged from the clinic with neck brace to address the crowd that gathered at the Government House.

Fayose alleged that he was slapped and kicked by a police officer. He also alleged that he had been ordered to be killed.

A source said the police did not enter the Government House, adding that “nobody beat His Excellency” who had his security details with him.

Deputy Governor and PDP candidate in Saturday’s election, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, also alleged that he was beaten by policemen.

The police said they stopped the PDP rally for security reasons and to maintain law and order.

Deputy Inspector General of of Police (Operations) Habila Joshak said the PDP neither sought for nor got permit for any rally.

Joshak said no unauthorised rally would be allowed in the state before Election Day on Saturday because of the prevailing security situation.

It was leant that the APC leadership wanted to organise a road show which the police declined to approve. It was promptly cancelled.

The Police Headquarters said “In furtherance to the presence of police officers around the Prof. Olusola Eleka pavilion at Fajuyi today (yesterday), two political parties intend to have their rally at the same date and in Ado-Ekiti metropolis but the commissioner of police advised the political parties in writing on the need to have theirn political activities at diferent time and because of the security implication.”

Prince Dayo Adeyeye, who defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) after the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primaries, described Fayose’s claim as the latest “stunt” from “a clownish dramatist.”

It was not clear yesterday why it was only the governor who inhaled the teargas and how he got his neck injured as he addressed the crowd at the Government House wearing a neck collar.

The Yoruba Council of Elders (YCE) called for peace in the state.

Interim Chairman Adeleye Agbede said: “Ekiti are a peace loving people with unrivalled passion for education and development.

He called on Fayose and Ex-Governor Kayode Fayemi “to caution their teeming supporters against violence.”

    • Even if the attack was real, that is law of karma. With FAYOSE expect anything, he is only seeking for sympathy.

  1. As much as i do not support any of these crooked politicians, the question still remains, why will this administration unleashed such number of armed enforcers in a so called democratic Nation while innocent people are left to be killed on daily basis in different part of Nigeria? same thing they did last time with their python dance but Nigeria borders are left open for Jihadists to be trooping in…..Nigeria as a Nation have lost it all and will soon become a history.

  2. you right brother but Nigeria can never become history if we stand up now to fight for it because it belong to you and me not their father’s mother’s or family personal property.hell no.the power is us and the weapons to restore the country and take back its lost glory if not and if Nigeria become history dear then we lose our home..any next real and brave fearless soldier with only fear of God that will be that country next head of state should have take out all the previous ones and their families without no wast of time and no hesitation then Nigeria will retrieve its glory without that they will not allow him to succeed

  3. Yes o!.
    A train left the rail track and hit Fayose, Several war ships also fired shots at him.
    Three F-15 jets were firing at Fayose.
    25 military tanks rained fire on him.
    25 Rocket launchers were discharged at Fayose.
    A B-52 bomber dropped 500lb bomb on Fayose’s head.
    He just managed to walk away crying like a bitch.
    How the war machines missed everyone else is still a mystery to us all.

  4. you can see the type of leaders we have in Nigeria, leaders cooking stories and telling lies to the world. The current leaders are not fit to govern this country and we those with iron hands to phase out these corrupt, dramatist, liars and wicked set of politicians. I won’t be surprised for the emergence of KAKI BOYS again to flush out this mess.

  5. Fayose and Dino, I am not sabi who is actor pass away each others. But the two both of you is actor pass away Jim Iyke and Ramsey Noah.

  6. Anybody that believes this thug of a person might as well believe Nigeria has won the world cup. He thinks people will forget what he did in 2014. Useless fellow.

  7. Fayose and his Awada kerikeri organization. Dino Melaye has passed unto Fayose a race Barton by wearing neck braces in order to attract sympathizers to win the forth coming election but unfortunately, that old trick won’t work again. Just imagine the type of leadership this guy will be if he takes over Ekiti State again. He had already seen the hand writing on the wall and the only option left for him is to stage drama in order to win. Even his own security guards debunks the allegation. Fayose just be a man and admit that, that is the end of your politiccal career. Nothing last forever. You cannot be a governor for ever. That is a fact.

  8. Please can you all answer this question. Is it not the same state the President and his party APC did their rally recently. Why stopping the opposition from their own rally. All politicians are the same. With this hardship people are still planning to vote for APC. My dear, this a shame.
