Ayodele Fayose has raised alarm over armed police officers blocking the entrance of the Government House, accusing them of shooting their firearms.
The governor took to his Twitter account (@GovAyoFayose) on Wednesday, July 11, 2018, to accuse the All Progressives’ Congress (APC) of using the officers to intimidate his government ahead of the state’s July 14 gubernatorial election.
He first tweeted, “This is the entrance to Ekiti Govt House now blocked by gun wielding mobile policemen. The plan is to prevent our victory walk slated for today but we will remain undeterred. Power of God and the people will prevail over Federal Power.”
Minutes later, he posted again, “Heavy shooting now going on in front of Ekiti Govt house by armed policemen brought by the APC.”
The governor has on several occasions accused the APC of using the influence of the federal government to intimidate and victimise his government ahead of the election.
