The convoy of Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi was on Monday attacked in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital by suspected thugs working for the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Mr Ayo Fayose.
The attack occurred around 6pm when the Governor and his supporters were returning to Ado-Ekiti from a campaign rally in Ekiti East Local Government Area of the state. The thugs numbering about 100 suddenly emerged from Fayose’s Campaign Office, throwing stones and bottles at the Governor’s vehicle and vehicles belonging to members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who accompanied the Governor on the campaign tour.
The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Olayinka Oyebode, said in a statement that but for the Governor who restrained his security aides and party supporters from retaliating, there would have been some casualties in the attack that lasted a few minutes.
