One person nearly broke my head in Ekiti -Ex-Gov Fayose


Former Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, says his head was nearly broken in an attempted attack on him on as he left the House of Assembly in Ado Ekiti.

Fayose said, “It was on our way from the assembly that some people trailed us in a pick-up  purposely to attack us. We managed to escape. In short, one of them nearly broke my head.”

The former governor, who said he came to honour the Assembly’s invitation because “a clear conscience fears no accusation”, said, “When I got to the Assembly, they said they were not ready and that they would inform me when they were ready. As a matter of fact, since they accused me of financial misappropriation, they were supposed to be ready.”

The Ekiti state parliament had summoned Fayose; a former speaker of the house, Kola Oluwawole; a former chair of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria, Dapo Olagunju; a former commissioner for Local Government Affairs, Kola Kolade; and the 16 local government chairmen elected during Fayose’s tenure over allegations of misappropriation of funds.

The former governor said to journalists, “I got this by noon yesterday (Thursday) and I called the speaker to confirm whether it was true and he confirmed it. You know my style. When the EFCC (Economic and Financial Crimes Commission) wanted me

Spokesperson for Ekiti speaker, Tai Oguntayo, said in a statement, “After the resolution of the assembly at the plenary on Thursday inviting the former governor to appear before the house, he called the speaker to confirm if the report was true.(Saharareporters)
