Former Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose escapes assassination

Ayo Fayose

The Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose narrowly escaped death on Tuesday night along Ado Ekiti - Afao road when his car was shot at by unknown gunmen.

This was made know in a statement by Ayo Fayose Campaign Organisation, AFCO, and signed by the Campaign Director General, Mr. Owoseni Ajayi.

According to the statement, the former governor was trailed by the suspected assassins at about 9 p.m. in a white Hilux van with green number plate at a point close to Fayose Housing Estate.

Fayose's driver, noticed that a vehicle was trailing them and immediately alerted his boss who was the only one with him in the car.

"The driver immediately increased the car's speed and when the driver of the Hilux vehicle saw that they could not catch up with Fayose's car, they were said to have released four shots towards the ex-governor's vehicle. Seeing that Fayose had arrived Afao, his home-town, the Hilux van turned back."

"Earlier that day, Fayose received a call from somebody who called himself "Solar" telling him that he (Solar) was a life waster and that Fayose should expect a tough time ahead of 2014 election, but the former governor took the message for granted."

The AFCO DG, therefore, called on the police to take appropriate action before the state is turned into a theatre of war.

The police image maker in the state, Mr. Victor Babayemi, however, said he was yet to be officially briefed on the allegation.
