Tension is brewing in Ekiti presently as palpable fear and anger have enveloped the people after governor of the state was allegedly beaten, tear gassed and dragged on the floor by security men who had occupied the gates of the governor’s office since Tuesday when President Mohammadu Buhari came to the state for mega rally of the All Progressive Congress.
Posters displaying PDP candidates were torn at the Fajuyi park and replaced with those of APC candidate.
The governor who wore bandage on the neck and hands, managed to speak with teeming supporters who marched to the governor’s office to sympathize with him.
The governor suddenly fainted after briefly addressing the people and that further angered them as they cursed and rained verbal invectives on the opposition and candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Kayode Fayemi
Trouble started when Fayose, leading thousands of supporters in a victory walk he had announced to hold in Ado Ekiti some days ago, approached some stern looking armed policemen to demand why they were preventing people to mass at the campaign venue in Fajuyi pavilion.
Responding, security men allegedly teargassed him and many others, and shot sporadically in the air.
