The convoy of Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, was on Monday attacked in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital by thugs suspected to be 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.

According to a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Olayinka Oyebode, 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 statement further read,
“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

“Some APC loyalists, however, sustained minor injuries in the melee, while some vehicles had their windscreens smashed by stones thrown by the
rampaging thugs.”

Monday’s incident came barely a week after the April 1 attack on some APC supporters by thugs also alleged to be
working for the PDP candidate along the Adebayo area of the state capital.
