Ekiti govt denies Fayemi convoy attack on Ondo traveller

The Ekiti state government has released an update on the alleged attack on an Ondo traveler by security operative attached to the Governor’s convoy.

According to earlier reports, the convoy of Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi on Wednesday assaulted and brutalised a man, Dapo Oshituyo in Akure, Ondo State.

According to the man, Fayemi was in the convoy and witnessed the lawless “rule of might and harassment exhibited” against him.

He added that his vehicle was also damaged by the security details of the governor.

“This is what the convoy of Governor Fayemi did to me at Roadblock junction in Akure on our way to Sagamu; they did all these to my car and the governor was inside the car. Governor Fayemi was inside the car while they beat me. Look at my glasses as well, it’s broken.

“This happened on our way from Abuja to Ogun State. My car was destroyed by the mobile police officers and aides attached to him.

“I got my white robes torn right in his presence, blows and boots freely rained on us at Akure. Our country needs serious prayers,” Oshituyo said.

But now the state government has denied the reports, stating that it was the driver who was reckless, and actually caused an accident that affected the vehicle designated for the Governor.

The statement signed by Yinka Oyebode, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Ekiti State, also stated that Fayemi was not in the convoy as at the time of the incident. The statement read;

In the process of dangerously overtaking the convoy of vehicles, he was faced with an oncoming truck from the opposite direction of the road which forced him to swerve dangerously into the convoy – an action which caused a minor accident that affected one of the vehicles usually reserved for the Governor. Mr. Oshituyi further sped off into another direction breaching public safety and almost causing another accident along the route.
