The Governor of Ekiti State Ayodele Fayose has said that there is heavy shooting now going on in front of Ekiti Govt house. Fayose on his Twitter handle tweeted that ‘This is the entrance to Ekiti Govt House now blocked by gun wielding mobile policemen. The plan is to prevent our victory walk slated for today but we will remain undeterred.’
Meanwhile, Ebony Herald international spoke with some residents of Oke Isha area of Ado Ekiti who told us, mobile policemen tear gas the group as they approach to town chanting abusive songs blocking movement of vehicles.
Members of APC in the state and the police claimed there is no approval for the walk and it is a plan to course another mayhem in the state.
