Violence erupts at PDP Victory Rally In Ekiti

Witnesses and reporting of heavy shooting and the use of tear gas by security officials dispersing a crowd of supporters of Governor Fayose who gathered in front of the Ekiti State government house in the state capital on Wednesday.

In the chaos which erupted at a PDP “Victory parade” ahead of Saturdays election, governor Fayose was reportedly hit with the butt of an officers gun causing him to collapse and pass out in a heap by the roadside.

However, other accounts attribute the eruption of the riot stagged by transpirters and have drivers over Governor Fayose’s failure to pay them the promised N10,000 after ordering them to park all commercial vehicles in the city at the government house and on secretariat premises in order to prevent them from transporting APC supporters turning out to welcome President Buhari on Tuesday.
