Supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) fled for their lives at Fajuyi park in Ado Ekiti the state capital on wednesday, July 11 having heard that security operatives were firing gunshots into the air.
NPBS gather that the dispersed PDP members at the the venue of the party’s rally ahead of the governorship election in the state ran for their lives when the police reportedly fired gunshots into air.
The Executive governor, His Excellency Ayodele Peter Fayose attempted to lead the supporters back to the park but the move was thwarted by security operatives who reportedly fired gunshots into the air again. The development resulted in the relocation of the rally to the government House premises, where Governor Ayodele Peter Fayose and other PDP leaders are expected to address the party members.
Joshak Habila, the Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) in charge of Operations, have confirmed the incident. Habila explained that the move by the law enforcement agents was to prevent a breakdown of law and order in the state capital and other parts of Ekiti ahead of the July 14 governorship election.
