Fayose escapes death

30

Former governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayo Fayose, yesterday escaped death by the whiskers when his driver, Mr. Nathaniel Saliu, and his vehicle were attacked by a group of people whose identities were unknown as at press time between Ilupeju-Ekiti and Ire-Ekiti in Ekiti State.

Fayose, who was said to have traveled to Abuja for a political meeting, sent his driver back to Ado-Ekiti before the vehicle and the driver were attacked by the hoodlums.

Narrating his ordeal to newsmen on telephone yesterday evening in Ado-Ekiti, Saliu said the incident happened between 11am and 12noon while he was coming from Abuja to Ado-Ekiti.

According to him, he was coming from Abuja where he had gone to drop his boss, Fayose, at the airport, until he got to Ilupeju on his way to Ire-Ekiti when he noticed one white Hilux van with about six occupants trailing his jeep with registration number ADC 11 AY (Abuja).  He said that initially, he did not feel threatened until they both got to a place where there were several potholes and his vehicle could not move faster.

It was at this point, according to him, that the white Hilux blocked his way and four hefty men suddenly came down from the vehicle and started beating him and asking repeatedly: “Where is your boss, Fayose?.

He said after a while, when they discovered that Fayose was not inside the vehicle, they went back to their vehicle and told others in the vehicle that truly Fayose was not there.

According to Saliu, immediately after the incident, he went to Oke-Ila Police Station at about 2pm to lodge complaint.

Reacting to the incident, Fayose, who condemned the act, describe it as purely an attempt on his life.

He therefore called on the police and other security operatives to rise to the challenge before the situation gets out of hand.

It would be recalled that in the last one week, Fayose has been having problem with hoodlums, who disrupted his political meetings within the state.

  2. When fayose surported ACN he is good man,when he now decide to return to his party now u are afta his life.dis is a wrong signal.we know what fayose can do.i Fear 4 d state if he want to retalate it ll be bloody.

  3. Tin tin nabulations on

    If Ekiti decides to kill or maim their because of political rivalry, they will live to regret it. Challenge via ideas is a tonic in every competition & to think otherwise is most primitive.

    Fayose should not be made to go into what he knew best to do or else ekiti state will be ungovernable. The ACN thought they are at their best now, but not knowing that they are laying the foundation of disaster in Ekiti state. Fayose is a typical street boy and knows his way around if he decides to play rough. This is one of the bad sides of OBJ, heb never forgives, but the end result of his bad behaviors is what we now see in both Ekiti and Ogun states.

  5. It is all a game to discredit the ruling party in Ekiti State, This has been Fayose style of attractin attention.. however i dnt blame him, bcos i was disappointed with the way he was betrayed on his senatorial ambition by the ACN after helping fayemi to win the gvnrship re-run. Pay back time.

  6. SO THIS HAPPENING IN THE STATE NOW GOVERNED BY JOHN KAYODE FAYEMI, A SUPPOSEDLY HIGHLY URBANE AND POLISHED CHARACTER; IN A STATE RUN BY ACN, A SUPPOSEDLY SAINTLY PARTY IN NIGERIA. IT IS UNBELIEVABLE !

    THE CHALLENGE NOW IS BEFORE THE COMMISSIONER OF POLICE IN EKITI STATE. HE SHOULD LET US KNOW WHO IS IN CHARGE: IS THE “State Police” THAT ARE NOW DISRUPTING FAYOSE’S RALLY AND MOVEMENT AND THREATENING HIS LIFE OR THE “FEDERAL” POLICE UNDER HIM IN EKITI. HAS THE “State Police” OVERWHELMED HIM AND HIS MEN ? PLEASE COMMISSIONER IN CHARGE OF FEDERAL POLICE IN EKITI SHOULD LET US KNOW.

    • Fayose knows the people that are after him, they are in pdp with him. He’s a threat to a faction of pdp in ekiti not to acn

  7. This is pure southwest politics……killing of opposition…..dnt 4get Funsho Williams waz killed bcos they see him as a threat likwise Dipo Dina…nd i ask when will south west stop political killing?

  8. fayose can arrange for this kind of thingh himself and lay the blame on the govt. we know him now. is he the only one contesting?

  9. Yorubas did not love themselves only pretending to be so. Yorubas has killed many of their leaders in Nigeria. Bola Ige, funsho Williams, kudirat Abiola, they sabotaged MKO Abiola to death,how many re my going to mention, the records re endless. D love killing innocent citizens at roundomly even in official work they will kill their colleaques in a quest for swapping positions with their magical voodoos. That,s how they destroyed talents in that banana country called Nigeria. Yorubas doesn’t value human life at all, that,s why u can see them holding brief for a common murderer called Obafemi Awolowo that killed three million Igbos 42 yrs ago with impunity.

    It is realy very sad that in this 21st century we have not learned how to conduct political affairs.Even in the first republic we enjoyed politics of ideas and pursuation.Thats why today you hear quotes of what Dr. Mbadiwe, Dr.Nnandi Azikiwe, Alhj.Waziri etc. said.They tolerated opposition and swayed people by pursuation.But now because most politicians of today are poorly educated,(never mind their degrees).they have not much to offer,and cant even communicate effectively.Because they are cerebrally poorly equipped they resort to primitive means of killing or maiming their opponents.The other day the ACN went to America to witness political conventions.What did they bring back?Polical intolerance? No, let the eagle perch and let the falcon perch.The one that dont want the other to perch let his wings break.Thats what our elders say. Allow Fayose to also perch.

  11. I will ask some questions.How did know fayose,s car come back to ekiti state.How can one proof this is not frame up to get attentions.This happen on motor way no one witness it.Please try another way.Let me say it i grow up with fayose at ibadan i know him so much.I am not a member of any party .I do not live in nigeria.This is far from the truth,try other things.

  12. God bles u polish. I tink no one wil trace dis threat beyond d state pdp. Cos d rulling faction see him as threat dem. Rememba he contestd 4 d post national sec. of d party where he lost, and it was d same election dat brought in segun oni as one of d party machineries controlling d party in d southwest. I dont tink we can trace dis 2 acn @all.

    People should face the truth and stop connecting ACN to this attack, Fayose is not a threat to ACN or to Fayemi,his political carrier is almost deemed so why should ACN be after him?

  14. If you are not familiar with Ekiti politics please, do not comment on this. If the news is true, then Fayose is reaping what he sowed.During Adebayo (1999-2003), Fayose stated his campaign immediately after the inauguration in 1999.The reverse was the case when Fayose came to power,he did allow anybody to campaign until he was removed.He killed some of ours sons lobby to take his position among them was Daramola.Before his tenure, AD,PDP can win Chairmanship,councillor but during his tenure, he used his thugs and himself won all the chairmen,councillors for PDP against peoples which.The tactics he used then to attract people with cheap publicity can not work this time.I believe the whole thing was planned by him.Fayose was not accepted in PDP fold.If Fayose should win PDP primary then,PDP should forget winning Ekiti again. Everybody knows that,even the Obas will not allow him to rule us again he does not has the charisma to be the governor of Ekiti again.Let all the parties fill in good candidates not people like Fayose, we know him in and out unlike 2003 when he came in.He personally introduced thuggery into Ekiti politics via Baba in Ota and he will reap by the grace of God.Can you imagine the whole Governor(Fayose) using horse wipe to beat opponent representatives during chairmanship election?It happened during his tenure.

  15. Most u pple here are bias,Bola Akin u are not leaving in 9ja beleive it if dey want u and return to 9ja from airport to ur house u can be attack witout telling d enemyu dat u ar coming.in a wk dis is d third term such tin ll happen to him.oye,ilawe now ire.everybody know fayose.but we want peace they should not@encourage him on what he know bes…..peace peace peace

  16. I don’t want Fayose to come and heat up the politics in Ekiti state I don’t see any clear different ideology between PDP and ACN,because you can find both parties in a single family where husband will be PDP,then wife will be in ACN or vise versa and they live peaceful with each other.The road Ilupeju-Ire has been in bad state right from his regime,then Oni and this present regime.I advise the youths of Ekiti not fall into cheap hand of these policians using them as thugs. Let the two political parties namely ACN and PDP fill in good candidates for the next election like our sister’s state Ondo did in last October 20 election.Akeredolu,Mimiko and Oke are good candidates any day,any time. Ure Ekiti ase oju wa oooo.Amin

  17. Can’t Fayose and other Nigerian politicians have something else to do apart from violent/lawless politics aka ATIKU, IBB, OBJ, TINUBU, BOKO HARAM etc Let all of them concentrate in farming and food processing for Gods sake. Police and Military should stop providing cover for these shameless ex this and ex that. Do your politics on the internet, radio, tv by giving your audence details about your programmes and background. Stop parading SUVs, JEEPS, ABUJA houses.

  18. Fayoooooooose!! Has inec given go-ahead on Ekiti2014? Do you want to get more police details than other ex-guvs like niyi adebayo or segun oni? When are u going to leave 419 biz?d
