Ekiti Shooting: Bamidele Flown To UK In Tinubu’s Jet
A former member of the House of Representatives, Opeyemi Bamidele, has been flown to the United Kingdom for further treatment.
It was learnt that he was flown in a private jet belonging to a former Governor of Lagos State and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, on Friday night after receiving treatment at Euracare Multi-Specialists Hospital on Victoria Island, Lagos.
Bamidele and five others were shot at a reception rally organised for the All Progressives Congress candidate for the forthcoming Ekiti State governorship election, Kayode Fayemi, at the party’s secretariat in Ado Ekiti on June 1.
He was flown to Lagos last Sunday in an air ambulance after doctors at the Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, Ado Ekiti, extracted two bullets from his abdomen and leg.
Bamidele was said to have been flown to the UK on the insistence of Tinubu that he be exposed to treatment in line with best global practice. Recall that Bamidele served as a Commissioner for Information and Strategy under Tinubu.
