JUST IN: Fayose Collapses As Police Fire Teargas Into Govt House
Gov Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State lost consciousness momentarily on Wednesday after policemen reportedly fired teargas into the Government House in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.
He was taken to the state house clinic where doctors attended to him.
A combined team of security operatives from the Department of State Services (DSS) and Nigeria Police Force, has laid siege to the Ekiti State Government House.
There was alleged heavy shooting by these some security agents who had been occupying the gates leading to Government House since Tuesday.
It was gathered that the shootings were used to disperse some supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Prof. Kolapo Olusola Eleka and Governor Ayo Fayose who were billed to have a victory walk round a part of the capital city in anticipation of victory in the July 14 poll.
Chief Press Secretary to Fayose, Idowu Adelusi, who decried the shooting, urged the Commissioner of Police in the state, Ahmed Bello, to call the security agents to order before the incident escalates.
