How thugs attacked me after visiting Ekiti Assembly – Fayose
Ayodele Fayose, a former Ekiti State Governor, has narrated how he was attacked while leaving the House of Assembly in Ado Ekiti, the state capital yesterday.
Fayose had on Friday appeared at the Assembly on the invitation of the legislative body.
The former governor said, “It was on our way from the Assembly that some people trailed us in a Pick-up purposely to attack us. We managed to escape. In short, one of them nearly broke my head.”
Fayose, who said he came to honour the Assembly’s invitation because “a clear conscience fears no accusation”, said, “When I got to the Assembly, they said they were not ready and that they would inform me when they were ready. As a matter of fact, since they accused me of financial misappropriation, they were supposed to be ready.”

However, he went into a closed-door session with the Speaker, Funminiyi Afuye, and two other lawmakers.
The former governor in a told journalists said, “I got this by noon yesterday (Thursday) and I called the Speaker to confirm whether it was true and he confirmed it. You know my style. When the EFCC (Economic and Financial Crimes Commission) wanted me, I told them ‘I’m here’.
“So, I have come to the House of Assembly to tell them I’m available for their questions. I drove down from Lagos to tell them that there was no hiding place for some of us, so, I am here and ready to give an account of my stewardship.”
