A street rally led by Senator Babafemi Ojudu today in Ado Ekiti was attacked by alleged the Nigeria anti-riot police a day after President Goodluck Jonathan presented former governor Ayodele Fayose as People’s Democratic Party (PDP) flag bearer in the state.
According to Sahara Reporters, eyewitnesses stated that the carnival-like street rally went on peacefully until the police unleashed a volley of teargas canisters and later used real bullets that killed a party member.
A few minutes after the attack, state governor Kayode Fayemi arrived the scene to ascertain what happened, the rampaging policemen did not spare him as tear gas was fired into his direction while some members of his security and the commissioner for integration in Ekiti State, Niyi Afuye, were arrested and taken away from the scene.
The Commissioner of Police and the director general of the State Security Services later arrived the scene.
