Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose, has escaped death in the hands of security operatives who allegedly fired teargas at him.
Reports have it that security operatives blocked the government house in the state capital, Ado-Ekiti, a development which created tension and led to some disagreements before Fayose was attacked.
Lere Olayinka, the governor’s Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, took to social media to update Nigerians on the unfortunate incident.
He wrote: “#Ekiti2018 Update. Gov Fayose, a few minutes ago escaped plot to assassinate him by Fayemi and his APC.
