Gunnmen attack Ekiti APC secretariat

The secretariat of the All Progressive Congress in Ekiti state was on Wednesday attacked by gunmen, who destroyed flags and posters of the party’s candidates.

According to a statement by Taiwo Olatunbosun, the state Publicity Secretary, gunmen came in four Hilux vehicles and a car to attack.

Street lights along Ajilosun street, where the APC secretariat is located were switched off shortly before the raid and the security man at the gate of the APC office was wounded by the hoodlums, the statement said.

Olatunbosun claimed that the Director of Department of State Service, Mr. Samuel Tamuno and the Commissioner of Police, Taiwo Lakanu, had been informed about the development.

When contacted, Lakanu confirmed the crisis saying there was no sporadic shooting and he has sent his men to maintain peace and order at the scene.

Meanwhile, Ekiti Governor, Ayo Fayose reportedly has intentions to hold a rally at Fajuyi roundabout in Ado-Ekiti on Saturday, the same day the APC presidential rally has been scheduled for the same day, contradicting INEC’s law that prevents two parties from holding a rally on the same day in the same state capital.

Fajuyi is said to be a major link to Ekitiparapo square where APC intends holding its presidential rally on Saturday.
