The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, on Thursday, led the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party to the National Assembly to protest against the alleged assault by men of the Nigeria Police on the Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose.
Fayose, on Wednesday, claimed that he was a victim of police brutality in Ekiti state as Police men fired tear gas into the state’s government house which led to him losing consciousness.
Reacting, the PDP leaders took to the National Assembly to protest. Also at the protest, which held at the main gate to the National Assembly Complex was a former Senate President, Adolphus Wabara; former Minister of Health, Prof. ABC Nwosu; a former National Woman Leader, Josephine Anenih; and former Majority Leader of the Senate, Mulikat Akande-Adeola, among others.
The protesters, who were received by Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, demanded a free, fair and credible governorship election in Ekiti on Saturday and slammed the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for the police brutality on a serving Governor of their fold.
