Former governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayo Fayose narrowly escaped death  Tuesday night in Ado Ekiti when his car was shot at by unknown gunmen on Afao road

Fayose is one of the leading Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, aspirants warming up for next year’s governorship election in the state.

This was contained in a statement by Ayo Fayose Campaign Organisation, AFCO, and signed by the Campaign Director General, Mr. Owoseni Ajayi

According to the statement, the former governor was trailed by the suspected assassins at about 9 p.m. in  a white Hilux van with green number plate at a point close to Fayose Housing Estate.

Fayose’s driver, according to the statement, noticed that a vehicle was trailing them and immediately alerted his boss who was the only one with him in the car.

The statement reads in part: “The driver immediately increased the car’s speed and when the driver of the  Hilux vehicle saw that they could not catch up with Fayose’s car, they were said to have released four shots towards the ex-governor’s vehicle.

“Seeing that Fayose had arrived Afao, his home-town, the Hilux van turned back.
“Earlier that day, Fayose received a call from somebody who called himself ‘Solar’ telling him that he (Solar) was a life waster and that Fayose should expect a tough time ahead of 2014 election, but the former governor took the message for granted.”

The AFCO DG, therefore, called on the police to take appropriate action before the state is  turned  into a theatre of war.

The police image maker in the state, Mr. Victor Babayemi, however, said he was yet to be officially briefed on the allegation.
