Great Tension Everywhere As Fayose Escapes “Assassination” In Ekiti State

The former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, stated that he narrowly escaped being attacked on Friday, as he staged a surprise visit to the Ekiti State House of Assembly, shortly after the Lawmakers summoned him to appear over alleged fraud.
The former Governor explained that some people he described as thugs, nearly attacked him shortly after he left the Assembly, saying: “Even one of them nearly broke my head.”
Fayose said that the suspected thugs trailed him with a Hilux van from the Assembly, and that he managed to escape from the assailants.
Shedding light on why he visited the House after a short closed-door meeting with the Speaker, Hon. Funminiyi Afuye, Fayose said that he came to the Ekiti House of Assembly, to tell them: “I am here, and if they need any clarification I can answer, because clear conscience fears no foe.”
Recall that the Assembly at its Thursday plenary session, summoned Fayose to appear before its Committee on Public Account, over alleged misappropriation of Local Government funds while in Office.
Also summoned alongside the former Governor are the former Chairman of the Association of Local Government Chairmen, ALGON, Dapo Olagunju, the former Commissioner for Local Government Affairs, Kola Kolade, and all the former 16 Local Government Chairmen.
The Assembly said that its decision followed the adoption of the recommendations of the Joint Committee of the House on Public Petition and Local Governments, that were recently directed to look into a petition submitted to the Assembly, by eight suspended Council Chairmen in the State 
On arrival at the Assembly Complex, Fayose went straight to the Speaker’s Office, and was received by the Speaker, Afuye and the Deputy Speaker,  Hakeem Jamiu, where he met them behind closed-door for about 40 minutes.
The former Governor, said that he received the summon via television and decided to come to see the Lawmakers.
“Let me say that I got their summon on the news Media, and I called the Speaker last night, to confirm whether it is true or not, and he confirmed it. You know my style, when EFCC wanted me, I told them I am here.
“Today too, I have come to the Ekiti House of Assembly to tell them I am here, and if they need any clarification I can answer, because clear conscience fears no foe. I am saying it that I am available.
“The Speaker confirmed that they did not know that I will be coming. He said that the Committee in charge was not immediately available. But I want to let them know that for any question whatsoever, I am a Leader, I am here, and I will continue to be here. So, I drove all the way from Lagos, to tell you that there is no hiding place for people like us.
“I am ready to give account of my stewardship. I do not play politics in that manner; that is why I am here.”
On whether he was given a soft landing by the Federal Government on his case before the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, he said: “The Fayose you know will not compromise standard. I will not follow multitude to sin.
“While I want to believe that selective justice will not help our country. I have condemned it severely, anybody who says when you join APC, you have become a saint. I have said it severally, that I will not join APC. If I wanted a soft landing, I would have done it in the past. What is the soft landing, is it because I am before EFCC?” 

However, another twist was added to the unfolding drama, when Fayose in a phone call alleged that he narrowly escaped being attacked after he left the Assembly, and was on his way to his home town in Afao Ekiti.

The former Governor, alleged that thugs in an unmarked black Hilux Jeep trailed him and hauled stones on his moving Range Rover Jeep.

He, however, did not give details of the attack on him, but said he is grateful to God for sparing his life. He disclosed that he is not hurt and nobody in his entourage was hurt.
