Ayo Fayose alleged that the Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde and PDP Lagos topshot, Bode George want to kill him like Bola Ige was killed.
This is coming after Ayo Fayose was disgraced by a thug in Ondo State during a PDP rally.
NAIJA NEWS NG gathered that Fayose was making his way to the podium at the campaign ground when a hoodlum, ostensibly acting on instruction, moved towards him and removed his cap.
Watch the video below :
In reaction, Fayose through his Media Aide, Lere Olayinka, said he will present a formal report to the security agencies and the Peoples Democratic Party authorities.
He said the security agencies have to unravel all the thugs and their sponsors.
Ayo Fayose likened the incident to the manner Bola Ige was murdered. He said :
“That’s how late Chief Bola Ige’s cap was removed in Ile Ife, Osun State then and we all know what happened later.
“So this one will not be ignored and treated as one of those things.
“The masterminds had it all planned and they followed it up by celebrating what they saw as the success of their plot. They even capped it up by circulating the video.
“So it was not an accident, it was planned. But those who planned it only succeeded in advertising their political myopism because popularity of the brand Ayo Fayose, Osokomole cannot be rubbished by such childish act. That they must have seen in the reaction of the people at the rally and I am sure they know that they can’t get such loud ovation even if they spend all the money in this world.
“As for me, I am unperturbed and I must say it clearly that those newcomers to the PDP and their old allies, who won’t mind soiling the image of the party to achieve their aims will not be allowed to succeed,” he said.
The Oyo State Governor has also replied the allegation by former Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose.
Makinde’s Chief Press Secretary (CPS) , Mr. Taiwo Adisa, has said that his boss does not intend to join issues with the former governor whom he said appears perpetually desirous of hugging the limelight even when the occasion doesn’t desire such grandstanding .
“I believe that ex-governor Fayose and his handlers need to look far away from Oyo state in search of their enemies.
“Governor Makinde has no link whatsoever with the incident Fayose’s aide was talking about”.
“We expect all right- thinking members of the PDP to join the Governor of Oyo State in the prosecution of the noble and democratic assignment he is executing on behalf of the PDP in Ondo State at this time, instead of seeking to distract him one way or the other”.
“The governor will, however, not be distracted either on the task at hand or on the well- intentioned desire to join other leaders to rebuild the PDP in the South West geopolitical zone.”
