Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, has further descended into chaos with rampaging thugs, believed to be loyal to the Peoples Democratic Party and the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, charging around the city and unleashing violence on residents and properties.
Already, the campaign office of Governor Kayode Fayemi and the secretariat of the All Progressives Congress, APC, located at the Ajilosun area of the city, have been touched.
The spokesperson for the Ekiti State command of the police, Olu Babayemi, confirmed the incident, saying the command had poured officers on the streets to contain the situation.
“There was a protest in town but the police have moved in,” Mr. Babayemi said.”For now, we are trying to restore normalcy and ensure lives and property are secured.”
Mr. Babayemi confirmed that the APC secretariat and Mr. Fayemi’s campaign office had been vandalised and torched.
