Members of the National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have stormed the National Assembly in protest over the alleged attack on the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, by the men of the Nigeria Police Force.
The National Chairman of the party, Uche Secondus accompanied by other Party stalwarts were however stopped by security officials at the entrance to the complex.
The protest is as a result of the outcry by the Ekiti State Governor, accusing policemen of beating, shooting at him, and assaulting supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state.
“They (the police) are beating anybody who has any sign of PDP on them. They are not picking our calls; they’ve made up their minds to do this evil.I am in pain, I am in severe pain. I can’t turn this neck anymore. If anything happens to me, the Inspector-General of Police should be held accountable,” the governor told reporters while weeping at the rally.
The governor also accused the police of disrupting the PDP rally held at the popular Fajuyi Park in Ado Ekiti where supporters of the Party had gathered ahead of Saturday’s governorship election in the state.
The protesters are demanding the intervention of the National Assembly in cautioning the security personnel deployed to the state.
