The APC in Ekiti State has countered the claim by Governor Ayodele Fayose that no member of the opposition has been attacked since he assumed office in October 2014.
The party debunked the governor’s claims in his Monday media chat television programme in the state.
APC’s Publicity Secretary in the state, Taiwo Olatunbosun, listed instances of alleged attacks on the opposition, saying Fayose only pulled the brakes after President Muhammadu Buhari was inaugurated in May 2015.
“What of the shootings in Igbemo by Fayose’s thugs for more than three hours with pellets falling on the palace roof? What of the shootings at Hon. Ife Arowosoge’s house at around the same time when 19 APC Assembly members were not allowed to sit by the governor’s thugs?
“What of our members who received machete cuts by his thugs for wearing APC vests or the shooting in front of CNPP chairman’s house at Egbewa? Or the APC members he sent to jail for crimes they didn’t commit?
“What of the several shootings and burning of APC secretariat where offices and vehicles, including mine, were destroyed and are still kept in police stations as exhibits?  Or the attack on our members in front of Bisi Egbeyemi’s house with the latter’s truck vandalised?
“What of the forceful seizure of vehicles belonging to Fayemi’s commissioners and aides, or the forceful eviction of Fayemi’s aides and commissioners from their houses at Irewolede Estate until the court stopped him?” the APC asked.
