Ayo Fayose, the former Governor of Ekiti state, has alleged that some persons within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South West region are plotting to kill him like former Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Chief Bola Ige.
Fayose stated this while reacting to the removal of his cap by suspected hoodlums as he made his way to the podium at the Ondo PDP governorship campaign on Wednesday, October 7.
Bola Ige’s cap was also removed at the Palace of the Ooni of Ife a few hours before he was murdered at his Bodija residence in Ibadan on December 23, 2001.
In a statement released by his media aide, Lere Olayinka, Fayose said he will make formal report of the incidence to the security agencies and relevant party relevant authorities, noting it was not something to be handled with levity.
“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.” the statement read
He added that he is unperturbed by the incident.
“As for me, I am unperturbed and I must say it clearly that those new comers 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.
