The governor, who emerged with a neck brace narrated his ordeal and asked supporters of the party to remain resolute and vote for his deputy, who is also the governorship candidate of the PDP, Prof. Olusola Kolapo.

Fayose, who burst into tears while speaking with journalists said he was slapped, kicked and shot at by the policemen and said the Inspector General of Police should be held responsible if anything happened to him.

“My people, the Lord will fight this battle. The COMPOL MOPOL of Nigeria Police and the AIG ordered that the governor should be killed. I was slapped by a policeman and shot at,

“But I want you to be of great courage. This battle must be won. This is an army of occupation. I want you to stand and remain standing.

“I hope they will not cause 1983 crisis. I call on the international community, Ekiti is under siege. How can I be the governor of the stage and be treated this way? I will go back to the hospital and remain there for a while.

“Stand with Eleka. I am having a lot of pain and I decide to bear this pain because of you, I am pleading with the international community, Nigeria is in trouble. They have arrested so many teachers, many okada riders… Come and save Ekiti, this is our hour of tribulation.”
