Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose has stated that due to the incidence that occurred on Wednesday at the Ondo PDP governorship campaign, his life is being threatened as it was a similar way Bola Ige, former Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Chief Bola Ige was killed.
On December 23, 2001, 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.
Lere Olayinka, his media aide, in a statement stated that:
“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.”
“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.”
