Video: Nigerian state governor, Ayo Fayose cries on national TV after alleged police brutality

Ahead of Saturday’s gubernatorial election in Ekiti, southwestern state of Nigeria, the outgoing firebrand Governor Ayo Fayose cried, saying he was in pains after he was “shot at” and manhandled by security agents.

Fayose broke into tears, lamenting “I cannot take this anymore” before crawling away from the camera.

Fayose on Wednesday shed tears on national TV, continuously wailing “I am in pains”, “I am in severe pains”.

Those tears came minutes after he addressed a crowd of PDP supporters, appearing in bandages on his right arm and a neck brace.

Watch video below:

He had said:

I call on the international; community; Ekiti is under siege.

How can I be Governor of Ekiti State and be treated like this in my own country? My people, I call on all of you: stand and remain standing.

I will go back to the hospital for a while to rest… I am having a lot of pains, but I prefer to bear these pains because of you. I prefer to bear these pains because of you…

Earlier, Lere Olayinka, spokesman of the Governor, had said his principal lost consciousness and was taken to Government House clinic after policemen fired teargas canisters into the Government House.

Olusola Kolapo, Fayose’s deputy and the Ekiti State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirant, had also said earlier that he was assaulted in his shoulder region by the policemen while his boss was also beaten.

Although mobile policemen fired teargas canisters to break up a PDP road rally for its candidate in Saturday’s election, we are yet to verify claims the Governor was shot.

Folks, what’s your thought on this?
