Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State says Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris should be held responsible if anything happen to him.
Fayose said this when he appeared at a rally organised by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ado Ekiti.
It was reported in the morning that security operatives lay siege on the Government House and the Governor collapsed when he inhaled tear gas before he was rushed to state government house clinic.
The Governor was assisted to the podium by his aides and he cried as he speaks that a Policeman slapped him in the morning.
“My people, the Lord will fight this battle. The mopol of the Nigerian police and the AIG ordered that the governor should be killed. I was slapped by a policeman who kicked me and shot at me but I want you all to be strong and be of great courage,” he said.
“This battle must be won. This is army of occupation, they have come to occupy our land. This is not the democracy we asked for. I want you to stand and remain standing, don’t be afraid.
“Remain and face them. I pray they will not cause 1983 problem in Ekiti. I call on the international community, Ekiti is under siege, Nigeria is in trouble, it is our hour of need. How can I be a governor of Ekiti state and be treated like this in our own country?
“I will go back to the hospital and remain there for a while to rest. I am having a lot of pains but I prefer to bear these pains because of you. I am in severe pain, I can’t turn this neck anymore. If anything happens to me, the inspector general of police should be held accountable.”
