Governor Fayose Returns To Ekiti From Jerusalem...As He Restores Peace In Iju And Itaogbolu

The walkie-talkie with my press officer passed a message, it was an information about a road block caused by some restive youths at Iju, Ondo State.

The security people felt we should take another route to Ikere-Ekiti

so as not to endanger the life of the principal, kro kro kro, the

final word was that the convoy should go ahead.
Governor Ayodele Fayose was aware of the dangerous situation ahead but

he chose to move on.
After about thirty minutes drive... we met this gridlock about two

kilometres to Iju/Itaogbolu police station where the rampaging youths

had blocked the road with bonfire.
The security on the convoy swung into action and we had no problem

getting to the action spot, the governor alighted and before you say

Jack it was the Oshoko song here and there, they came near him amidst

the hailing, he asked them what happened and they wasted no time in

telling him how a policeman shot an Okada rider.
The governor thanked them for the respect accorded him saying he plies

the road regularly and couldn't have run away from them today because

there was an issue.
He promised to get in touch with Ekiti State Police Commissioner who

in turn will get in touch with Ondo CP and make sure the trigger happy

policeman is dealt with according to the law.
The Governor later told them he'll drop some "little cash" for

"morning bread" to the admiration of the now calm youths who quickly

looked for water from the deserted police station to quench the

The barricades too were removed as the governor supervised for some

minutes the free flow of traffic before finally taking his leave.
