A member of the House of Representatives, Aminu Shagari, has berated the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose for alleging that he was attacked by the police.
The lawmaker from Sokoto State described Fayose as an actor.
Recall that security operatives had on Wednesday blocked the entrance to Ekiti State Government House in Ado Ekiti.
The operatives had allegedly shut teargas canisters which affected Fayose.
Commenting on the attack, Fayose had claimed that he was equally slapped and beaten by police officers.
But speaking during a motion on the issue, Shagari maintained that Fayose’s claim that he was beaten by the police “never happened.”
The lawmaker wondered how it was only the governor that was affected by the alleged police clampdown.
He said, “Everybody knows the governor of Ekiti state as an actor. The incident he portrayed yesterday did not happen.
“Everybody was standing around him including his deputy. He fell down and began to pretend. How come it was only him?”
