The Ekiti state police command says no policeman slapped Ayodele Fayose, governor of the state. Fayose had said security operatives invaded the governor’s office on Wednesday and later assaulted him.
But speaking with TheCable on Friday, Caleb Ikechukwu, police spokesman in Ekiti, said the police respect the office of the governor and no policeman could have slapped him.
“No policeman can and will slap a sitting governor or deputy, they are our excellencies,” he said.
The command said two political parties wanted to have their rallies on the same date in Ado-Ekiti but the commissioner of police advised the parties to have their activities at different times because of the security implication.
The police had ordered the withdrawal of security details of candidates.
