Kayode Fayemi, All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate for the Ekiti guber election has denied killing a police officer.
Wole Olujobi, Director, Media and Publicity of his campaign organisation has reacted to reports accusing the former minister’s convoy of killing a police officer in Ado-Ekiti…
“Since we were sure that nothing like that happened, we took the pains to find out the veracity of the report and our search for truth yielded a mindless attempt by mischief-makers to blame an innocent man for the offence he did not commit just because of desperation to paint him black for electoral advantage.”
“Our investigation confirmed that no accident connected with Dr Fayemi’s convoy happened during the rally. Officers at SIB Department of the State Police Command confirmed that the affected officer was knocked down by a boy who was driving his father’s car at a high speed and in the process hit the officer.”
“The vehicle that knocked down the officer has since been impounded at MTD, a road accident section of the State Police Command located at Okesa. It is unfortunate that those who claim to be journalists working for Fayose do not have any idea about what journalism is all about. It is also regrettable that practising journalists who know their onions allow quacks to put the integrity of their profession at risk.”
