Ayodele Fayose, governor of Ekiti state, reportedly lost consciousness on Wednesday after policemen allegedly fired teargas into the government house in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.
Lere Olayinka, spokesman of the governor, said his principal was taken to government house clinic after the incident.
A combined team of security operatives from the Department of State Services (DSS) and Nigeria Police Force, laid siege to the government house.
This is the entrance to Ekiti Govt House now blocked by gun wielding mobile policemen. The plan is to prevent our victory walk slated for today but we will remain undeterred.
