#NigeriaDecides: Shot APC supporter in stable condition

Officials at the Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital have confirmed that a man simply identified as Jide, who was shot at Ikere Ekiti, is currently receiving treatment at the facility and is in stable condition.

A doctor at the hospital, who refused to disclose his name, told PREMIUM TIMES that the man between the age of 25 and 35 was brought to the hospital about 1 p.m. on Saturday on referral from the State General Hospital, Ikere Ekiti.

“He was shot in the back and was brought here about three hours after he was shot. He is fine and in a stable condition. Though the bullet is still lodged in his back, he would survive,” said the doctor.

The doctor said the man will be operated when the medical team in the hospital decide it was safe to remove the bullet.

The immediate past governor of the state, Kayode Fayemi, alleged that the man was shot by thugs led by the Deputy Governor of the State, Olubunmi Olusola–Eleka.

“I just received a report that the deputy governor , is leading people to shoot in his own home town of Ikere which is why I was speaking to the commissioner of police,” Mr. Fayemi told PREMIUM TIMES.

But the spokesperson to the Ekiti State Governor, Lere Olayinka, said it was Mr Olusola-Eleka that was attacked by thugs hired by Mr. Fayemi’s All Progressives Congress, APC.

“The Deputy Governor received a call that card reader machines in some polling booths were not functioning. Dr. Olubunmi decided to visit the polling booths based on the reports but at Odo Oja Area, some APC thugs who apparently had been stationed there to cause violence in Ikere welcomed the Deputy Governor’s convoy with stones and the security attached to him had to shoot in the air to disperse the hoodlums,” he said.

“We are amazed at lies being circulated in the media by the APC that an APC member was shot by the Deputy Governor’s security. The security agents posted for the election saw what happened. The surname of APC is lies and that is why it can never win this election. APC should go and warm up for 2019,” he added.
