The reception for the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in next month’s election in Ekiti State, Dr.Kayode Fayemi, turned bloody in Ado Ekiti, the state capital, on Friday, June 1.

A former member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Opeyemi Bamidele and five other people were hit by bullets.

The officer who fired gunshots at the APC secretariat is not a fake MOPOL officer. He is a genuine officer, but he came to Ekiti on illegal duty,” the source said.

According to the spokesperson of the Ekiti State Police Command, Mr Caleb Ikechukwu in an interview with one of the private Televisions, Channels TV on Friday night says the Policeman that shot Opeyemi Bamidele was on illegal duty.

“He’s not a fake policeman, he’s our officer but he was on illegal duty in Ekiti State.

“He was attached to MOPOL 20 in Ikeja, Lagos but he illegally escorted a Politician to Ekiti State on illegal duty.

“The Politician came from Lagos to attend the rally. The politician has also been quizzed.”

However, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in Ekiti State, Mr Caleb Chukwuemeka said a detailed report of the incident was still being compiled.

Handling the assignment is the Assistant Commissioner in charge of the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID).

Chukwuemeka promised to get back when the official report of the incident gets to his table.
