Ekiti Man Allegedly Sent To Prison For Attempting To Kill Fayose

A 35-year-old driver, Ahamed Kolo, was allegedly arraigned before a Magistrates’ Court in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti state, for attempting to murder Governor Ayodele Fayose.

According to reports, Kolo had allegedly tried to kill the governor, by hitting him with his car.

The incident allegedly occurred at Ijigbo Street in Ado-Ekiti, on Sunday, September 24.

The prosecutor, Monica Ikebuilo, argued that the alleged crime contravened Section 320 of the Criminal Code, Cap C 16, Laws of Ekiti state, 2008.

The presiding magistrate, Dolapo Akosile, reportedly ordered that Kolo be remanded in jail until October 9.

Akosile further ordered for the case file to be duplicated, and sent to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions for legal advice.

The opposition party made its comments in reaction to Mrs. Buhari’s tweet, where she described the Ekiti governor as a mad dog, following allegations made by him that she was involved in a corruption scandal.
