Following the revelation recently made by the former secretary of Ekiti state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr Temitope Aluko, on how the party rigged Governor Ayodele Fayose into power in 2014, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has released pictures to back up its claims that some of its members were accosted by soldiers.
According to a post on the Facebook page of the party, Rotimi Amaechi’s convoy was ambushed by soldiers allegedly acting on the order of former President Goodluck Jonathan, while going to Ekiti state.

Amaechi was tasked to rally for the then governor of Ekiti state, Kayode Fayemi for the state’s governorship election in 2014.
The soldiers, who allegedly laid ambush for Amaechi, stopped him as he approached Ikere Ekiti. He was allegedly challenged and ordered to turn back.
Amaechi, who is now the Minister of Transport, was allegedly told he had no clearance to enter Ekiti state.
It was alleged that the soldiers at the height of the argument, threatened to shoot Amaechi if he move pass the road block.
The soldiers forced Amaechi to return to Akure’s airport only to be told his chartered jet had been grounded by federal aviation authorities. Amaechi allegedly drove himself to Lagos.

The rigging of Ekiti state governorship election was brought to public knowledge on June 20, 2014, by Captain Sagir Koli from the 32nd Artillery Brigade stationed in Ekiti State. He reportedly accompanied his Commanding Officer, Brigadier General Aliyu Momoh to a meeting at the Spotless Hotel in Ado-Ekiti.
The meeting was allegedly attended by Governor Fayose, Senator Iyiola Omisore; a man identified as a member of the National Assembly Abdulkareem; the former Minister for Police Affairs Caleb Olubolade, the then Minister of Police Affairs Jelili Adesiyan and Senator Musiliu Obanikoro who was the Minister of State for Defence.

Captain Koli made an audio recording of the said meeting and later handed it over to Sahara Reporters to publish on February 5, 2015.
Fayose, was the state governor from May 29, 2003 to October 16, 2006, before he was re-elected in June 2014.
Meanwhile, the Ekiti state chapter of the APC recently lasted the governor, saying he is suffering from psychological stress which prompted him to make seditious remarks threatening to bring down President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
