PDP Convention: I Was Actually Under House Arrest - Fayose

Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State, has said he was stopped from attending the national convention of his Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Port Harcourt, Rivers state Wednesday by security operatives that blocked the gate to the old Presidential lodge in Rivers State Government House, Port Harcourt where he lodged with an armoured personnel career, APC.

A statement by his media aide, Mr Leye Olayinka described the alleged action of the security aides as a clear case of “house of arrest”.

The media aide said all appeals to the security personnel at the gate to allow the governor go out to attend the convention were ignored.

The governor, who was conspicuously absent at the convention which was eventually held at the state secretariat of the party after security agencies had sealed off the initial venue, was prevented from moving out as the gate to the Old Presidential Lodge was blocked by an Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC).

Olayinka, also disclosed that all entreaties to allow Fayose to step out to attend the convention were rebuffed by the security personnel on ground.”
