Watch as Former Governor Fayose Undergoes Back Surgery Abroad

Former Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose, has undergone a back surgery overseas. According to his brother, Isaac and ex-aide, Lere Olayinka, this was the second surgery the former governor was having in five months.

They claim that the surgery became necessary following injuries sustained during an attack on him during the 2018 Ekiti governorship election. Fayose reportedly had the first surgery on his neck in February 2022.

NewsWireNGR recalls that in 2018, there was tension in Ekiti during the election after governor of the state was allegedly beaten, tear gassed and dragged on the floor by security men who had occupied the gates of the governor’s office shortly after President Mohammadu Buhari visited the state for mega rally of the All Progressive Congress.

Posters displaying PDP candidates were torn at the Fajuyi park and replaced with those of APC candidate.

The governor was bandaged on the neck and hands, managed to speak with teeming supporters who marched to the governor’s office to sympathize with him.

The governor suddenly fainted after briefly addressing the people and that further angered them as they cursed and rained verbal invectives on the opposition and candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Kayode Fayemi.

Trouble started when Fayose, leading thousands of supporters in a victory walk he had announced to hold in Ado Ekiti some days ago, approached some stern looking armed policemen to demand why they were preventing people to mass at the campaign venue in Fajuyi pavilion.

Responding, security men allegedly teargassed him and many others, and shot sporadically in the air.
