An ‘unconfirmed News’ has it that Nigerian Soldiers Stationed between Akure, the capital of Ondo State, and Ado-Ekiti, the capital of Ekiti State, today prevented Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State from reaching a political rally for Governor Kayode Fayemi, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in this Saturday’s governorship election in Ekiti State.
In a related development, other soldiers also prevented a chopper that was scheduled to take Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State from taking off from the airport in Benin City, the capital of Edo State. Mr. Oshiomhole was also scheduled to attend the rally for Mr. Fayemi. Also, another aircraft who was to bring Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso from Kano was denied landing rights at the Akure airport.
The soldiers reportedly told the governors that they have no clearance to attend the series of rallies for Mr. Fayemi.
