The lawmaker who was very weak and could barely speak, is now receiving intravenous fluid in the private hospital. He said he collapsed two times while in DSS custody.


Meanwhile, Ekiti state governor, Mr Ayo Fayose, has alleged that there are increasing cases of election violence leading to loss of lives in the country because God is angry with President Muhammadu Buhari.

Speaking to reporters is Abuja, on Tuesday, he accused the president of being repressive towards his opponents and, therefore, drawing the wrath of God.

“Power doesn’t come from anywhere, God rules in the affairs of men. Oppression, bringing and cutting people down, dropping people, taking their blood on the ground, God is angry. “The way this government is taking people down, God is angry. God isn’t happy.

“Go to Rivers, they kill people. Go to Akwa Ibom, they kill people. Go to Baylesa, they kill people. They incarcerate innocent people. God is angry with Buhari. You can’t continue to take the blood of the innocent,” he said.

He said as a governor who had served under three separate presidents, he was not afraid to speak out, saying that nobody could tell where he would end up tomorrow.

“You want to try me with impeachment? They have done it before. You want to try me with state of emergency? They have done it before. You want to trap someone in the building? They have done it before.

“I am an experienced man, I am fearless. The reason is that great is He that is in me than he that is in them. And let me remind you, if they have another person that they will join with Buhari to get more forces, they will bow to this force here. I am telling you the truth,” he said.
