Ekiti State Government has reacted to a footage showing security operatives attached to Governor Kayode Fayemi assaulting a motorist.
The incident involving the victim, identified as Dayo Oshituyi, occurred in Akure, capital of Ondo State.
A statement by Fayemi’s spokesman, Yinka Oyebode, told Oshituyi to visit the state authorities to formally complain.
The government empathised with him, adding that no citizen should suffer any form of brutality in contravention of extant laws.
Oyebode vehemently denied his principal was aware of, or present during the assault by his escort.
“This is contrary to the allegation that the Governor witnessed the alleged brutalisation of Mr Oshituyi.
“We kindly implore Mr Oshituyi to contact the Governor’s Office, Oke Bareke, Ado-Ekiti, with useful information to help the investigations.”
The statement added that the government, in line with its principle of justice and fairness, will be fair in handling the matter.
