As the Governor of a state is Good sometimes to tell your citezens what you cant do, not only doing General Works , Governor Ayo Fayose did the unexpected today after some restive youths at Iju, Ondo State barricaded a major road following the alleged killing of an Okada by a policeman.. The governor’s motorcade and other motorists were prevented from plying the route close to Iju/Itaogbolu police station where the rampaging youths had blocked the road with bonfire.
Governor Fayose came down from his car, walked up to the angry youths surrounded by his security aides as he thanked them for the respect accorded him saying he plies the road regularly and couldn’t have run away from them today because there was an issue.
He promised to get in touch with Ekiti State Police Commissioner who in turn will get in touch with Ondo CP and make sure the trigger happy policeman is dealt with according to the law.
The Governor later told them he’ll drop some “little cash” for “morning bread” to the admiration of the now calm youths who quickly looked for water from the deserted police station to quench the bonfire. The barricades too were removed as the governor supervised for some minutes the free flow of traffic before finally taking his leave.
