Security operatives have dispersed supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from the venue of the party’s rally ahead of the governorship election in the state.

Party members had converged on the popular Fajuyi park in Ado Ekiti, the state capital today before gunshots were reportedly fired into the air.

Afterwards, Governor Ayodele Fayose attempted to lead the supporters back to the park but the move was thwarted as security operatives reportedly fired gunshots into the air again.

The Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) in charge of operations, Joshak Habila, who confirmed the incident to journalists explained that the move by the law enforcement agents was to prevent a breakdown of law and order in the state capital and other parts of Ekiti ahead of the July 14 governorship election.
