How Ex-Governor Fayose’s Brother Escaped Kidnap Attempt.
One person was injured when gunmen attempted to kidnap Isaac, the younger brother of former Ekiti Governor, Ayo Fayose in Gbongan community, the headquarters of Ayedaade Local Government area of Osun State.
Isaac posted the pictures of the attacked vehicle on his Facebook page with the username Prince Isaac Fayose, disclosing that no life was lost but the gunmen abducted many.
The post reads: “Thank God for life !!! No life was lost ….Many were kidnapped by Kidnappers in Gbogan area of Oyo state coming to Lagos. No security in Nigeria at all.”
While narrating his ordeal with The Nation on Tuesday, Isaac said the incident occurred on Sunday around 4 pm while he was returning to Lagos state.
According to him:
“The incident happened on Sunday around 4 PM when I was returning to Lagos. It happened before the Gbongan bridge. We saw the gunmen after they ambushed a Benz car in front of my vehicle. They were shooting everywhere which forced people to safety. Motorists abandoned their cars on the road. My driver was trying to maneuver his way when he ran into a truck on the road. He was injured in the process and my security detail fainted instantly.”
He said he did not make any report at the police station because the police team at a checkpoint around the area witnessed the attack.
He added: “I did not make any report because the police were there, they told us that they use to witness it because it is an everyday activity in the area. They told me that kidnappers killed many of their men, how can they say I did not make any report? It was a terrible experience because after God saved me, I more straight to Lagos, everyone is running for his or her safety. I took the fainted police and my injured driver to the hospital.
“Eni tii sango baa tii oju e wole, koni ba won bu oba koso (Anyone who witnesses how the gods is buried will never insult Sango). The police we saw told us that they are used to it. At times if they try to check them they will kill them. They (police) are even running for their safety because they have lost a lot of men.”
Osun Police spokesperson Yemisi Opalola said Isaac Fayose did not report the incident at any police station. She, however, vowed that the Command was investigating the alleged attack.
According to her: “He didn’t report to any police station in Osun State. We are not spirits to know what happens everywhere and every time. Facebook is not a police complaint/report station Sir. If we want more inquiries from him about the incident because there are lots of questions that we will want to ask him, which can’t be asked on Facebook.
“But notwithstanding, we shall work on the matter to know what really happened & know what to do about it.”
