Comments Flood Twitter Over Dramatic Turn Of Events At The Ekiti PDP Rally
Naija News has earlier reported how Governor Fayose collapsed during a PDP rally as policemen tear gas attack at the venue of the political campaign.
While some have taken sides with the Governor, describing the incident as “undemocratic act of intimidating the opposition party”, some have also noted that the action was justified.
Still some have expressed uncertainty at the whole incidence, wondering why Governor Fayose was the only one affected by the tear gas.
Instead of declaring war on herdsmen killing innocent people, Buhari and his killer squad have declared war on a Ekiti people. Governor Fayose wasn't spared in their madness,he was shot at and slapped by police officers. PDP will still win on Saturday ntoorr

No matter how much you hate the PDP or Governor Fayose, if you have no atom of concern or find humor in what just happened this afternoon, you should really have yourself checked.
This is beyond barbaric

Governor Fayose, the struggles of a man bereft of political gimmicks. This new fainting propaganda is to attract sympathizers for the forthcoming Saturdays election. Hate or love him, he's an astute Nigerian politician. pic.twitter.com/Yx2QbZb1P1

In the news "Governor Fayose" was attacked and teargassed, but he seems to be the only one 'touched by the teargas.

Meanwhile, a live broadcast of the political rally as monitored by Naija News on Channels TV, shows that the tear gassed Fayose, returned to the PDP rally in a neck cast to address his supporters asking them to stand with him and stand for justice, urging them not to be intimidated by the antics of the opposition.
