The incident was confirmed by the Peoples Democratic Party in a statement on Friday.
The party in its statement stated that nothing will break the will of Nigerians to vote out the All Progressives Congress government.
State Publicity Secretary, Jackson Adebayo, said;
“Armed operatives of the EFCC stormed Fayose’s residence a few minutes ago to conduct a search, claiming that he was in the custody of fund meant for the PDP in the Southwest since he is the Coordinator of the Atiku/Obi Presidential Campaign Council in the zone.”
“They subjected the former governor and his guests to that level of harassment and oppression just because of tomorrow’s elections was the height of desperation by the APC government”, it said.
PDP appreciated the youths in Afao Ekiti for supporting the former governor, adding that the peaceful conduct of youths, even when provoked by the commission operatives, was commendable.
The party called on international community to prevail on the ruling APC to stop using instruments of government to harass, intimidate and oppress Nigerians who do not support the view of government.
