A motorist, Dayo Oshituyi, who was reportedly assaulted by men in Ekiti state’s governor convoy in Akure, Ondo State, has been asked to visit the governor’s office and show proof of his claims.

A motorist, Dayo Oshituyi, who was reportedly assaulted by men in Ekiti state’s governor convoy in Akure, Ondo State, has been asked to visit the governor’s office and show proof of his claims.
   
Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to governor Kayode Fayemi, Yinka Oyebode, in a statement, also wants the man to identify the person’s name tag.
 
Oyebode stated that the attention of the Government of Ekiti State has been drawn to the incident.
 
He said: “We empathise with the victim and affirm our belief that no citizen should suffer any form of brutality in contravention of extant laws.
 


“While the allegation is currently being investigated by the state government and relevant security agencies, it is important to state clearly that the governor is not aware of the incident and cannot be a party to any form of assault on a citizen. This is contrary to the allegation that the Governor witnessed the alleged brutalisation of Mr.  Oshituyi.
 
“We kindly implore Mr. Oshituyi to contact the Governor’s Office, Oke Bareke, Ado-Ekiti, with useful information to help the investigations.
 
When The Guardian reached out to Oyebode to ask why the government could not use its internal mechanism to reach out to Oshituyi instead of asking him to visit and show proof, he said: “We didn’t order him to report to the Government House, we only asked him to show further proof that it was the governor’s convoy that destroyed his car. “People can’t just sit down somewhere to do a video and lay allegation, you must show proof.”
 
Oyebode promised that the government would look inward to find out what happened.
