The Attorney General of Ekiti state, Wale Fapohunda, has thrown more light to the controversy surrounding the beating of a judge in Ekiti State, saying Governor-elect, Ayo Fayose did not slap the judge but supervised his beating
Fapounda was a guest on Channels TV Sunrise programme on Saturday where he spoke on what happened at the Ekiti state High Court on Thursday September 25th where a judge was assaulted
According to Fapohunda, Justice Adeyeye told him when they spoke on phone that he was never slapped by Ayo Fayose but that the governor-elect supervised his beating.
“When I spoke to the judge, the judge did not say that the governor-elect slapped him. He said he supervised his beating. The judge said he (Fayose) was there, and was standing while his thugs, for want of a better word, beat the judge. Not only did they beat him up, they tore his clothes. ” Fapohunda said.
He said Justice Adeyeye told him that immediately they arrived in court for the election tribunal sitting, Fayose’s supporters began ransacking the court rooms, tearing court documents. It was when he went to meet Fayose to ask him to control his supporters that he was physically assaulted.
