The immediate past governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has lampooned the Nigerian Army over its role in the clash against Shi’ite protesters at Abuja that left many people dead.
Fayose further extolled the virtues of the ex-president, Goodluck Jonathan referring to him as a true democrat who did his utmost to foster peace in the country.
He stated this in a series of tweets shortly after his release from the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) where he was due to allegations of financial impropriety levelled against him by the anti-graft agency.
Fayose tweeted, “Disturbing news about shooting of protesting Shi’ite Muslims. Don’t we have civilised way of addressing protests by citizens of Nigeria?
“In this country, convoy of a sitting president was attacked with stones in Bauchi, no one was shot.
“God bless Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, the last democrat to rule Nigeria”.
