“We have it on good authority that the APC has commissioned thugs coming in four 18-seater buses to Ekiti. They were said to have left Lagos around 11 pm on Saturday. They were armed with acid, cutlasses, guns, sledge hammer, syringe and other dangerous weapons to inflict bodily harm on the people of Ekiti State."
