The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain in Ekiti State, Mrs Bola Owolabi, has been hospitalized following a facial injury she sustained during an attack from a party member at a ward meeting in Ado Ekiti.
Mrs Owolabi aka Afidipote was allegedly attacked by Tosin Adebayo, an aide to former Ado Ekiti Local Government Chairman, Hon. Ayodeji Ogunsakin, at Ado Ekiti Ward 9 meeting on Monday.
A party source who was at the meeting disclosed that Adebayo smashed the face of the women leader with a wooden turning stick known locally as “omo orogun” during the meeting.
Adebayo supports the governorship ambition of Chief Bisi Kolawole, who is the preferred candidate of former Governor Ayodele Fayose, while Owolabi supports the ambition of former Deputy Governor, Prof Olusola Eleka. Former LG chairman, Ogunsakin, Adebayo’s direct boss, is the Director of Administration and Strategy of Bisi Kolawole Campaign Organisation and he is also from Ward 9 where the incident happened.
“The attack on the woman emanated from her support for Eleka which Tosin (Adebayo) is not comfortable with because he and Ogunsakin are in support of Bisi Kolawole.
“The woman was one of the party members who attended the wedding of the son of Eleka in Ilorin recently contrary to the order given by Fayose that nobody should attend.
“They have been trying to suspend her from the party because of her resolve to abide by her principle but as the women leader in the ward, when has attending a wedding of a party leader’s son become an offence
