Thugs suspected to be working for the Ekiti state government wielding dangerous weapons reportedly invaded an Emasculate Open bar, Ogo-Oluwa in Osogbo, in an attempt to assassinate the National President, Comr. AbdulMajeed Oyeniyi and some officials of the National Association of Nigeria Students, (NANS) during a meeting.

Information reaching Politics Nigeria states that the thugs numbering about 25 persons invaded the bar at about 7 pm on Wednesday in an official bus belonging to NANS.

Prior to the attack, members of the entourage of the National President had noticed the presence of a NANS bus, donated on the 12th July 2021 to Asefon Sunday Dayo by the government of Ekiti State parading the streets of Oshogbo.

According to Comrade. Adekanmi Solomon Olalekan, special adviser on media to the President, NANS, the information available to the team had indicated that the “Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi had facilitated the release of the bus with financial support to get rid of Com. AbdulMajeed and core supporters of the administration he was inaugurated to lead”.

Olalekan further stated that the team took it with levity believing that as an activist of repute, the Ekiti state government would not encourage violence within the student movement. Alas, it became a reality that he had indeed provided funds and resources to annihilate and murder the National President through his sponsored agent (Asefon Sunday Dayo) in a bid to silencing apolitical students for his crashing 2023 Presidential agenda.

“Upon arrival at the Emasculate Open bar, Ogo-Oluwa, Osogbo, where the National President was holding his meeting, the assailants who came with a mix of dreaded cultists and abattoir thugs descended on him and others, inflicting bodily injuries including a deep matchet cut personally inflicted on his head by Asefon Sunday Dayo, the Ekiti State Governor imposed factional NANS President.

“They also made away with his phones and those of two others. Already, one of the assailants’ promoters had owned up to knowing all that transpired and alluded to the fact that the murderous gang stole phones and other valuables of their targets”, Olalekan said.

In a pool of blood and amidst gunshots fired sporadically by the assailants, the National President was rescued and immediately rushed to the Oakland Medical Centre, Osogbo for treatment alongside others. The matter was also promptly reported at the Police station  and the Department of State Security, Osun State Command for notice and investigation.
