Fire Guts PDP Secretariat In Ekiti

The state secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, located in Ajilosun, Ado-Ekiti, was on Tuesday gutted by fire.

This comes barely five days after the governorship primaries that produced former Governor, Ayo Fayose as the party’s flag bearer in the June 21 Ekiti Gubernatorial election.

The cause of the fire which affected a section of the first floor of the secretariat is still unknown, but the state’s police public relations officer, Victor Babayemi, said the incident would be investigated.

Also speaking to newsmen, the party’s director of publicity, Kola Kolawole, said people with ‘evil minds’ might be responsible for the incident.

It was gathered that the destruction caused by the fire would have been more devastating, but for the timely intervention of men from the fire service.
