A protest by Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members and supporters is ongoing in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, following move by the All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmakers in the State House of Assembly to impeach Governor Ayodele Fayose, over alleged constitutional breaches.

However, the police said they have dislodged party supporters from the state House of Assembly complex.

Commissioner of Police, Ekiti State Command, Taiwo Lakanu, said the Force would not relent in its mandate to protect lives and properties without fear or favour

So far, there is heavy security presence in strategic locations in Ado Ekiti, even as entry routes have been blocked and taken over by security operatives.

It would be recalled that members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state on Monday blocked the two major roads leading to the Assembly complex following the threat by the19 APC lawmakers to impeach Fayose.
