Governor Fayose is pictured addressing a mammoth crowd outside the government house moments ago. The governor collapsed after policemen fired teargas at the government House in Ado-Ekiti.
He was rushed to the government House clinic and later to the emergence unit of the Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, Ado-Ekiti.
