Secretary to the Ekiti West Local Government Caretaker Committee and immediate past Special Assistant (Political) to Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State, Mr. Tai Oguntayo and 12 others were today arraigned before an Ado-Ekiti Magistrate Court for unlawful possession of firearms.

They were arraigned before Magistrate Soji Adegboye, of Magistrate Court one on two count charges of unlawful possession of firearms and conduct likely to cause breach of public peace.

The accused were granted bail with two sureties.
Oguntayo and 12 others were arrested last Saturday over the fracas between his faction of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in Okemesi-Ekiti and that of Hon. Kayode Fashakin, a member of the State House of Assembly.

Five guns were allegedly found at his official residence at the Local Council Guest House, Aramoko Ekiti.

Oguntayo was alleged to have led thugs to unleash terror on supporters of Hon Fashakin, with three people said to have sustained serious injuries.
