Exactly two years after surviving gunshot wounds at a rally organised to kick-off Dr Kayode Fayemi’s governorship campaign, On Friday, June 1st, 2018 from a policeman who released sporadic shots at the All Progressives Congress (APC) rally in Ado-Ekiti.
Then a member of the House of Representatives, Opeyemi Bamidele, served as the Director-General of the Kayode Fayemi campaign in the Ekiti governorship election in June 2018. While Fayemi was the guber candidate of the APC in the July 14, 2018 governorship election in Ekiti state.
This followed the extraction of two bullets from Bamidele’s abdomen and leg by doctors at the Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, Ado Ekiti, then moved to Lagos for post-surgery treatment and subsequently flown abroad and returned to Nigeria after two months treating gunshot injury in the UK and US.
The Lawmaker who is now representing Ekiti Central and also the Chairman, Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters, Senator Michael Opeyemi Bamidele took to his social media pages to expressed gratitude to God and well meaning Nigerians who stood for him.
I’M GRATEFUL FOR EVER
