“As they moved towards me, I pulled back in reverse for about 500 metres, to avoid accident and then I jumped down and started running while they started running after me throwing stones. I was lucky to get an okada rider who took me away”, he further recounts saying it was some of his old students who witnessed the episode that prevented them from burning down his car.

” It was the ex-students who later came to collect my car keys in my house and brought it home”. He narrated saying his house along Aule road was later surrounded at night by not less than 50 hoodlums who kept chanting “Fasua, you are a bastard. You sold your birth right to Akeredolu. It took the tenants hours of pleading and persuasion to prevent them from burning my property”, he said.

While thanking God for saving his life, Prince Fasua pleaded with the good people of Akure most especially the youths to give peace a chance. “We don’t need to fight ourselves, we all have different roles to play for the development of Akure and Ondo State at large”, he stressed
