Two people were killed and several people were yesterday injured when the Oyo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, took its campaign to the three local government areas of Ibarapaland.
OYO INSIGHT learnt that there were clashes in Igboora, headquarters of Ibarapa Central local government and Eruwa, headquarters of Ibarapa East local government.
Residents of Igboora were, however, unlucky as rival thugs allegedly unleashed mayhem.
Sources told this newspaper that witness “The campaign was already going on smoothly when suddenly, gunshot rented the air and later we saw some hoodlums with dangerous weapon attacking people.”
“One cannot ascertain whether those who launched the attack were members of the opposition parties or cult group but because they seemed to have their target.”
The source, who didn’t want name in print, explained further that Governor Abiola Ajimo and some of his aides including the party’s gubernatorial candidate, Oloye Adebayo Adelabu? were about leaving when the incident started and they escaped unhurt.
“Some of the victims are in critical conditions and we pray for quick recovery for them.”
