A group of thugs loyal to the All Progressives Congress, APC have attacked some supporters of Ondo state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, injuring several and destroying their campaign vehicle.
According to Ondoevents.com, thugs allegedly loyal to one of the Governorship Aspirants of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former deputy clerk of the National Assembly, Mr. Olayide Adelami were responsible for the attack.
The nasty incident occurred on Sunday during a party meeting around Igboroko in Owo, Owo local government area of the state.
Trouble started when APC members under the Owo Youths Redemption Group (OYRG) led by one Olamide Olayemi, declared support for the re-election of the state Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN.
Speaking on the development, Olamide said; “At about 2 pm around Igboroko here, we were holding our meeting as a group to declare our total support for the re-election of Governor Akeredolu when these thugs brandishing sophisticated weapons such as guns, axes and cutlasses arrived at the theatre of crime in two vans and a white pick up belonging to Eni Omosule.”
“The thugs fired gunshots sporadically in the open and destroyed Aketi’s campaign bus packed along the street. People scampered for their dear lives while the melee lasted for about an hour.”
He disclosed that several of their members were hit by stray bullets.
“It took divine intervention and human efforts of Hon. Fatai Lawal who paid the bill to extract bullets from the bodies of Ijalana Oluwafemi, Ogunbodede Opeyemi, Idowu Ola Onibuore and one other person whose identity is yet to be identified.”
