Violence erupts in Okitipupa as Ondo APC governorship primary enters crucial stage

Tensions have escalated at Ward 1, Stella Maris College, Okitipupa, as supporters of rival aspirants vying for the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidacy in the upcoming Ondo State Governorship election clashed violently.

Accredited party members, gathered in anticipation of the candidate selection process, were forced to flee as violence erupted among factions supporting different aspirants.

The situation spiralled out of control before the accreditation and election process could commence, leaving voters scrambling for safety.

According to a witness who preferred anonymity, the chaos ensued when one of the agents representing an aspirant allegedly seized the validation and accreditation papers and fled the venue in a car.

“One of the agents came here, snatched the validation and accreditation papers and fled the venue in his car.

“They chased him but could not catch him. This caused the violence,” he said.

Despite the presence of security agents at the ward, they could not contain the situation, leading to the dispersal of everyone at the scene.
