BREAKING: Over 20 injured as APC and PDP clash in Oyo

Date:

No fewer than 20 people sustained various degrees of injuries when the supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its main rival, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) clashed in ward 7 of Ibarapa East East Local Government Area of Oyo State.

This incident occurred early this morning of today, Saturday, March 18, 2023, as the governorship election is about to begin.

According to reports, trouble started when some suspected supporters of PDP allegedly attacked a bus carrying some people to the election ground

In a reprisal attack, some supporters of APC were said to have traced the leaders of the attackers to their hideout where a free-for-all ensued, leaving many people wounded.

At least, one of the wounded was said to be on the danger list at an undisclosed hospital in the town.

As of the time of filing this report, efforts to contact the state’s Police Public Relations Officer, Adewale Osifeso, to comment on the matter, proved abortive, as calls placed across to him were not answered.
