1 Mins read

With less than seven days to governorship election in Ondo state, tension has heightened in Akure the Ondo state capital Saturday evening and early hours of Sunday as supporters of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and those of the major opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) engaged in a deadly clash.

It was gathered that the fight which erupted between supporters of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu and flagbearer of the PDP, Eyitayo Jegede at Oba-Nla area of Akure, claimed the life of a yet-to-be identified man.

This is happening barely two weeks after similar incident was recorded at Ipele in Owo local government, and Oba-Akoko area of Akoko west area of the state.

Reacting to the incident, the state police public relations officer (PPRO) ASP Theo Leo Ikorro confirmed that there was an incident at the Oba-Nla area of Akure on Saturday where groups of miscreants engaged in attack and also made burn-fire distrupting vehicular movements in the major streets of the state capital.

He stated that there was no case of casualty recorded, except one injured case that is receiving treatment in one of the hospital.

He said there was a case of reprisal attack early on Sunday morning which the police foiled such, adding that there was no arrest made on the incident.

Some citizens that spoke on the incidents across the state, noted it is attempt by a certain political party to scare voters and create unnecessary fear and tension during the forthcoming election.

However, neither APC nor PDP has reacted to the incident at time of filling this report.
