Vanguard reports that several people who are supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its main rival, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in ward 7 of Ibarapa East East Local Government Area of Oyo State as the governorship election is about to begin.

According to the reports, trouble started when persons who are suspected to be members of the PDP attacked a bus conveying people to the election ground.

In retaliation, some supporters of the 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 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.
