Many injured as APC, PDP supporters clash in Ekiti

Two people have reportedly lost their lives, while six others sustained injuries during a clash between two political parties in Ifon, Ose Local Government Area of Ondo State.

It was gathered that the two political parties, the All Progress Congress (APC) and ADC, had rancour over territorial grounds of campaign during their campaign at Elegbeka village via Ifon, Ose Local Government Area.

It was further gathered that while the fight was on going, a Dyna mini-van conveying market women from the Ifon market had a head on collision with a another upcoming vehicle which made the driver to die on the spot.

An eye witness account said, “Two people were rushed to the Federal Medical Centre, Owo, while the other people sitting in front with the driver, sustained broken legs and have been taken to a native bone doctor. The others were taken to a nearby hospital and they are currently receiving treatment.

Narrated his ordeal, he said, “As the ADC people were performing their peaceful campaign in Elegbeka, we did not bother about anything, because they were familiar faces in our community.

“But by the time we got to the outskirt of Ifon town, we saw Adelegbe’s boys blocking our way. They were holding broken bottles and cutlasses in their hands. Before we knew it, they attacked us.

It was while I was trying to run from the venue that they held me. All I was hearing was the shouting “ADC lo wa” as the sharp pain pierced my body with blood gushing out from the matchet injuries. I managed to escape for my life.”
