APC rally

One person died on Thursday when suspected thugs invaded a rally organised by an All Progressives Congress (APC) Ogun State House of Assembly candidate, Kunle Oluomo.

Ogun police spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed that 10 persons have been arrested in connection with the attack.

Oluomo told journalists after the incident that the victim was one Thompson Emeka.

He said several others were injured in the attack.

The APC candidate alleged that the thugs were supporters of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM).

“Our boys allowed them to pass without hindrance only for APM thugs to open fire on our members bringing one of them down. I understand they are now pulling down the canopy and destroying all our properties in our constituency office at bungalow area of Ifo.

“We then contacted the police immediately, and they came right on time, and took control of the environment, so as to secure all our members. Some of the members who were injured are; Mr, Sokunbi, Ali Dan, to mention few.

“The corpse has been deposited at Ifo mortuary, while those that were injured have been taking to the hospital for medical attention,” he said.
