The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) clashed in another form of thuggery by unleashing mayhem in Ipele Community in Owo Local Government Area of Ondo State on Tuesday when they threw caution into the wind in a free-for-all fight with dangerous weapons.
The clash was the second in two weeks between the supporters of the incumbent governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN) and his major opponent, Mr. Eyitayo Jegede (SAN) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) where many people were seriously injured and properties destroyed.
The clash was said to have occurred when the campaign train of the PDP arrived in the community.
Following the incident, Jegede alleged that policemen supervised the attack on his campaign train by thugs.
According to Jegede, who spoke through his campaign’s Head of Media Research, Kayode Fasua, the political thugs suspected to be from the camp of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC attacked supporters of the PDP upon their entry into Ipele.
Specifically, the Divisional Police Officer, DPO of Ipele was alleged to have backed the thugs all through the attack.
Meanwhile, the camp of Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has accused the PDP candidate of instigating the attack in the community.
While emphasizing the PDP is crying more than the bereaved, the Spokesperson of the Akeredolu/Aiyedatiwa Campaign Organization, Olabode Richard Olatunde stated that “Eyiyato Jegede SAN, ordered his thugs to unleash coordinated attacks on the innocent people of Ipele and Ijebu in Owo local government area. Our people were traumatized with the sound of gunshots sporadically by Eyiyato Jegede thugs in Owo today.
“Sensing that the PDP might be in the main town, Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, ordered his campaign convoy to take another route out of the town.
