Scores of supporters at an All Progressives Congress rally in the Oworonshoki area of Lagos State on Monday fled as thugs invaded the rally, stabbing two youths in the process.

GISTMANIA learnt that the violence was caused by a supremacy battle between two rival cults based in the Bariga area of the state.

A correspondent, who witnessed the incident, observed that policemen folded their arms as the thugs unleashed mayhem.

Journalists, who were covering the event, clustered on the platform to avoid being caught in the crossfire.

The thugs did not seem disturbed as the violence continued even while Governor Babatunde Fashola was delivering a speech alongside leaders of the APC in the Kosofe Local Government Area of the state.

One of the youths that was attacked attempted to escape, but he was surrounded by assailants and stabbed with a knife and hacked with a cutlass.

As the victim still struggled to escape, he was pushed to the floor and trampled upon by the suspected cult members.

It was observed that after stabbing the two youths, the thugs who thought they were dead fled the scene.

Minutes later, however, policemen and officials of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority were able to revive the injured youths who were rushed to a nearby hospital.

It was noted that after the fighting had ended, some supporters still refused to return to the campaign ground.
