Yesterday, GISTMANIA brought to you the story of political parties clash in Ibadan (Read here, If you Missed).

However, Police in Oyo State yesterday paraded suspected the political thugs who allegedly killed two Accord Party (AP) members at Odinjo area of Ibadan on Sunday. The Director-General, Ladoja Campaign Organisation, Hon Adeolu Adeleke, had on Sunday evening alleged that during a rally organised by the Accord House of Representatives candidate, Gbenga Adewusi, at Odinjo, thugs from the All Progressives Congress (APC) swooped on the participants and fired sporadic shots at them.

This, according to him, resulted in the death of the two people while 15 others sustained varying degrees of injury. But the state APC Publicity Director, Wale Sadare, denied the involvement of members of his party in the fight, saying that the thugs were loyal to Adewusi.

The state Commissioner of Police, Muhammad Katsina, while parading the suspects at the state police command headquarters at Eleyele, Ibadan, yesterday, said that eight persons were arrested with sophisticated weapons believed to have been used in the attack. The commissioner gave the names of the suspects as Afeez Ishola, Olamide Ijaola, Sikiru Tunayese, Sunday Balogun, Lekan Ogeroju, Kazeem Ajibola, Kehinde Emiola and Musibau Akinola. He said: “The state police command, in its unrelenting effort to ensure an atmosphere devoid of political thugs in the state, on March 1, 2015, about 4.30pm, repelled and caught up with the thugs who attacked AP campaign in Ibadan.

“The party held the campaign without notifying the police. A group of thugs reportedly led by one Yusuf Ogeoju alias Ese Water attacked the rally, shooting sporadically into the crowd and resulting in the shooting of several persons. “One Kehinde Bello died on the spot while Sarafa Adedeji died at Ege Trado-Medical Centre. Nine others were left injured.” Katsina said the leader of the attackers, who had been on the police wanted list, sustained gunshot injury during confrontation with the police and later died in the hospital.

He added: “Following the swift intervention, peace was restored in the area. One pump action rifle, three live cartridges and three expended cartridges were recovered from the group. Another notorious thug, Afeez Ishola aka Ifa, was arrested with a pump action rifle and three live cartridges.”
