Thugs suspected to be loyal to The Peoples’ Demo­cratic Party () and
The All Progressives Congress () clashed yesterday in Gbonyin and
Irepodun/Ifelodun local government areas of Ekiti resulting in the
disappearance of four APC members.Mr. Taiwo Olatubosun, the APC spokesman in the state told Dailysun that
it was the support­ers of Governor Ayo Fayose who attacked vehicles of
his party’s members, destroying the billboards and posters of its
candidates for the March 28 and April 11 general elec­tions.

But the state’s commis­sioner of police, Mr. Taiwo Lakanu said that what
was reported to his office was a case of attack by some yet-to-be
identified thugs on the vehicles of some government officials, adding
that the po­lice have begun investiga­tions on the development.

According to an APC statement, the thugs armed with guns and machetes
stormed Igbemo-Ekiti where they disrupted APC ward meeting. A car
belonging to the party’s ward chairman was damaged while several members
were attacked in an orgy of violence that lasted several minutes
Thursday night.

According to Olatubosun,

“they came back in the night unleashing worse violence, destroying
APC candidates’ billboards and posters before Kidnapping four members in
the process.”
