Recent reports have it that three people died in Osun State after a fight broke out between supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The violence reportedly erupted in Ile-Ife, on Saturday, April 11, 2015.
The fight is said to have raged through the night of 11th of April till the next day, April 12, with gun shots in some areas of the town before the arrival of security agent.
Sources revealed that dangerous weapons such as guns, cutlasses, knives, charms among others were freely used by the fighters, while innocent citizens of the town ran for cover.
It was gathered that the two out of the three victims of the Gbodo clash were siblings of a notable politician whose house was also razed during the crisis.
“After the clash in Ayetoro here, a lifeless body was seen near the road leading out of this neighbourhood, but we were all too scared to come out. Many people were also injured and properties were damaged”, a resident said in a telephone chat.
“I saw a corpse on the road after the fight had subsided. Everybody ran inside to avoid being caught in the crossfire. I hope the number of casualties is not more than that,” a resident, Adewale Idowu
The incident was confirmed by the Public Relations Officer of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in the state, Babawale Afolabi.
