Violence erupted when Ogun state governor, Ibikunle Amosun came on stage to campaign for the APC and Allied Peoples Movement (APM).
Few minutes into his speech, former governor Aregbesola stormed the stage to oppose the governor, asking the people to vote for only the candidates of the ruling All Progressives Congress.
As he, Aregbesola was speaking, supporters of the APM verbally opposed him.
The real pandemonium ensued when the party’s national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole came on stage.
Supporters took laws into their hands and started throwing things at the APC leaders.
similar incident occurred earlier, rival supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) clashed in Ogun state on Monday, February 11, ahead of President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to the state.
The clash occurred between supporters of Governor Ibikunle Amosun and those of the APC governorship candidate in Ogun state, Prince Dapo Abiodun.
The clash reportedly occurred at the MKO Abiola International Stadium, Abeokuta, venue of the presidential campaign rally.
The fracas was said to have started when loyalists of the Allied People’s Movement (APM) gubernatorial candidate, Adekunle Akinlade, were desperate to outshine one another.
The state governor,Amosun, who is opposed to the candidature of Abiodun, is backing Akinlade of APM as his anointed governorship candidate.
We are yet to get a full report on the circumstances surrounding the unfortunate development.
