2019: Two Injured As PDP, APC Members Clash In Osun
No fewer than two members of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Osun State were reportedly axed by suspected members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members in Kajola of Atakumosa West Local Government area of the state.
The incident which occurred last Friday, a night to the conduct of the postponed Presidential and National Assembly elections, left several others wounded as a result of different degree of injuries sustained on different parts of their bodies.
The axed persons were the Iyaloja of Atakumosa West Local Government, Adegboku Iyabode and her son, Olalekan Jimoh who are currently receiving medical treatment at an undisclosed hospital.
The Iyaloja got her legs axed while her son got one of his fingers cut during the severe attack unleashed on them.
Narrating her ordeal on Tuesday, Adegboku stated that, they were in a meeting on the fateful night when the hoodlums attacked them.
She called on the concerned authorities, who are the security agents, to act fast by investigating the case and bring the perpetrators to book.
Also, Francis Famurewa, Chairman, Atakumosa West Local Government Area, described the act as barbaric and hinted that the case had been reported to the appropriate quarters.
Famurewa wondered why politics could degenerate to the point of maiming one another and called on the police to expedite action in righting all wrongs to forestall future occurrence.
