"The two vehicles actually ran into the riot ignorantly. The Dyna driver and one passenger in the front seat died instantly while others were rushed to the Federal Medical center, Owo.
"Everybody was only trying to run for safety during the melee and that was what really caused the accident."
A victim of the clash, Samuel Ojo said ADC's rally had begun when familiar faces from APC in the community appeared with cutlasses and broken bottles which caused commotion.
"It was while I was trying to run that they held me and started beating me. All I was hearing was the shout of 'ADC lo wa' meaning he is in ADC, kill him.
"Then I heard a sharp pain pierced my body and blood was gushing out from the machete Injury. How I escaped was still a mystery to me."
Confirming the incident, the state police command spokesman, Femi Joseph noted that normalcy has been restored to the area.
