IBADAN-TWO persons have been reported shot dead during the ongoing Governorship and House of Assembly elections at Ibadan South West, ward 6, unit 4.
According to the information at the disposal of Vanguard, the incident that led to the alleged death of the two unidentified persons, when speaking with a female voter who pleaded to be anonymous, was a result of an altercation that ensued between the supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) over sharing of money to their voters.
She said: ” As the voters have assembled to vote, all of sudden we just heard gunshots from different locations, as people began to scamper for safety.”
“There was no armed security men at hand to douse the tension as the ones available are not armed. After then, we just heard people talking in groups that they have killed two people,” she narrated.
She disclosed that voters were yet to return to the polling unit over their fear that more trouble might still loom.
Meanwhile, efforts to speak with the new Police Public Relations Officer(PPRO), DSP Olugbenga Fadeyi proved abortive as at the time of filing this report.
