3 Badly Injured as Armed Thugs Orchestrate Violence in Idanre Ahead of LG Polls
Three persons were today attacked by armed thugs at the secretariat of the Social Democratic Party(SDP) in Idanre Local Government Area of Ondo State.
The thugs were allegedly of the All Progressives Congress(APC), even as the State gears up for Local Government elections in all its 18 LGA’s.
A Source said the thugs who wielded machetes and axes pounced on everyone they saw in sight.
He said, “The thugs have started again, they are moving from one location to another to attack us. They have attacked three other persons.”
“This time around, it is not even a case of an attack on SDP members or candidate for the election but it is an attack on those they feel could give them problems on the election day.”
“I learnt they have a list of names of those to be attacked with them and now they are moving from one house to another to carry out the mission.”
Reports gathered said that military personnel have since been drafted to Idanre to restore order.
