A middle-aged man simply identified as Isah Azeez was murdered on Monday following a fracas that broke out between supporters of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) and the All Progressive Congress (APC) over the control of local government administration in Oyo State .
No fewer than 10 people were said to have sustained injuries.
The injured, it was learnt, are recuperating in an undisclosed medical facility in Ogbomoso.
On Sunday, Police Commissioner, Shina Olukolu in a statement warned politicians that the command would not fold its arms and allow the state to relapse into bloodshed.
Before the killing, the son of former governor Christopher Adebayo Alao-Akala, Olamiju, who was among the elected council chairmen sacked by Governor Seyi Makinde, was allegedly attacked by hoodlums when he was on his way to resume office .
According to eyewitness account, trouble started when the loyalists of both parties clashed at the Ogbomoso North Local Government Secretariat, after exchange of words.
It was gathered that both the Caretaker Chairman appointed by Governor Makinde, Ibrahim Ajagbe and the sacked elected Chairman, Olamiju Alao- Akala, were at the council’s secretariat to resume when their supporters threw caution to the wind.
