Some political thugs who allegedly murdered two members of the Accord Party (AP), in Ibadan, Oyo State, have been arrested by the state Police Command.
The Director-General of the Ladoja Campaign Organisation, Hon Adeolu Adeleke, had earlier alleged that thugs believed to be from the All Progressive Congress (APC), had invaded a rally organised by the AP's House of Representatives candidate, Gbenga Adewusi, swooped on the participants and fired shots at them, leaving two party faithful dead while several others were wounded.
But while parading the suspects at the command's headquarters at Eleyele, Ibadan the state Commissioner of Police, Muhammad Katsina, said that eight persons were arrested with sophisticated weapons believed to have been used in the attack.
The suspects names were given as Afeez Ishola, Olamide Ijaola, Sikiru Tunayese, Sunday Balogun, Lekan Ogeroju, Kazeem Ajibola, Kehinde Emiola and Musibau Akinola.
He further said that the suspects have confessed to participating in the attack.
