The Oyo State PDP Congress ended in a free-for-all fight. For the second time within 24 hours, gunmen alleged to be members of the Oyo State Park Management System have attacked Jogor Centre, venue of the ongoing State Congress of a faction of the Oyo chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
No fewer than five people were injured while more than 40 vehicles parked outside the venue were damaged.
The hoodlums, who stormed the venue from the back gate, were heard shooting sporadically into the air and hacking anyone seen insight. One of the cars damaged belongs to Murhi International Television (MiTV), which was used to convey reporters to the scene
The hoodlums were also seen brandishing cutlass, axes, guns and other dangerous weapons. A yet-to-be-identified delegate sustained matchet wounds as he was struck on the head.
