Amosun's Ilaro Rally: 1 Dead, 16 Arrested

The people of Ilaro in Yewa South Local Government Area of Ogun State witnessed the height of pandemonium as two groups of hoodlums clashed, leaving one person dead. Biodun Sowunmi, who escaped the clash, said the incident occurred during the assessment tour of Governor Ibikunle Amosun to the local government. According to the eyewitness, who is also a public analyst, the gangs were fighting over territorial protection. The incident reportedly left many people injured as a result of dangerous weapons used by the rival gangs. It was gathered that the incident occurred outside the venue of the assessment tour and did not affect the programme. The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Muyiwa Adejobi, confirmed that one person lost his life. Adejobi said the incident was masterminded by hoodlums who used dangerous weapons freely. He disclosed that 16 people had been arrested, while weapons, including four pump action guns, cutlasses, axes and assorted charms were seized. Source: Vanguard
