One person was reportedly shot on Thursday as Governor Dapo Abiodun was campaigning for the All Progressives Congress (APC) on a campaign tour to Odeda Local Government Area of Ogun State.
As the campaign was going on, sporadic gunshots were fired by rival cult groups leading to tension in the area.
It was gathered that the shooting brought the event to an abrupt end
Reacting, the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said nobody was killed in the incident.
Oyeyemi, however confirmed that one person was shot by cultists,
According to him, some hoodlums only took advantage of the gathering to unleash terror on each other after Abiodun had left.
He said: “The governor went on campaign to Odeda, but he had even left before the fracas broke out between two rival cult groups. One person was shot, but he didn’t die. Nobody died. If anybody says the campaign team was attacked, it is complete misinformation. The governor had even left, almost 30 to 40 minutes before the incident.”
“You know when there is a gathering like that, some of these hoodlums will always take advantage of it to launch attack on each other. One person was shot and the person did not die. As I am talking to you, he’s in a very stable condition. He didn’t die, nobody died,” Oyeyemi empasised.
“We are on it. Investigation has commenced and we are on the trail of the perpetrators of that crime. I am very sure, very soon we are going to get the person arrested.”
