UPDATE: Police Confirms Two Deaths As Violence Rocks Osun PDP Ward Congress

The Osun State Police Command has confirmed the deaths of two persons in connection with the Ward Congress of the People's Democratic Party held across the State on Wednesday.

The command’s spokesperson, SP Yemisi Opalola in a statement said: “One Toheeb Mutallib was killed at Agberire village in Iwo Local Government Area, after he was cut with a cutlass, while the other victims were taken to an undisclosed hospital and responding to treatment.

“One Aremu Olamide too was killed with gun in Ipetumodu, Ife-North Local Government Area, while the other victim was also taken to hospital and is being treated.”

IFECITYBLOG had earlier reported of a violent attack recorded at the Party's Secretariat located in Ipetumodu, Ife North Local Government during the election of its ad-hoc Ward delegates with casualties yet to be confirmed at the time.

The violence according to the source was allegedly perpetrated by armed thugs who unleashed mayhem while the Congress was on.

The Party's Congress scheduled to hold between Wednesday 23rd and Thursday 24th February, 2022 is expected to produce 3 delegates from each of the 332 wards across the state who will in turn elect the governorship candidate for the party in the July 16th gubernatorial polls.
