Meanwhile, newsmen learnt that crisis erupted when some youths barred Sha’aba, a former governor of the state, who is representing Kwara North in the Senate, from entering the town.

A source said the youths’ action was as a result of the alleged failure of the senator to assist the community in repairing a collapsed culvert on the road leading to the town.

The youths were said to have barricaded the road when Sha’aba was coming home for the council poll.

They allegedly insisted that he would not pass through the culvert that they mobilised resources to repair.

The source said when the senator found it difficult to enter the town, he called for security reinforcement.

The source said when the security men, mostly soldiers arrived, they allegedly shot sporadically and killed three persons.

The source claimed the action of the security personnel led the youths to burn the residence of the senator.
