A statement by the media aide to the APC governorship candidate, Rafiu Ajakaye, in Ilorin, yesterday, said two persons, who were seriously injured by gunshots, were receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital.

Ajakaye, who said Kwara APC governorship candidate, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, was quickly whisked away from the rally, called on security agencies to buckle up and tame hooligans terrorising electioneering campaigns in the state.

The APC said it had already predicted that the PDP thugs would mass-produce vests and other APC logos to destroy things and attack innocent citizens, stating that it is an old tactic for which the PDP and its patrons are known.

Commenting on the development, the Director General of the PDP campaign council in the state, Prof. Suleiman Abubakar, said the orgy of violence was being perpetrated by the APC leaders in the state to instill fear in the residents ahead of the coming general elections, having discovered that Kwarans had rejected them.
