Three injured during clash at Osun APC meeting

Three people were injured during a fracas that broke out at the meeting of the All Progressives Congress of Ife East Central Local Council Development Area, Modakeke, on Friday.

The meeting held at St. Stephen Grammar School, Modakeke was said to have ended abruptly when the APC chairman for the LCDA, Taiwo Olalonkun, asked members to react to the allegations that Special Adviser to Osun governor on Science and Innovation, Ismail Akande, changed the list of candidates selected for community policing work from the town.

One of those injured was said to be a personal assistant to Akande, who reportedly dismissed allegations against his boss when the matter was raised at the meeting. Speaking on the matter, Olanlokun accused Akande of replacing those who were nominated for the community policing job by many groups in the town with his cronies.

Although he admitted that there was a fight when the matter was raised at the meeting, he however kept silent on the number of people injured.

When contacted, Akande confirmed that  three people including his Personal Assistant were seriously injured during the fight. He denied changing the list submitted by the community, adding that he was told to draw a list of five people which he did.
