Barely two days after hoodlums disrupted the anti-Aregbesola protest in Osogbo, hoodlums suspected to be sympathetic to the All Progressives Congress (APC) again attacked some residents of the state capital believed to be against Aregbesola.
The fresh attack took place at a popular newsstand, Makson Junction, opposite Old Governor’s Office in Osogbo on Thursday and several people were injured.
According to Vanguard, the hoodlums numbering up to 25 stormed the place in six mini-buses with weapons and began attacking people at the scene.
The attacks were linked to certain people backing Aregbesola in the game of wits between the governor and a serving judge.
When contacted, APC director of Publicity and Strategy, Kunle Oyatomi said the party has decided not to comment on the issue.
One of the victims of the attack, a vendor, Kazeem Madamidola, said the hoodlums accused people around the area of being anti-Aregbesola and that those gathering to read newspapers at the newsstand were said to be speaking against Aregbesola.
“The thugs pulled down my newsstand, tore all the newspapers and started beating people up. They accused them of booing Aregbesola during the rally on Tuesday and threatened that by today, they will kill anyone who comes around here,” he said.
