THREE persons were, yesterday, feared dead and scores injured including journalists, as hoodlums

invaded the campaign of the All Progressives Congress, APC, old motor parks Igboora .

The hoodlums invaded the venue with guns, daggers  and  other dangerous weapons, engaging one another in a bloody factional fight.

The situation sent panic across the campaign ground as party members ran in different directions to avoid being hit by bullets being fired indiscriminately by the hoodlums.

Security operatives had a hectic time controlling the situation. In the ensuing confusion, many people were dispossessed of their phones, money and other valuables by opportunistic pick-pockets and other criminals.

A large number of party faithful were seen trekking to their various homes as there was  a heavy  vehicular traffic in the area because of the violence .
